LG Optimus U1 might be the company's first Ice Cream Sandwich phone

LG Optimus U1 might be the company's first Ice Cream Sandwich phone
Now, here's what looks like possibly the first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone by LG – the LG Optimus U1. The rectangular slab of a phone leaked out in what looks like official press photos, which gives the rumor some more weight.

Sadly, further details are scant. What we do see, though, is the presence of a physical button and two capacitive buttons on the bottom of this device. It's also possible that the Optimus U1 is headed for South Korea only given that Koorean carrier U+ sounds like a perfect match for this phone.

We'd also wish to see a 720p display on the U1, just like the one on the Korea-bound LG Optimus LTE with its 4.5-inch display, but to see if that's reality or only our wishful thinking, we'd have to wait for next year when the device is rumored to launch. Hopefully, though, an official announcement will come sooner rather than later, giving us more clarity.
