LG Spectrum Announced at CES 2012
LG’s CES 2012 conference just took place and there were quite a few announcements, but of those announcements, the LG Spectrum was one of the announcements which stood out for us. This is the first device that will feature LG’s brand new IPS display (which utilizes RGB) which LG claim’s will be better than Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology by a fair amount. What’s also quite exciting is that this is a 4G LTE device (which will be a Verizon Exclusive for now), and no date for an international release as of yet. Spec’s wise, we’re quite excited about the power of the phone:
- Processor – Qualcomm 1.5GHz Dual-core processor
- Screen – 4.5-inch IPS Display, with 1280 x 720 resolution (HD Screen!)
- Camera – 8 megapixel back camera with LED Flash and 1080p video recording capabilities
- Front Camera – 1.3 megapixel
- OS – Android Gingerbread (upgradeable to ICS in near future)
It’s quite an impressive phone (not mind shattering but impressive either way). We think it has a 326 PPI density, but we’ll have to confirm that as of yet. Verizon is also getting an exclusive feature with ESPN ScoreCenter content in HD, as well as a SmartMovie HD app that lets you create and edit videos directly on the phone on the go. That could be useful, although we haven’t ever been impressed with ESPN ScoreCenter before, hopefully we get some fresh new designs and content that will make us change our mind. As for cost, this bad boy will cost you $200 on Verizon (with a 2 year contract minimum) which isn’t bad for what you’re getting. We just wish it came preloaded with ICS. As for release date, should be very soon so stay tuned.
