LG’s 2GB RAM Optimus LTE2 Android May Be Getting Ready For Verizon


LG’s latest Android, the Optimus LTE2 with its hefty 2GB of RAM, launched in South Korea earlier this month. We’re sure that many of you have been wondering what that sort of extra memory would mean for your own Android experience, and those of us in the West may soon be getting just such an opportunity to check-out the phone firsthand. Some new documentation reveals LG’s works on its model VS930, which very well may be the LTE2 for Verizon.

The VS930 appears in a new GCF listing, which would suggest plans for service in Europe, so where do we get Verizon from? Well, the “VS” in the model number is what LG uses to identify its phones destined for Verizon, but that just raises more questions. Specifically, if this is a Verizon model, then why does the GCF entry show a host of GSM and UMTS frequencies that reflect European networks? As the theory goes, Verizon seems to be gung-ho with global roaming for its new phones, so we’d see certification on just these kind of bands; the GCF, then, wouldn’t concern itself with testing on the CDMA and LTE frequencies that the phone would only use domestically.

It’s an intriguing proposition, but there’s still not much directly linking the VS930 to the LTE2, and it could conceivably be another model from the manufacturer. It really would be nice to see the phone available in other markets, though, so we’ll keep our optimism up.
