LG LU6200 Poses With 4.5″ 720p HD Screen and LTE, Revolution 2 Anyone?

In August, there was a lot of talk about a follow-up device to the LG Revolution after we first reported that one had landed on a Verizon MAP list as LG-VS920, prompting us to quickly dub it the Revolution 2.  Our sources have actually played with the device in its early stages, claiming that it has a 4.5″ HD screen, LTE and is incredibly thin.  After seeing it pass through the FCC though, we started to wonder if the device was closer to a launch than we had all imagined.

Well, after you take a look at the device pictured above and listen to the specs, you might also think that we are really close.  The LG LU6200 has made a couple of appearances over the last few days sporting that same 4.5″ IPS LCD HD screen, LTE, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, dual-cameras, and 1GB of RAM. It’s said to be available in Korea some time in October, but after seeing what we believe to be a similar device already hit up the FCC here in the states, I wouldn’t put it past LG or Big Red to pump this beast out by the holidays.

The device is also said to be running Android 2.3.5 out of the box with a guarantee that it will see Ice Cream Sandwich shortly after.  While I have never been the biggest LG phone fan, I can even admit that this phone made my heart flutter slightly.  4.5″ IPS LCD?  Hello beautiful.

    The only really bad thing Ive heard about this phone is it only has 4 gig of internal memory if that is true that is a deal breaker for me.

  • Mobrienjr85

    I was curious on what happened to the good ole LCD screens…when are we going to start seeing some LED screens also…I mean LCD screens are beautiful IMO.

  • http://twitter.com/droid1967 Droid 1967

    I like the promised icecream sandwich update.. yeah good luck on that.
    as a couple have said just do research on the G2x this will tell you everything you need to know about LG.
    also don’t think its a given boot loader is unlocked. they actually sold the g slate with an unlocked boot loader than locked it with the first update they put out.  and they refuse to answer any questions or comments regarding this on their forum.  
    The specs look great and if the reviews after release show it is running fine , than if you want it i can say the screen should be great.  But dont hold your breath on any updates or communication from this company if something goes wrong.  also check your screen for back light bleeding before leaving the store.  some of the g2x had bleeding so bad as to make the screen pretty aweful. (  most have some back light bleed but its minimal and doesnt cause a problem-2 of 3 were fine , 1 of them was so bad everything had a yellow tinge to it), also check signal and strength since that also seems to be an lg deficit.
    And if the phone has any problems in that return period do so. do not wait for promised updates as they will lie about their timeframes to get you to hold on to the phone and dont expect anything they added to be in said update. ie.. if you really like an lg camera app that came with the phone it may not be in their next update.
    etc.
    they are laying off 30% of their mobile device section so i dont really see them getting better but you never know.  we all know samsung got a bad name and look where they are, so you never know.
    But be very leery of LG and dont hold your breath for an update in anything you’d call a timely manner.

    I’d be more excited about the Vigor if the specs didn’t drop weekly. First screendropped from 4.5 to 4.3. Then 1gig DDR2 or DDR3 ram to stock ram. What next?

    • Anonymous

      Those were never the rumored specs. It has always been 4.3 inch screen and ram has stayed the same. Why don’t you wait until it is announced before you complain about the specs.

        Fair enough….
        Did anyone else read whoever was testing these said the Vigor was better than the Prime?  Saw it on DL or AC a few days ago….

    • Anonymous

      What are you talking about?  Where have you read anything about a rumored drop in ram?  

      A 4.3in. screen is also not necessarily inferior to a 4.5in. screen.  Native resolution and screen technology are more important to the overall user experience IMHO.

      • Anonymous

        That guy is clueless. He has been saying this about the specs dropping on every site. The specs haven’t changed so Idk where he is getting his info. Then again he is probably just spouting of ignorance since he clearly is clueless.

      • Anonymous

        I realize screen size doesn’t represent inferiority.  The specs a while back were 4.5, now they have changed to 4.3 as or recent.  It was also “rumored” to have 1Gig of DDR3 Ram, now there are no mentions of that anymore, which would be something they would brag about.  So, if I read the specs wrong, I apoligize.

      Too big? For midgets with big whiny mouths and wet diapers maybe. If you lessen the bezel on most of these phones you can get 4.5. Nothing to complain about, and the eye strain is lessened, so even midgets eyes shouldn’t be whining.

      • Jason Purp

        I already know about it having TouchWiz 5. TW5 isn’t as intrusive as it used to be, since the ICS experience is apparently that good.

        I’m still disappointed about it, but even if it was TouchWiz 3 or 4, I’d like it better than whatever LG has.

          How do you know this lg won’t have very minimal skin like the g2x? It seems like you have never used it you are just another to jump on the I hate every skin other than the phone that I want. Same group that said blur was shitty when they never even used the new blur. Just saying try it before you bash it. Usually lg’s skin isn’t very intrusive.

          • Jason Purp

            Let’s get real here… the skin won’t be any different than the past versions, in terms of intrusiveness.

            Also, the LG skin is honestly the only one that I hate. I LOVE MotoBlur, I like TouchWiz, and Sense is pretty nice (Sense 2.0 and 3.0). Do I hate the idea that they’re on there? Yes. But can I deal with most of them? Yes.

    EnV2 was a great predecessor to my OG Droid. I’m not counting this one out, but I need to hear “NFC” before I’ll consider it over the Nexus.

