Verizon LG Revolution will launch on May 26
Verizon’s LG Revolution, yet another 4G LTE capable Android smartphone to join Big Red’s portfolio, will be launched on May 26. That’s what documentation obtained by Droid-Life clearly shows, and it makes next Thursday a day of big launches for the carrier. Alongside the LG Revolution, May 26 will be the first day in stores for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play as well as the Motorola Droid X2.
The LG Revolution was originally announced in January at CES, and since then we’ve seen it once even during Mobile World Congress in February. Since the unveiling, the back of the device has turned black, and, just as we heard it would, the Revolution will be one of the first handsets to take advantage of Qi wireless charging (with a compatible back plate).
The LG Revolution is the first 4G LTE device to ship with Bing integration instead of the usual Google search you may be used to finding on Android smartphones. The LG Revolution runs Android 2.2 Froyo, with LG UI customizations on top. It has a 1 GHz processor, a 4.3-inch 800×480 capacitive touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with 720p HD video recording, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, HDMI out, and comes with a preinstalled 16 GB microSD card.
