LG Spectrum for Verizon leaks ahead of its January 19 launch
Putting the fact that it’ll be launching with Android Gingerbread rather than ICS to the side for the time being, the LG Spectrum packs the spec sheet of a flagship handset. It is an LTE capable device with a 4.5-inch True HD IPS display with a whopping pixel density of 329. Powering the smartphone is a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It has an 8 megapixel camera that can record video in full 1080p HD and a front-facing 1.3 megapixel shooter to assist in your video chatting needs.
Verizon didn’t intend for the spec sheet to leak out ahead of its launch, or even before CES next week when the phone will more than likely be shown off for the first time. So other than a launch date pricing is still a mystery, although it isn’t out of the realm of possibility that it will be offered at the all too familiar $299 price point that other LTE handsets have had.
Now back to the lack of Ice Cream Sandwich. There are other high-end handsets that have recently launched on Verizon, namely the Motorola DROID RAZR and the HTC Rezound that have been a hit despite their aging version of the OS. Keep that in mind as well as the fact that this handset will more than likely get a taste of ICS at some point, so Android 2.3 shouldn’t be a huge turnoff. CES is only a few days away so keep checking back for any more info we may receive regarding the LG Spectrum.
