LG Announces The Optimus LTE, Reveals LTE And 720p Screen For Korea – Verizon’s Revolution 2?


LG today officially announced the Optimus LTE for the Korean market, a 4.5-inch HD phone that is sure to get you jealous. The phone sports Android 2.3 with a “True HD IPS” display, at 1280×720 resolution (720p) with a 322 pixels per inch count. When in comparison to the competition, this falls just a few pixels short of the iPhone’s retina display – the human eye wouldn’t and couldn’t be able tell the difference.

Additionally the Optimus LTE has 1GB of RAM, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (most likely Snapdragon) with a 1830 mAh battery and a weight of 135 grams. On the backside it contains an 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash, and a 1.3MP front facing camera. If that wasn’t enough, the device also comes with HDMI and DLNA capabilities. Unfortunately, 4GB of internal storage (with less being accessible) sits on the inside of the phone, however it does come preloaded with a 16GB microSD card.

Now we all know that Verizon is planning to launch the Revolution 2, could this be it? A leaked Verizon roadmap pointed to a October 20 launch date and we have already seen the device pass through the FCC.

However, the real question is – will this be “Bing”ed out?

SEOUL, Oct. 4, 2011 – LG Electronics (LG) today announced the Korean market launch of LG Optimus LTE, the first mobile device in the country to offer 4G connectivity with the highest resolution IPS display available on a smartphone. Developed in close collaboration with sister company LG Display, Optimus LTE features a striking 4.5–inch “True HD IPS” display which offers advanced resolution, brightness and clarity and shows colors in their most natural tones, as they were meant to be seen.

Optimus LTE also delivers enhanced performance with 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, running on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS platform. With a large 1,830 mAh battery, Optimus LTE is perfectly suited for multimedia usage. In addition, the device enables content sharing seamlessly through HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance).

“LG Optimus LTE is the first smartphone in Korea to offer vivid and clear HD content on a 4G network,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our goal is to be a leading player in LTE devices by continuously offering best-in-class products based on our LTE patents and know-how.”

According to a recent report by Jefferies & Company, LG was listed as the global leader in LTE patents with ownership of 23 percent of approximately 1,400 LTE patents filed worldwide, with a financial value of almost USD 8 billion. LG demonstrated the world’s first LTE technology in 2007 and developed the world’s first LTE modem chipset in 2008. LG introduced the world’s fastest LTE technology in 2010 and conducted the world’s first video phone call on a LTE network in 2011. LG’s first LTE smartphone, RevolutionTM, was launched in the US earlier this year.

Availability of Optimus LTE in markets outside of Korea has not yet been determined.

    I have used LG Rev 1 and it is the best phone I have ever seen. If this comes to VZW, I will have to decide between Prime and Rev2….. I want both 🙂 🙂

    Unrelated but I need help!!!
    Apps from SD won’t installWhen I first got the phone APK’s installed just fine.  I have several apps I got from my old Droid 1 and for whatever reason the apk will not install.  I select it from ext-SD and attempt to install but the install button is inactive, only the cancel button is active. I have “unknown sources” checked and “usb debugging” checked and “allow mock locations” check but to no avail. Any suggestions or is this a OS thing?

  • Mr.joe

    Wow DL is DEAD.

    Everyone must be watching the Apple event… 

    What a bunch of iSheep =/

    • iSheep, yeah real mature.

      • Mr.joe

        What would you rather I say?

        People who have a fancy for Apple Products
        Fans of Apple
        People who like the iPhone


        It’s iSheep around these parts.  Didn’t you get the call from your herder Tim Cook?

    • Mctypething

      u mad bro?

      • Mr.joe

        Mad about what?

        Stating a fact that DL isn’t active like it usually is?  That at this time Apple is giving a press conference at this time?   I added 1 and 1 together and got 2.  As a concerned DL participant I have the right to express concern at time of danger.  

        This is one of those times.

        • Dan

          They will be back after the disappointment sets in 🙂

          • Mr.joe

            They should have never left Dan.  I thought we were a family here.  A family of Android fanatics.  I feel so betrayed =*(

          • EC8CH

            they’ll stop off at etrade first and dump some of their *pple stock 😛

            boohoo no i*hone5 ;-(

        • Mctypething

          At this time I asked if you were mad at this time.

          • Mr.joe

            Yes.  I feel so betrayed Mctyething.  I thought DL was stronger then this.  I thought that… we would be able to stand up against Apple.  But even the strongest of Android fans bow down to them when conferences like this come up.

            Where did all the android fans go?  I’ve never felt so alone before.  

            Thanks Dan for keeping Android alive in our darkest of hours. 

          • Paper-Cut

            Betrayed? It’s the middle of the day, in the middle of the week. People are at work and whatnot. You seem really immature if you think that you’ve been “betrayed” by any Android fans who looked into Apple’s announcement today. It’s called competition, not the enemy.

          • Mr.joe

            I think that’s really mean to say Paper-cut.  I’m very vulnerable right now.

          • Mctypething_Jr.

            Daddy, why do you have to drink and cause troubles on the internets so much?

    My verizon rep was in yesterday and told me that anything not “Droid” branded is subject to Bing so I would guess that the Revolution 2 will also be Binged.

    • Dan

      It’s up in the air, Xperia Play and a few others weren”t Bing’ed. Grant it a simple root and ROM fixes the problem nonetheless 

      • Mr.joe

        There’s actually a lot of non Droid phones on vzw that aren’t Binging out.  I can only think of like 4 that are.

    • Mr.joe

      Droid hd will top them all

  • I would like to show my admiration for your generosity giving support to those people who really want help on that content. Your very own dedication to getting the message around became really invaluable and have surely permitted men and women just like me to arrive at their pursuits. This invaluable publication denotes a lot to me and a whole lot more to my peers. Thanks a ton; from each one of us.

  • Still doesn’t best the Nexus. 

    • Jdm4292

      Do we even have any real information on the nexus? Besides the bt/wifi certs and the celebrite documentation? Any “Real” specs? I mean kellen hinted that the rumors may be true, but we need real information… before I die of old age waiting like I did when they said the Galaxy s2 wasnt coming to verizon : (

      • I don’t believe we have anything “confirmed” yet, but the rumors that have circulated have been traced to many different sources and many of them can be “safely” assumed to be true including (AFAIK):

        1.5ghz dual core (exact chip still up in the air)
        4.65″ screen with on screen buttons
        1 GB RAM
        8 MP back camera / 2 MP front camera

          You know what they say about assuming…
          Makes an ass out of you and I.

          • Actually I believe it’s an ass out of u and me. 😉
