LG Optimus LTE2 to challenge the SGS III and One X
| by Roydon Cerejo |
We heard about LG’s plan to launch an LTE Android smartphone, called the Optimus LTE2 at the beginning of this month, but they didn’t really reveal too much information about it, other than the fact that it will have 2GB of RAM and the screen will be an IPS display. Now that the phone is about to launch, we have all the missing pieces of the puzzle and it seems like a real contender to take on the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC One X. The Optimus LTE2 will ship this week in South Korea for round $800 and should soon be available internationally, as well. Starting off with the design and build - unlike the plastic overalls of the Galaxy S III, the Optimus LTE2 is made up of glass and metal. It comes with a TrueHD IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 and will measure about 8.9mm in thickness, while weighing 145g. The phone will also support wireless charging through an optional charging pad and battery cover.
The Optimus LTE2
Coming to core components, the phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s S4 MSM8960 chipset featuring a dual-core Krait processor clocked at 1.5GHz. The graphics chip will be a Adreno 225 and the SoC will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM. The phone will launch with Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich, along with LG’s own skin running on top. The phone will also feature an 8MP camera with an LED flash, along with a front-facing 1.3MP camera. Other connectivity features have also been brought to light, which include NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, USB 2.0, MHL, etc.
The phone also comes with a pretty chunky battery of 2150mAh, which should give you a decent battery life. Let’s wait and see how it stacks up against Samsung’s and HTC’s offerings.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
