Following Samsung, LG has also announced its first HD smartphone (which, of course, runs Android Gingerbread): the Optimus LTE.
The new LG Optimus LTE was unveiled in Korea, and comes with a 4.5 inch, 1280 x 720 IPS display, thus it packs a pixel density higher than the one of Samsung’s Galaxy S II HD LTE (4.65 inch, 1280 x 720).
The Optimus LTE further features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, HDMI, DLNA, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 4GB of internal memory, a 16GB memory card pre-installed, and a 1,830 mAh battery.
The handset will have two slightly different versions in Korea: the LG SU640 (for SK Telecom – pictured first) and the LG LU6200 (for LG U+).
According to LG, the Optimus LTE will cost 899,800 won (about $754). Reportedly, “availability of Optimus LTE in markets outside of Korea has not yet been determined”, so we have to wait a bit until we’ll find out if the smartphone will headed to Europe and North America or not.
