LG Optimus LTE2 Hitting Verizon As The Spectrum 2?

Over the course of the past several weeks, we’ve been following the progress of LG’s Optimus LTE2 as it prepared for a launch on Verizon. We’ve known this handset as model VS930, and got the chance to check out the phone in full Verizon livery earlier this month, but hadn’t yet heard much in the way of detail regarding just how the phone would land at Verizon. As it presumptive release date approaches, we’re starting to fill in some of those gaps, and today learn that the LTE2 will supposedly come to Verizon as the Spectrum 2.

That’s pretty sensible, as while users in the US might equate the Spectrum with the LG Nitro HD on AT&T, both handsets are essentially the first LG Optimus LTE, as released internationally. Furthermore, the original Spectrum was model VS920, so it only follows that the VS930 would be branded as its sequel. Maybe the only odd bit is how soon the Spectrum 2 may now arrive after the first Spectrum made its debut, just back in January. Such rapid-fire follow-ups aren’t unheard of for Verizon, though, as we saw with the Droid 3 and the Droid 4 launching just seven months apart.

Once again, these rumors claim the Spectrum 2 will come equipped with only 1GB of RAM, instead of the 2GB in the international LTE2. We’ve yet to hear anything from Verizon or LG on why the hardware was pared-down like that.