    Oooh! Yeah, this looks promising. I’ll believe it when I see it, but that screen’s pretty tempting.

    I kind of miss my enV2 from back in the day. Great keyboard. Held up to serious abuse and only really lost some varnish on the keys over the contract period. Sad to hear the build quality on their Android units hasn’t been the same.

    This over the Vigor.

    LGs dual core phones have all had A9 based CPUs.  The Vigor has an A8 CPU.  It’s OUTDATED.  This phone with it’s tech is easily going to rival the Prime.

      The Vigor may have superior software to the software on this LG phone, it may run better than the LG.

        Well if rumors are true and the vigor is better than the prime then clearly it will be better than this.

          The rumor can’t be true because isc isn’t finished yet. Unoptimized gingerbread is better than unfinished unoptimized isc.

            How do you know? You haven’t tested it and it could very well be true. Ics could be finished and maybe the vigor is better. Are you mad one phone is better than another?

          • Anonymous

            But the rumor came from a tester who has used both phones.  I could very well be wrong, but it seemed to me that the tester was talking about hardware. If that’s the case, and if you think about it, it makes sense. The prime is not using the next-gen OMAP, it’s using the 4460. That’s a standard A9.  The Vigor is using a higher performing / lower power consuming chip set with a better performing GPU. 

          • Anonymous

            Plus the nexus line never was top of the line specs so this makes sense that the vigor would be better hardware wise.

      Pretty sure the vigor uses an a9 since none of the dual cores were a8

        I Know…people love bashing these phones / processors / chip sets without any basis in fact.  I see it all over the various boards. 

    • Anonymous

      This phone has the same Qualcomm MSM8660 as the Vigor. It’s not A8 or A9.  It’s a custom microchip architecture that runs ARM instructions.  It outperforms standard A9s (including OMAP 4430/4460) by 60% while using less power at the same time  Not outdated by a long shot.

      Since you obviously didn’t take the time to do your homework before bashing HTC / Qualcomm, I did it for you.  Here you go:

            I hope both of these are good phones, it has been awhile since verizon has gotten some real “super” phones as kellex likes to call them and gives people choices. Hopefully the vigor has decent battery life or atleast maybe some of the slim extended batteries will fit in the stock vigor battery cover.

          • Anonymous

            Absolutely.  I hope both of these phones, as well as the Prime (or whatever) are great.  It would be great to see a number of high end, LTE devices come out on Verizon.

            I got the slim, extended battery from Seidio for my Incredible and it did make a difference.  It took me from barely making it through a day to making it through a solid day-and-a-half.  I’m sure there will be similar products for the Vigor. Compared to the TB though, the battery in the Vigor is bigger and the chipset uses less power so hopefully that will help…

          • Anonymous

            I hope that maybe some of the other htc slim extended batteries will fit into the stock back. Also the dual core should help with the battery life somewhat and since it will be their second lte phone on verizon hopefully they got the battery life to be a little bit better. I guess only time will tell. People expect too much with such a new technology when 3g took years to get decent battery life. As long as the phone can make it through half- three quarters of a day on 4g I will be happy.

          • Anonymous

            Right.  The real leap in power savings will be when the Krait processors, next-gen OMAP processors, and new 28nm LTE modems start appearing in phones.  Until then, we are early adopters of a great technology that is still in its infancy.

            Yeah, I;ve heard some horror stories, but I’ve also heard from some people that it’s not so bad.  It seems that some TBs are better with battery life than others.

          • Anonymous

            Yeah my batter would die in 3 hours of 4g with not touching it at all and then verizon sent me a free extended battery and now my phone easily makes it through a day. Just wish they could fit the extended size battery power into a skinnier battery.

          Okaaaaay. 

          My “option?” Do you mean opinion? My response is not opinion, it is fact.  You said the Qualcomm processor in the Vigor is an A8, and is “OUTDATED.” You made these statements as fact, not opinion.

          You are wrong about both.  I provided the correct information and a link to back it up. Again, fact and not opinion.  Hopefully, this knowledge will help keep you from perpetuating the spread of misinformation.

            actually, the company with the beat phones on the market would be HTC…samsung phones are crap, but this is just my opinion, you may or may not agree with me…samsung had 3 chances from us, far as we’re concerned, but when a phone company sends out an update to fix something that was wrong with the phone at release(GPS), and it ends up breaking a different feature(the emergency call button) and then they send out another update to fix that and end up breaking a different feature(memory card docking with the computer) and have the gall to tell you it can still be used as a phone so its not broken…there’s a problem

      Except I’d put money on it being Bing’d.

      I’m happy with my Bionic, it just works, it’s fast, and I haven’t had any of the nightmarish issues that others have had. The screen is NO BIG DEAL, just a bunch of whiners that are used to the blown out badly contrasted colors of SAMOLED. Battery life is phenominal and performance is great. If this phone is the Revo2, great, it won’t be competitive mainly because not that long ago the original Revo came out, and no one really bought it, seeing as it costs as much as its counterparts from other brands on VZW, Bing, and its lackluster appeal, its a nice phone but it brings nothing special to the game. This might change, but this device will I bet, still have Bing.

       Don’t get it either. a 4.5 inch screen with IPS screen?? Awesome. Don’t care for LG at all, but still. If Motorola came out with a thin 4.5 to 5 inch screen IPS device with the rest being impressive specs, it would sell like crazy and be serious competition for a Crapple device.
