Verizon Branded LG Optimus LTE2 Pictured, Possible Launch in Two Days?

Verizon Branded LG Optimus LTE2 Pictured, Possible Launch in Two Days?
News from Droid Life:

Here is the LG VS930. Previously known to most as the Optimus LTE2, we can now rest assured that LG will not bring a dedicated home button to Big Red. According to Engadget’s source, we can expect the following specs from this device:

  • Android 4.0.4
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 SoC
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 4.7-inch “True HD IPS” display (1280 x 720 pixels)
  • 16GB of built-in storage
  • Global radio support (GSM/UMTS/CDMA/LTE)
  • NFC (it comes with programmable tags)
  • 8MP camera

Along with the above picture and detailed specifications, a leaked PDF shows that this device could launch as early as July 13. Whoa, two days? Given that there hasn’t been any indication from Verizon that this phone even exists, the chances of a July 13 release date is slim.

Earlier reports indicated that we could be hopeful…………… continues on Droid Life

LG F180 specs to rival Samsung Galaxy S3
News from Phones Review:

Today we have news for you of an upcoming LG phone, the LG F180, and although full specs and features are not yet known, from what we’ve seen so far this looks like it could rival the Samsung Galaxy S3 (S III). The F180 will be powered by a quad-core processor and to be honest the rest of the specs also jump off the page, making this one to sit up and take notice of.

A couple of days ago we spoke of a new LG Optimus smartphone that would be quad-core and could feature a 10-megapixel camera and we now think that could be the F180 although the specs of this are even better than expected. Bear in mind that F180 is currently the codename of this smartphone and we don’t know the title it will release under. There’s likely to be a huge amount of interest in this phone though so we’ll keep you informed with more as we hear it.

Rumored specs and features of the LG-F180, according to GSM Arena sourced from Android Authority, include a 1.5GHz quad-core Krait processor, Adreno 320 graphics, a 5-inch IPS HD display and 2GB of RAM. It’s already looking promising then…………… continues on Phones Review

Preview: LG Optimus LTE2

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Preview: LG Optimus LTE2
News from ARNnet:

The LG Optimus LTE2 will initially launch in Korea next month.

The LG Optimus LTE2 is the first smartphone to include 2GB of RAM.

LG was the first smartphone manufacturer to produce a phone with a dual-core processor — the Optimus 2X — and was also first with a quad-core powered smartphone, the Optimus 4X HD. It has now switched the focus from processor to RAM with the LTE2. Obviously, the “2″ in the LTE2 name refers to its 2GB of RAM.

RAM aside, the biggest attraction of the LG Optimus LTE2 appears to be 4G LTE connectivity. LG hasn’t finalised specifications for the device, which is currently only scheduled to launch in Korea. However, if it does launch in Australia it will most definitely work on Telstra’s 1800MHz 4G LTE network.

The LG Optimus LTE2 is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The dual-core processor includes an integrated LTE chip on board. Most users shouldn’t notice a speed difference between a dual-core smartphone and a quad-core one during r…………… continues on ARNnet

Suspects distract restaurant employee, steal cellphones
News from The Times and Democrat:

T&D Staff Report The Times and Democrat | Posted: Saturday, May 26, 2012 10:15 am |

EUTAWVILLE — Three men managed to distract an employee of China Town restaurant on Old Number Six Highway in Eutawville long enough to steal an iPhone and an LG phone on May 22.

According to Eutawville Police Chief Wesley Cook, the theft occurred around 1 p.m. The employee told Cook the trio entered the store and placed an order, then told her they didn’t have any money.

When the employee went to alert the manager in the kitchen, two of the men left the restaurant.

The remaining man asked the employee about the order he had placed, and she told him he could not get any food unless he paid for it.

He then left the store, the report said.

About an hour later, the employee realized her two cellphones were gone.

She reviewed surveillance video from the security cameras and noticed one of the men went behind the counter and grabbed the cellphones while she was in the kitchen talking to the manager.

