LG Optimus LTE reaches record sales in Korea
Launched last month in South Korea, the LG Optimus LTE has been sold in more than 150,000 units until now, this making it the company’s fastest-selling smartphone in its home country.
The Optimus LTE is available via two of Korea’s major mobile carriers (SK Telecom and LG U+), and is LG’s first handset to sport an HD (1280 x 720) touchscreen display. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP video-calling camera, and 20GB of storage space (4GB internal, 16GB on a pre-installed card).
Starting next week (November 22), the LG Optimus LTE should also be released in Canada by Bell. Moreover, AT&T is getting ready to introduce it in the US under the name of LG Nitro HD – although it’s not clear when exactly this will happen.
