LG promotes its high end LU6200 with 4.5 inch 720p display, 1.5GHz dual core CPU and digital TV
Who says that LG can't put some high specs on a smartphone? The LG LU6200 is about as high-spec'd as they come these days, but so far is set to make an appearance only in LG's backyard. LG has already put up a teaser page for the device with pre-orders starting on September 25th. After you read through the specs, you will be hoping that this device makes it to the States-and who knows, perhaps it will. But for right now, LG has it scheduled for Korean release only.

The LG LU6200 has a 4.5 inch AH-IPS display with resolution of 720p and is driven by a 1.5GHz Scorpion dual-core CPU, along with an Adreno 220 GPU. 1GB of RAM is aboard as is 4GB of internal storage. On back is an 8MP camera with AF and on front is a 1.3MP shooter. The phone has U+LTE connectivity which supports theoretical download speeds of 75Mbps. Keeping the device running is an 1,830mAh battery and Android 2.3 is installed. Not only is there NFC support, but digital radio and television broadcasts can also be received by the handset.

Certainly it would seem that the LG LU6200 would be able to compete with any of the high-end Android models in the States and even those expected to come to market next month. It would be interesting to see if this model could gain some much-needed traction for LG in the U.S. market. As we reported, the company has had 5 consecutive quarters of losses and is laying off marketing personnel in its mobile division. A phone like this could generate some much needed money for LG in the States.
