LG Spectrum Launching January 19 on Verizon with 1.5GHz Dual-core Processor, 4.5″ HD Display, 4G LTE, and Exclusive HD Content

lg spectrum official1

The LG Spectrum has long been rumored as the “Revolution 2,” but today, it is now officially the Spectrum and is headed to Verizon Wireless on January 19. Pricing has not been uncovered, but you can imagine that it will range from $249 – $299 on 2-year contract and anywhere between $569 and $649 at full retail. The Spectrum is easily LG’s best VZW phone to date with its 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity and massive 4.5″ HD display at 329ppi. And speaking of its HD screen, Verizon is making sure that you know it has a Real Stripe pixel arrangement and is not PenTile.

Specs aside, the Spectrum will also launch with access to exclusive HD ESPN Scorecenter content and the Netflix HD that is currently only found on the RAZR. A special set of HD video editing tools will be included as well.

We had been wondering what Big Red’s plan for CES was and I’d say this phone will likely be it (maybe the DROID 4 too). The full round-up is after the break including the entire spec list.  

A look at the specs:

  • 4.5″ True HD IPS display, protected by Gorilla Glass
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor
  • 8MP rear camera, shoots 1080p video
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 4GB of on-board storage, 16GB micro SD card pre-installed
  • 4G LTE
  • Mobile hotspot shares up to 10 connections
  • Android 2.3
  • 1830mAh battery (optional 3000mAh extended battery available at launch)
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Swype
  • Dimensions:  5.33″ x 2.71″ x .41″
  • Weight: 4.99 oz.

Full list and release date:


And maybe this is just me, but is Google Maps missing from the spec list? They couldn’t revive Bing could they?

Overall though, this is a pretty impressive device from LG and Verizon. I’ve been a downer on LG for a number of years now, but this has definitely caught my eye, especially with that 4.5″ HD display. Bring it to us at CES, please.

Cheers ___!

    I don’t know why anyone would be screaming over this. It’s like a poorly built, less pixel per inch version of the HTC Rezound. I have a Rezound myself, and that screen is great. I got my dad the Galaxy Nexus, and the first few days when I set it up for him, I noticed the great screen on there, but sometimes there are bugs with weird colors and a blueish hue to the white, that my Rezound doesn’t have. Besides, NO ONE(except die hard LG nerds) will go for this. There is the Rezound, with great build quality, great usability of Sense UI for first timers, and great camera, and gorgeous screen. Then there is the G-NEX with Awesome AMOLED, ICS, Decent camera, and FAST, and slim. So, if you are a hardware guy, there is the Rezound. Software guy, the G-Nex, and RAZR, for in between. This is like the guy no one likes.

      uh, it has same screen res, but w/ bigger screen than rezound.  couple that w/ fact it’s an oz. lighter.  ppi is slightly behind rezound but better than gnex and razr.  i was bout to buy rezound and still may, but this is intriguing.  sounds like you’re trying to defend your purchase good sir.

    Good looking phone, but not an LG guy. Shame on manufacturers for still pushing gingerbread phones out when source for ICS has already been released. I get the feeling that there will still be many more 2.3 phones being released in 2012.

    You know. Reading news of this handset it finally dawned on me. Android handset manufacturers are moving so fast and are all competing with each other at such a breakneck pace, that I don’t think they even consider what Apple is doing anymore. Apple moves so slow that they’re really not a part of the competition to consider.

    The current GALAXY NEXUS on Verizon is the BEST SMARTPHONE on the market the next 8months period. .

      I returned my Galaxy Nexus for a Razr. Way to many issues with the Nexus, mainly readio issues.