Cook also reviewed the video, then asked around t…………… continues on The Times and Democrat

LG Optimus 3D Max
News from CNET:

In a world full of cheap gimmicks, it seems easy to slap on the 3D moniker in order to compensate for a product that isn’t up to par. (Remember that Justin Bieber movie, “Never Say Never”? Exactly.)

But in the case of the LG Optimus 3D Max, the successor to 2011′s LG Optimus 3D, the 3D feature may actually be the device’s downfall instead of its saving grace. Everything else about the handset is perfectly adequate — it has a decent 5-megapixel camera and a zippy 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and it’s NFC-enabled. Its biggest setback, however, is its 3D feature, which still has a few kinks to work out and bogs the phone down when connected to a data network.

Introduced in February at Mobile World Congress and launched about a month ago in Europe, the Optimus 3D Max is going for about $ 635 unlocked. But you won’t find the 3D Max in the States yet, and there’s no word on the carrier, pricing, or release date. So until it makes its way across the ocean, we’ll just have to get our 3D action someplace else.

Design

The LG Optimus 3D Max measures 4.99 inches tall and 2.65 inches wide. At 0.38 inch thick, it’s thinner than the o…………… continues on CNET

LG’s Optimus LTE2 Smartphone Boasts 2GB of RAM

LG’s Optimus LTE2 Smartphone Boasts 2GB of RAM
News from Tom’s Guide:

LG announces the successor to the Optimus LTE.

Samsung’s Galaxy S III may have dominated the smartphone news over the last couple of days, but LG today served up a little reminder that Samsung isn’t the only company with a top of the range smartphone in the pipeline. The company today launched the LG Optimus LTE2, which is set for launch in Korea this month.

Details regarding the phone are pretty scant but the company did mention the phone’s 2GB of RAM and a massive 2,150 mAh battery that should offer a battery life that’s 40 percent longer than comparable smartphones. The Korean press release also notes a True HD IPS display (size not yet known), and Android 4.0, AKA Ice Cream Sandwich.

LG has the LTE2 launching in South Korea in the middle of this month, but has yet to offer any details on an international launch. The original Optimus LTE was first released in October of 2011 in Korea. It launched in the United States three months later under the names LG Nitro HD (AT&T) and LG Spectrum (Verizon). If the LTE2 follows a similar timeline, we should see it arrive…………… continues on Tom’s Guide

LG Optimus L7 due this week
News from Techwatch:

Budget conscious smartphone with Ice Cream Sandwich

The LG Optimus L7 will be available to purchase in the UK very soon.

LG says that the smartphone will be arriving on shelves this week, in fact. Currently, Phones 4U has the handset up on its coming soon page (with an exclusive on the white version of the handset).

The Optimus L7 is a budget conscious Android offering, which boasts a 4.3in WVGA display, and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

The phone’s other specs include a 1GHz processor (single core), 2.7GB of memory (with support for up to 32GB extra via microSD), and a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash. There’s also a front-facing VGA camera.

A 1700mAh battery is on board, and the phone is a slimline affair, at just 8.7mm thick (or should that be thin?).

For the money, that’s a pretty decent spec, although the Optimus L7 has, of course, rather been overshadowed by the launch of that Android giant, the Galaxy S III, at the end of last week.

Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile, commented: “For consumers desiring high-end style and sophistication in a smartphone, LG Optimus L7 offers beauty and performance in one smart package. The L7 is a significant addition to our L-Series portfolio and we are confident that it’ll prove highly attractive to use…………… continues on Techwatch

LG Optimus LTE2 Smartphone Offers 4.7-Inch Display, 2GB of RAM

LG Optimus LTE2 Smartphone Offers 4.7-Inch Display, 2GB of RAM
News from eWeek:

LG Electronics stole a little spotlight from Korean-rival Samsung May 4, with the introduction of the Optimus LTE2. Like Samsung’s bar-raising Galaxy S III, introduced in London May 3, the new LG phone brings with it an industry first: 2GB of on-board RAM.

