LG holding launch event on December 1st, LG Nitro to be unleashed?
LG is sending out invitations for a major launch event they will be holding on Thursday, December 1st. While the invitation is short on details, the image file contained the name “LG Nitro”, which ssuggests we’ll be seeing the LG Nitro HD get unveiled next week.

The Nitro HD is thought to be an AT&T variant of the Optimus LTE, which is already available in Korea. The Nitro HD has starred in a couple blurry-cam shots. It will be a dual-core handset shipping with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and the now-standard 1GB of RAM. It is rumored to be coming with a 4.5 inch 720p display, which would make it the first second phone in the U.S. to beat the pixel density of Apple’s iPhone 4/4S display, the first being the HTC Rezound.

It is expected to be yet another LTE phone for AT&T, although its generous specs and fast HSDPA+ radio should help it appeal to customers in a wide range of markets, not just the lucky ones that dwell within AT&T’s nascent LTE network.

Without an announcement the name could change, and obviously pricing is not yet available, although it seems like a good bet that these details will be revealed in another 9 days. Anyone on AT&T interested in picking one of these up?

The Rezound has a 720p display on a 4.3inch screen, so wouldn't it be the second?

The Rezound was the first in the U.S. The Optimus LTE released in Korea first.

Heck Yes. Looks amazing. I'm all about the screen on a phone. Bout time someone put out a better display than the iPhone, ha, especially since LG had been making their screens anyway.

\".....shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread\". Now PhoneArena can list this as a con in it\'s review for it, not before ICS became public to developers.

ICS has been available for days. It takes more time than that to smooth out the bumps of a software for a phone.

You\'re right, but the problem with LG phones is there terrible support after buying the phone itself. If it was HTC or Samsung that wouldn\'t be much of a problem.

Besides the usual hardware, LG says this display is the best in the market. I guess I have to see it formyself. I hope its cheap,

Should be the 3rd LTE 4G AT&T phone - LG needs to produce better phones - their rep has been taken a hit in recent months.
