Last month, LG first unveiled the Optimus LTE, its first smartphone to come with a 720p HD touchscreen. This superphone also comes with LTE connectivity, just like its name implies. Since being announced in LG’s native Korea, the Optimus LTE was also spotted once headed to Bell in Canada (although possibly under a different name).
And if you were wondering whether the Optimus LTE would make it to the USA, wonder no more. It will. AT&T will sell its very own version of this handset, dubbed LG Nitro HD. That may just be an appropriate name.
The Nitro HD can be seen pictured above and it will have a 4.5-inch 720p HD touchscreen, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, an 8 MP camera, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of ROM, microSD card support, Bluetooth 3.0, 21 Mbps HSDPA, 4G LTE, and a 1,830 mAh battery. It will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Unfortunately even if we do have the name, specs, and first leaked render of this device, we still don’t know just when the Nitro HD will be in stores, or how much it will cost. However, because of the upcoming holiday shopping season, AT&T would be smart to launch it as soon as possible.
