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.

the design is very consrvative and conventional , in other words , it looks like others phones, what make a phone great is mostly the specs, so it if the specs and camera are good it will sell as hot bread.

"what makes a phone great is mostly the specs..." Err? What makes a phone great is the way it looks, performs and what it can do for you. Specs is something only geeks and mostly droid geeks are focused on, since Android unfortunately needs massive specs to run well.

First of all, it's spelled should, not shud. Secondly, A design of the phone is preference. I like the look. I like that it's less wide than GSII, I also liked the back texture. It's not as appealing, but if feels good in your hand, it's very similar to the Nitro on AT&T.
