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.
