LG Optimus LTE confirmed for Canada: exclusive on Bell, $629 off-contract

LG Optimus LTE confirmed for Canada: exclusive on Bell, $629 off-contract
The impressive LG Optimus LTE first launched in Korea with the prospect of a launch in North America uncertain. Now, we're finally sure that it's arriving, but the first country to get it will be Canada and carrier Bell will have the exclusive rights to sell the 4.5-inch LTE smartphone initially. The off-contract price stands at 629 Canadian dollars, but a subsidy will also probably take place.

So what's the LG Optimus LTE about? The handset finally brings LG on par with other high-end offerings like the Samsung Galaxy S II from rivals like Samsung. 

The biggest focus of course falls on the display and the whopping resolution of 720x1280 pixels definitely makes a difference. Otherwise, the display is an IPS LCD one. 

Under the hood, the Optimus LTE packs a serious punch – a dual-core 1.5GHz processor paired with 1GB of RAM. On the back, there's an 8-megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p footage. Now, hopefully all this means that the handset will also arrive stateside and the sooner the better.

"The offering finally brings LG on par". Wdf phonearena this phone is already live in Asia. And this phone blows the sgs2 away. The LG LTE is a direct competitor with the galaxy nexus, RAZR, and Rezound. Except the LG has a bigger HD u IPS RGBy screen, bigger battery, and both HSPA+ and LTE.

This phone has LTE & HSPA+... Sprint uses WiMAX for it's 4G data and is not capable of LTE. I CAN GUARANTEE THAT SPRINT WILL NOT RECEIVE THIS DEVICE.
