LG Spectrum pairs a 4.5" True HD IPS screen with Verizon's LTE network and ESPN HD video partnership

LG Spectrum pairs a 4.5
The 4.5" True HD IPS goodness of the LG Spectrum is coming to Verizon with LTE connectivity, and ready to rumble. The latest flagship of the company shares specs with the Optimus LTE and the LG Nitro HD for AT&T, mainly since it is the same phone, but with Verizon's 4G bands.

That means we will get 4.5" 720x1280 pixels display with regular RGB stripe matrix, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3, 1GB RAM, 4GB of internal memory plus 16GB microSD card, HDMI-out via the MHL port, and 8MP camera with 1080p video recording. Unfortunately, it will come with Andorid 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box, until it gets upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

To make a good use of that True HD 4.5-incher, LG has partnered exclusively with ESPN for delivering HD video content on the phone. The ScoreCenter app will be your gateway to ESPN sporting events on the LG Spectrum, coming down at the cool 720p definition with the help of Verizon's LTE speeds.

The leaked January 19 date for the LG Spectrum's launch was confirmed, and the $199.99 price is soothing in comparison with the recent LTE smartphone launches on Verizon .

Engadget is reporting that it'll come out on the 19th for $200 and at that price point this is a pretty good phone.

I really wish they had a good selection of LTE phones with a 4" screen. My girlfriend just upgraded from her Droid Pro to a Nexus and it's a little too big for her but the iPhone is too small. She's probably sticking with the Nexus but if they had a version with a 4" screen she would be in heaven!

I love how they kept the price to $199.99. Highest spec phone on their network and it's not the most expensive either.

it may be the highest spec but the fact of LG's UI doesnt help. when it upgrades to 4.0 it should absolutely excellent. but yes the $199.99 price tag makes it an excellent choice over ruling phones like the droid 3 and others

it was probably a typo due to the fact s4's have not been released yet. if the s4 is making its debut that would be nice but since its nothing but Verizon's version of the nitro i doubt it.

WRONG! the best GPU you can get right now in a Mobile SoC is the PowerVR SGX543(MP2) if it's not that it's either the Arm Mali used with Exynos or maybe the updated GeForce in Nvidia's Tegra III Kal-El.

i totally missed the S4 up there. if that's true then this will actually be a really good device purely because of how much more efficient it will be on the battery.
