Maybe this phone isn’t the most interesting one to arrive in this period ( remember Unpacked 2011 ? ), but it would be a mistake to underestimate the newest member of LG’s LTE phones, the LG Optimus LTE. The Korean company is renowned for its advances in LTE technology, as it made the first video phone call on a LTE network in 2011. However, the highlight is LG’s Optimus LTE 4.5-inch HD display. It is clear that Android fans and users are getting two major overall improvements this fall, one being Ice Cream Sandwich and the other is the avalanche of HD phones on their way.
The LG Optimus LTE uses a 4.5-inch True HD IPS display sporting a 1280 x 720 resolution with 322 dpi. The iPhone 4S has 326 dpi, but I am sure nobody can spot the difference. It also features 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB internal storage plus a 16GB microSD card to save your photos taken with the 8 MP shooter on the back. A 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU is also present, and it is powered by a 1830 mAh battery. Even after stuffing so much in it, it only weighs 135 grams and has a slim waistline of only 10.4 mm.
Unfortunately, the LG Optimus LTE is available only in Korea for now, with no details of when will it cross US ( and other ) borders. For now, it looks like the HTC Vigor is going to get pole-position in the HD race, as many rumors point to a October 30 release date.
I am very excited to see the big battle between the LG Optimus LTE and its nemesis, the Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE HD. While both have similar size and dpi, LG opted out for IPS LCD technology and Samsung uses a S-AMOLED display. Which one would you choose ?
Oh and by the way, does anyone think that this phone is going to be released in the US as the LG Revolution 2 ?
