Not to be left out of the fun of the Galaxy S III news storm from yesterday, Korean manufacturer LG also showed off their rival to Samsung's flagship device yesterday, albeit to less fanfare. The new Optimus 2 LTE is the next in LG's line of high end smartphones, and brings quite a bit to the table that might convince other users to choose it over the Galaxy S III.
First there's the specs. Instead of 1GB of RAM in the S III, the Optimus 2 includes a whopping 2GB, and has a massive 2150mAh battery to match the S III's similarly large cell. On the display side, the Optimus is packing a True HD IPS display of unknown size that should be even better than the one on the LG Spectrum, although the size is still unknown. Other highlights include standard compatible wireless charging as well as the obvious inclusion of LTE, but the exact processor and clock speed are still unknown.
The software powering the phone is a presumably customized build of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which when paired with these specs should make for quite a smartphone. Currently, the Optimus 2 LTE is slated for release this month in Korea, with plans to bring it to other countries (hopefully including the US) in the future.[Android Central]
