LG Spectrum 2 For Verizon Appears Early On Best Buy Site


Back in the long-long-ago (OK, it was just July) we heard that Verizon was looking to bring LG’s Optimus LTE2 to its subscribers as the Spectrum 2. At the time, the LTE2 was sounding like a pretty high-end offering, being one of the first smartphones to come equipped with 2GB of RAM, but a lot’s happened since. Did Verizon just forget about the Spectrum 2? We still haven’t received any confirmation from the carrier itself, but the smartphone just managed to pop-up in Best Buy’s system, where it looks like it could be preparing to launch.

We had previously seen the Spectrum 2 appear on a Verizon roadmap, where it was slated to arrive in October. That could still be what Verizon’s planning, and Best Buy just jumped the gun a little with its product page for the phone.

While Best Buy provides a few specs for the handset, it makes no mention of the phone’s RAM, which had been the focus of some uncertainty. While LTE2 has 2GB, a leaked service manual for the Spectrum 2 suggested that Verizon might get a scaled-back version with only 1GB. We’ll just have to wait a little longer to learn what comes of that.

The Spectrum 2 runs a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4, has a 4.7-inch 720p display, an eight-megapixel main camera with 1.3MP front-facer, and supports microSD expansion.
