LG has made its Optimus LTE 2 smartphone available in its native South Korea. The superphone was announced earlier this month, and LG has kept its promise of having it in stores before the end of May.
LG didn’t give us many details about the Optimus LTE 2′s specs back when it first unveiled it, but thankfully more information is available now. The Optimus LTE 2 comes with a 4.7-inch ‘True HD’ (a.k.a. not PenTile) touchscreen, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2 GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear camera, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, all possible connectivity options for this day and age, and a 2,150 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 with LG’s new Optimus UI 3.0 on top.
The LG Optimus LTE 2 can be yours (if you’re in South Korea, that is) for 935,000 won. That’s about $802 or €630, if you take today’s exchange rates into account.
The Optimus LTE 2 is meant to follow in the footsteps of the original Optimus LTE, which managed to be sold in more than 1 million units in South Korea alone. LG clearly hopes that the new device will go even past that number. Of course, the LG smartphone will face some tough competition from the Pantech Vega Racer 2 and the Samsung Galaxy S III, so we’ll see how this all pans out.
