The original LG Spectrum made a lot of headlines at CES 2012, even though we fell out of love with it quick during our review. Now LG has brought a US variant of their Korean Optimus LTE II as a follow-up being dubbed the LG Spectrum 2 to Verizon. The device may not be the Optimus G that has lots of us drooling, but it packs a 4.7-inch AH-IPS display, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 8-megapixels in the back shooter and 16GB of storage along with wireless charging support if you buy the extra pad.
Sadly the good news end there. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and judging by our previous LG reviews, it may not be as wonderful as the spec sheet pushes it to be. It’ll arrive at Verizon retail stores in the next few weeks for $100 after a two-year contract, so that does make the device a bit compelling.