Delivering “firsts” to market is apparently part of the LG strategy to get itself noticed by smartphone buyers largely focused on Samsung and Apple. LG was also the first to debut a smartphone with a dual-core processor—the Optimus 2X—the first to offer a glasses-free 3D experience, on the Optimus 3D Max, and, with the Optimus 4X HD, the first to introduce a phone with a quad-core processor.

The bad news: LG introduced the LTE2 during a press event in Korean, suggesting U.S. consumers shouldn’t be expecting it any time soon.

Still, the tantalizing details—three cheers for Google Translate—include:

A Foolish Week of Telecom
News from DailyFinance:

As Mark Twain is reported to have written, “The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”

Or, to paraphrase this quote in an imagined statement from LG, “Contrary to what has been written in the Korea Herald and re-reported in the telecom media, LG is not abandoning Microsoft‘s Windows Phone.”

An actual quote from an LG spokesman, according to Pocket-Lint: “None of it is true. … We are still on board with Windows Phone, but right now, we’re focusing on Android because that’s where the demand is.”

This sounds like an “I’m behind you 110%” endorsement. In other words, Microsoft should not stop worrying about losing LG, at least as a result of that rebuttal.

And what about Nokia?
Speaking of Windows Phone, Nokia (NYS: NOK) , the phone maker that has essentially bet its future — at least in the smartphone marketplace — on its partnership with Microsoft in developing Windows Phone handsets, should be sweating bullets over that lukewarm affirmation from LG.

The Finnish company has lately become the Kim Kardashian of phone makers; it just can’t stop getting into the news, and not in the best way. As reported here…………… continues on DailyFinance

LG announces Optimus LTE2, coming to Korea mid-May with True HD IPS and 2GB RAM

LG announces Optimus LTE2, coming to Korea mid-May with True HD IPS and 2GB RAM
News from Engadget:

Unlike today’s other phone announcement, we can’t say we were expecting to see LG come out with something of its own — and it’s a bit of a doozy, at that. Samsung’s Korean rival decided not to let the Galaxy S III have the full spotlight for long, officially unleashing the Optimus LTE2. The mind-blowing portion of the spec sheet is its inclusion of 2GB RAM, a milestone we haven’t yet seen in a smartphone. Additionally, the LTE2 will feature the company’s “True HD IPS” display, WPC-backed wireless charging capabilities, Android 4.0 and a 2,150mAh battery that LG claims will increase the battery life by an astounding 40 percent. We haven’t received word on which CPU will be used, though we’re hopeful that a quad-core beast (or Krait, perhaps?) will complement the astounding amount of RAM. The LTE2 is due to land on at least three carriers in Korea sometime in mid-May, but we haven’t heard any pricing or additional country availability at this time. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more. In the meantime, check out LG’s Flickr pag…………… continues on Engadget

LG Denies Plans to Abandon Windows Phone
News from PC Magazine:

LG this week denied that it will abandon the Windows Phone platform, though it did concede that its primary focus is Android devices.

“No, we are not giving up on Windows Phone,” an LG spokesman said in an email. “Although we don’t have another Windows device in the pipeline at this moment, that is simply because demand for Android devices is so strong.”

“We’ve maintained since the beginning that LG will support whatever operating system consumers want but at the moment, our priority is to get our Android devices to a level where we feel we’ve covered all the bases, to use an American analogy,” the spokesman continued.

News of LG abandoning Windows Phone made the rounds yesterday after a report in the Korea Herald said that LG was “taking a step back from Windows phones.”

The report also said that Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer would meet with LG’s Koo Bon-joon during the Seoul Digital Forum on May 22.

The LG spokesman said the Korea Herald was taking things out of context and likened the publication t…………… continues on PC Magazine
