We only first heard of the LG Marquee earlier this month, after a Radio Shack video gave away its existence with a brief cameo. It sure looked like an Optimus Black, and it didn’t take long before we were able to match the Black’s model number to the Marquee. Just days later all of this spanning a mere week Sprint formally announced the smartphone with a planned October 2 launch. With under a week to go, Sprint has uploaded an overview of the phone to YouTube, giving you one last preview before it hits retail.
After going over the Marquee’s hardware layout, detailing the placement of all buttons and ports, Sprint touches on what you can accomplish with the handset’s software. Ultimately, there’s nothing to that end that’s unique to the Marquee, but Sprint nevertheless brings up some interesting points worth considering, like how the higher-than-average 2-megapixel front-facing camera makes the phone well-suited for video chat using an app such as Qik.
Because this is a render, we don’t get to appreciate how great the four-inch IPS NOVA display is supposed to look; you’ll just have to wait until Sunday in order to check it out for yourself.
