LG Optimus LTE2 image and details leak
Another high-end handset from the company, the Eclipse 4G LTE, also leaked
Published: 11 May, 2012
Last week saw LG launch its Optimus LTE2 on the same day as Samsung's Galaxy S3, perhaps not the smartest moving as it's obvious where the lion's share of the high-end love lies, but the few specs which were revealed at the time suggested that it would be no slouch compared to Samsung's device. Now more details and a new image have emerged revealing a little bit more about the device which might not inspire the same amount of excitement as the new Galaxy smartphone but is certainly looking to be a viable alternative.
Key features at the time of its announcement were confirmed to include a True HD IPS display, 2GB of RAM and a 2,150mAh battery. In addition to this it's also going to offer wireless charging and Ice Cream Sandwich installed straight out of the box. It all sounds promising but info on its screen size and processor was noticeably absent.
However according to this week's leaked information the LTE2's screen will measure 4.7" and be powered (slightly disappointingly) by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor. While it won't offer the quad-core prowess of Samsung's handset it is going to offer more RAM compared to the Galaxy S3's 1GB.
For those hoping for an LG handset that offers a quad-core processor all is not lost as specs of another device currently known as the LG LS970 Eclipse 4G LTE have also hit the web this week. If accurate then the Eclipse will offer a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 4.7" screen. A 2100mAh battery, rear-facing 13mp camera and front-facing 1.3mp camera are on the cards as well.
The LTE2 is set to be released in Korea this month but there's no word yet on how much it's going to cost when it arrives or when it's going to land in other markets.
