Description

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 has the 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 get 4.5" 720x1280 pixels display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3, 1GB RAM, 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.
