LG Optimus LTE2 announced
June 6, 2012
If you're not a fan of the Galaxy III or Samsung in general, take a look at what LG's flagship phone will be. As the name implies, the LG Optimus LTE2 is ‘better' than the previous model in the series. According to initial specification reports, it highlights True HD-IPS LCD touchscreen, default Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, a higher battery capacity, and a TV tuner. With its 2GB of RAM, you will never have to worry about running out of memory ever again. Not everyone is impressed with this key feature, but it is pretty useful for full-featured smartphones such as this one. It is also actually the first smartphone to have such a high RAM capacity. As a flagship mobile device, the LG LTE2 boasts the usage of metal and glass with its design. Judging from the photos, it looks pretty smooth and elegant, but its surface is a fingerprint magnet and the build is too wide to fit the palm of some people's hands. The processor, chipset, and graphics processor are not yet revealed. But because it runs on Android OS, features LTE, and a 2GB RAM, we're expecting high-capacity hardware to be included. The initial specification reports also say that an 8MP camera with HD video recorder is included, and they can be controlled using your voice. 2GB internal storage, gyro sensor, SNS integration, active noise cancellation, and document editor are on-board. A media player, Google Apps, organizer, and Swype text input are also reported to be included in the package. The LG Optimus LTE2 has been officially announced for the Korean market and is expected to roll out mid-May. There is no word yet on its international release, but if there wouldn't be one, we expect LG to come up with a high-end device that can compete with the Samsung Galaxy III, or maybe even the rumored iPhone 5.
