LG announces two high-end Android powered smartphones
LG's camp may have been quiet on the high-end Android front, but they're not sitting around any longer and let the competition get the best of them. After hearing about the peppy specs with the LG LU2300 not too long ago, LG has gone out and officially announced it and another premier Android offering with the LG KU9500/SU950 in the hopes of capturing some interest. Both devices are packing some serious heat under the hood as they feature a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.5” WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, Dolby mobile surround sound, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 5-megapixel camera. On the software side of things, “LG Air Sync” will enable uses to share content with a PC or web server wirelessly while “Scan Search” is an augmented reality app that'll be preloaded on the handsets. Now the major difference between the two is that the LG SU2300 will offer a QWERTY keyboard, built-on trackpad, and will be running Android 1.6 at first – but it's expected to receive an update to Android 2.1 some time between July and August. Conversely, the LG SU950/KU9500 will simply be your traditional looking candybar looking handset with Android 2.1 from the onset. Aside from be initially available through KT and SK Telecom in Korea, it's unknown if LG plans to make the handsets available elsewhere.
