The LG VS930

Photographs taken of the Verizon variant of the LG Optimus LTE II shows the front, back and the battery for the device, which is known in the U.S. as the LG VS930 for now. This is the successor to the LG Spectrum, which is Big Red's version of the original Optimus LTE. 

Speculation is that the phone will be equipped with a 4.7 inch True HD IPS screen, which means instead of the oft-criticized PenTile display, the display uses a regular RGB matrix. The rest of the specs look quite enticing as well, including 8-megapixel camera, the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 S4 processor under the hood, NFC support and Android 4.0.4 installed. There is 16GB of native storage and Global radio support (GSM/UMTS/CDMA/LTE). 
In Korea, the LG Optimus LTE 2 comes with 2GB of RAM which is something that LG might want to seriously consider for this model,especially since the Samsung Galaxy S III already has 2GB of RAM. However, Verizon's version is expected to feature only 1GB of RAM.

We have no word when we might see the device get launched, nor do we have any idea on pricing. The $99 on-contract pricing announced Tuesday for the loaded Motorola ATRIX HD has to be considered by any carrier looking to remain competitive in this area of the market, so it will be interesting to see where Verizon prices this. We believe it should be affordable to be successful.

With that new Optimus UI, this phone could be a real winner. But I've just gotta ask...what's going on with the horrid capacitive buttons? What are these manufacturers so afraid of?

If the pricing exceeds $200 I don't think LG nor Verizon are going to be making much money off of this phone. Looks nice though, perhaps it'll bring some significant competition to the beast that is the SGS3.

Looks like a touch screen TV remote, too boxey and sharp corners won't make it comfortable to hold. Oh and nice jab Alan about the pentile display, ill take super amoled any day.

Put 2 GB of Ram in that and advertise it well and it'll be a real winner
