Last July, it sure looked like the LG Spectrum 2
was coming to Verizon. The unannounced device appeared on Big Red's Cellebrite system
and a launch appeared imminent. Instead, nothing ever happened. With the recent updating of the OG LG Spectrum to Android 4.0
, it was quite a coincidence that the sequel found itself on Best Buy's website on Tuesday. The phone was being sold for Verizon's network unsubsidized at $649.99
although it was listed as being sold out.
Just in case you've forgotten, the LG Spectrum 2 carries a 4.7 inch LCD display with resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to an outstanding pixel density of density of 312ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor. An Adreno 225 GPU crunches graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board and there is 16GB of native storage that can be expanded using a microSD card. An 8MP camera is on back while a 1.3MP shooter is up front taking self-portraits and engaging in video chat. Android 4.0.4 is installed.
Now that Best Bay has somewhat outed the LG Spectrum 2, perhaps this time a launch really will be imminent
. In fact, the date on the LG Spectrum 2 in the picture seen on Best Buy's site reads November 3rd. Perhaps that will be the launch date for the device.
