LG Optimus True HD LTE now official, marries a 4.5" high-resolution RGB screen with German LTE
UPDATE: Other European countries like Portugal and Sweden are also on tap, and apparently the phone is also scheduled for Hong Kong and Singapore
Six months after the original introduction, the LG Optimus True HD LTE has finally arrived in its European reincarnation. German carrier subscribers will be able to get it soon for a price yet not specified.
Why "True HD" you ask? Well, LG is adamant to point out its 720p screen is done with a regular RGB matrix, not the alternative PenTile arrangement of Samsung's HD Super AMOLED displays. Not that you notice much the use of PenTile on a 1280x720, or even 1280x800 pixels screens of the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Note, but RGB is what we are used to since we were little geeks.
Unfortunately, the latest iteration of LG's Optimus LTE is still on Gingerbread, but a few beta ICS leaks are making the rounds in the forums, so hopefully LG will keep its Android 4.0 update promise for Q3.
