LG promotes its high end LU6200 with 4.5 inch 720p display, 1.5GHz dual core CPU and digital TV player
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.

Too many capabilities for an unproven track record that LG is sporting these days... I am a fan of LG, they hit it big here in the USA with their ENVY line....then they look like they just wet on vacation after that. Think of where they would be today if the kept pouring the profits from the ENVY series back into research and design. Who knows, it may do great and work out really well, then again it may catch fire in your pocket! Like I said, looks like too much techno in one package, just my opinion.

Never heard of a AH-IPS display or a Scorpion CPU. Can someone please compare them to something more familiar? Are they LG's own products? Also, 4GB's of ram doesn't go with all the high-end specs the phone has.

The Scorpion is a qualcomm snapdragon s3 processor and the HD AH-IPS is LG product its in the same class as samsung super amoled HD, also it is stated to use the same amount of energy consumption on bright and dark images whereas amoled consumption varies. Its 1GB ram and 4gb internal storage. The internal storage is rather low especially for a high end device and !gb ram is slowly becoming industry standard for high end devices. We all would love to see 2GB ram on a device like this. HOPE this helps you.

4gb of ram should be internal memory, which means you can still add a memory card on to it. with any luck its 64mb ready. Im not the biggest fan of snapdragons, but for the regular user, those specs will make the phone future proof for a good while.

Dude i really hope its early in the morning and im reading your post wrong. I remember seeing your name alot and its not tied to a memory of an idiot so im just wondering why you worded some things as you did "4gb of ram should be internal memory" Its 1GB of RAM, 4GB Internal Memory. People get confused enough as is. Verbing it so may start to let people think they can store photos and apps on there RAM. And im going to take a stab at you ment 64GB card ready..?

If the are planning for a U.S release, they shouldn't wait too long, by the end of the year, it could be considered "out-dated"

If Apple is getting their screens from LG now, then the iPhone 5 is going to be 4.5" 720p display! Probably all the specs are the same as this phone.

S3 and Adreno GPU? Damn, that makes me slightly less excited for this phone. That means it'll be beaten benchmark-wise even by it's older cousin the Thrill. I assume the switch to an asynchronous CPU was for battery life, but still, S3 is not quite up to the competition.

Adreno 220 in these LG has 2x power of Tegra2.
