Hey look, a phone announcement today from someone other than Samsung. It looks like LG is trying to spoil the Sammy party (and failing) by announcing their own impressive smartphone today in the all new Optimus LTE2 — complete with a “True HD” IPS display and a massive 2GB of RAM. The phone might not have the same beautiful curves as the Galaxy S III but it does have a couple of things going for it. More details after the break.
According to the official announcement by LG this phone will be coming mid-May to Korea, and elsewhere shortly after. While we don’t have all the details and specs it looks like the LTE2 will be powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, have a True HD IPS display of unknown size, but appears to be 4.3 or 4.5-inches in size.
The biggest mind blowing feature here is the inclusion of 2GB of RAM inside this beast — a first for any smartphone. Then it will also come equipped with a 2,150 mAh battery, 4G LTE, and be available on at least 5 carriers throughout Korea by the end of the month. LG briefly mentions some wireless charging features as well as an enhanced “Renal smart camera” according to translation. Check out the few pictures in the gallery below and we will be looking for more details shortly on the new Optimus LTE2 from LG. We don’t expect this to be available anytime soon in the US, if ever, but it was worth a look for the 2GB of RAM alone.
