Verizon readies the launch of two new LG smartphones, the LG Aloha and LG Fathom.
The Aloha will be LG’s first Android handset for the US. It should be a North American version of the LG SU2300, featuring Android 2.1, a WVGA AMOLED touchscreen display, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, GPS, 5MP camera, and 1GHz Snapdragon processor.
According to Android Central, the Verizon Aloha will actually be called LG Ally. As you can see in the image below, the Ally looks a bit different than the LU2300.
A commenter at Android Central suggests that Sprint will launch a version of the LG Aloha, too, which should feature 4G connectivity (like the HTC EVO 4G).
As for the LG Fathom, Boy Genius Report has it that it should be out on Verizon at the same time with the Ally (sometime in May). The Fathom is a Windows Mobile 6.5 handset with a WVGA touchscreen display, QWERTY keyboard and 3.2MP camera.
The prices of LG Aloha / Ally and LG Fathom are not known at the moment
