LG announces flagship Optimus LTE2 smartphone

While the whole world has been talking about the Samsung Galaxy S III and its groundbreaking specs, among other things, another Korean company, LG has announced its own flagship device. While it may not have generated the same amount of pre-launch excitement, LG wants the device itself to do the talking. Let’s have a look at the features and specifications of the LG Optimus LTE2.

Starting off with the design and build, unlike the plastic overalls of the Galaxy S III, the Optimus LTE2 is made up of glass and metal. It comes with a TrueHD IPS display, the resolution hasn’t been revealed yet, but we’re hoping it’s 720p, keeping in mind the current competition. However, the most important spec that places the Optimus LTE2 apart from the competition is that it comes with a whopping 2GB of RAM, which is the first for any smartphone, including the now announced Samsung Galaxy S III. The other features that are included are wireless charging (backed by the Wireless Power Consortium), 4G LTE, a 2150 mAh battery and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The two main specs – the processor and the screen size – haven’t been mentioned yet, though. Keeping in mind the remaining specs, we can safely assume that the other two will be top of the line as well. 


Seeing how battery life is the one taking the beating due to the current specs of smartphones, LG has announced that this new smartphone, the Optimus LTE2 will have a battery life more optimized than 40 percent of existing smartphones. The camera will come with a voice recognition function that will enable faster snapping. Face unlocking will be present as well. 


Pricing and availability for the Indian sub-region hasn’t been announced, yet, but this smartphone will be available in Korea by the middle of this month. More images on the LG Optimus LTE2 are available here. So, the Samsung Galaxy S III has finally arrived. But has it already become second best on paper? We’ll have to wait and watch till the full spec sheet of the Optimus LTE2 is available.
