LG Spectrum pairs a 4.5" True HD IPS screen with Verizon's LTE network and ESPN HD video partnership
The 4.5" True HD IPS goodness of the LG Spectrum is coming to Verizon with LTE connectivity, and ready to rumble. The latest flagship of the company shares specs with the Optimus LTE and the LG Nitro HD for AT&T, mainly since it is the same phone, but with Verizon's 4G bands.

That means we will get 4.5" 720x1280 pixels display with regular RGB stripe matrix, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3, 1GB RAM, 4GB of internal memory plus 16GB microSD card, HDMI-out via the MHL port, and 8MP camera with 1080p video recording. Unfortunately, it will come with Andorid 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box, until it gets upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. 

To make a good use of that True HD 4.5-incher, LG has partnered exclusively with ESPN for delivering HD video content on the phone. The ScoreCenter app will be your gateway to ESPN sporting events on the LG Spectrum, coming down at the cool 720p definition with the help of Verizon's LTE speeds.

The leaked January 19 date for the LG Spectrum's launch was confirmed, and the $199.99 price is soothing in comparison with the recent LTE smartphone launches on Verizon .
