LG Announces Optimus GJ – Waterproof Optimus G Coming to Taiwan

Sure, the Kyocera Hydro Edge and XTRM are all fine and dandy, but LG just announced the Optimus GJ. What’s so special about this GJ, you ask? Well, take the already-awesome LG Optimus G – Now make it waterproof.

The LG Optimus GJ rocks many of the same specifications you’d find on the existing Optimus G, like a beautiful 4.7 inch display, 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB RAM, and 13 megapixel camera, just to name a few.

Most water-resistant/proof devices have largely been on the low-end of the market. This changed with the Sony Xperia Z, and we’re more than happy to see that LG is taking the plunge and making a high-end waterproof device as well.

Having a water proof device may not be a must-have feature, but it’s certainly gaining more traction. Plus,we couldn’t imagine someone being against such a feature.

The LG Optimus GJ will land in Taiwan in June for $17,990 TWD ($600 US Dollars). A wider roll-out of availability has yet to be announced.
