The LG Optimus LTE2 is the first smartphone sporting 2GB of RAM. It has already been launched in South Korea, but the manufacturer does not mention whether the phone will be globally launched or its geography will be limited to this market only. However, the phone has been spotted at the Global Certification Forum hinting at Verizon’s the exclusive carrier of the device.
The phone appeared at the GCF with the model number VS930. This is an accepted practice for Big Red because the earlier LG devices had similar model numbers — VS910 for the Revolution and VS920 for the Spectrum.
Unfortunately, the GCF doesn’t show whether the LG Optimus LTE2 will support LTE or CDMA, but it lets us assume the phone might come with global roaming functionality.
Well, Verizon has not announced the phone officially but the leaked info confirms the biggest US carrier won’t miss its chance to launch it. On the other hand, the carrier is busy with bringing the Samsung Galaxy S III to its consumers, the launch date of which is supposed to be early June. Both handsets were announced almost at the same time, and they made a huge stir. But we must admit the Galaxy S III is the most powerful Android smartphone, though the LG Optimus LTE2 has many common lineaments with it.
The latter comes with a 4.7-inch True HD-IPS LCD touchscreen with 720×1280 pixel resolution and 312ppi pixel density, a dual-core Qualcomm’s Krait processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM (!), microSD card support, an 8MP camera with 1080p video recording capability, a 1.3MP frontal camera, a 2150mAh battery, Dolby mobile sound enhancement, and it runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Optimus 3.0 UI.
On the whole, the South Korean market offers only the black variant but the white paint job has been leaked too. The manufacturer has yet not announced this model, and PocketDroid doesn’t claim it’s the LTE2 but we tend to think we are rather dealing with the white LG Optimus LTE2 than the LG Optimus L7, because both handsets look similar.
