LG Unveils ‘Optimus LTE Tag’ Capable Of Reading LG Tag+ Stickers
LG already unveiled the Optimus VU five-inch Android phone ahead of MWC and it looks like the South Korean manufacturer just can’t stop. The LG Optimus LTE Tag as well as the Tag+ NFC sticker offering have been announced.
The LG Optimus LTE Tag packs a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, 4.3-inch WVGA display, five-megapixel main camera with LED flash, 1.3-megapixel webcam, 16GB internal storage and Android 2.3 Gingerbread on-board, plus, of course NFC.
The Near Filed Communication chip inside the phone takes advantage of LG’s Tag+ offering which can be useful to trigger special preset modes on the phone (like in the image above where reading the code puts the device in a “car mode”). Additionally, stickers can be placed anywhere around you so that reading a tag before going to sleep would activate bedside mode (or even airplane mode), or at the office as well as outdoors (as they seem to be water-resistant).
We’re expecting the Optimus LTE Tag, as well as the Tag+ system, to be showed off extensively at LG’s booth next week in Barcelona.
