It was only a few days ago that we saw the first images of the LG Spectrum, spiritual successor to the LG Revolution — among the premiere batch of Verizon’s 4G LTE handsets — but those tiny photos really didn’t do the phone justice. Luckily we’ve gotten a set of higher quality shots, along with a full rundown of the specs:
– Dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3
– Android Gingerbread 2.3
– 10.6 millimeters thick
– 4.5-inch, 1280×720 IPS LCD
– 1GB RAM, 4GB storage plus 16GB microSD
– Eight-megapixel, 1080p rear camera; 1.3-megapixel front-facing
– Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n
– HDMI, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct
– 1830mAh battery
– Simultaneous voice and LTE data
– 10-device LTE hotspot
All-in-all pretty much what we expected: a handset very similar to the Nitro HD on AT&T, which itself is an American port of LG’s Optimus LTE from its home country of South Korea.
Despite the screen here reading February 14th of next year — a date close to Mobile World Congress — we’d be surprised if Spectrum didn’t launch before the end of the year into Verizon’s already-impressive lineup of high-end devices; after all, no one is buying Revolutions in the land of Nexus, RAZR, Rezound, and Droid 4.
