LG Optimus G has a burgundy version

Until now, LG has showcased its Optimus G smartphone in three color versions: black, white, and red. The red one is an NTT DoCoMo exclusive in Japan, where the handset is called LG L-01E (see it here), so it can’t be purchased in other countries. But we have been able to spot a fourth color version of the device — burgundy — which could make it to more markets. The burgundy Optimus G has appeared on advertising materials in South Korea. It hasn’t been officially announced, but you can see it in the snapshot below.

Meanwhile, LG has confirmed its CES 2013 presence with a trailer video that briefly shows the curves of a smartphone, among other products:

We can’t really tell if that’s a new handset, or just the current Optimus G. It could be the Optimus G2, which reportedly features a huge 5.5 inch Full HD screen, Android Jelly Bean,and a next-generation quad-core processor from Qualcomm. If that’s the case, the burgundy Optimus G will not matter much, as everyone is going to focus on the new model.

The Optimus G is still running Android Ice Cream Sandwich, but we should hope it won’t be long until LG rolls-out an update to Jelly Bean for it.
