LG today announced the Optimus LTE II with 2GB RAM, a quad core Qualcomm CPU and a 4.7" True HD IPS display. The LG Optimus LTE II will be available in Korea starting this week. Here is more info:
The Optimus LTE II's 2GB DDR RAM, offering an optimal environment for multitasking and running large applications, blurs the line even more between smartphones and portable computers such as laptops and netbooks. The device's 4.7-inch True HD IPS display is a bright 550 nits with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The Dual Core Qualcomm one-chip solution incorporates both the LTE modem and Application Processor (AP) for advanced power efficiency.
LG sets a new ceiling for smartphones with a removable 2,150mAh battery that is the largest currently available on a LTE smartphone in the 4- to 5-inch display category.
The LG Optimus LTE II also offers various innovative features to maximize the user experience. The advanced camera in the Optimus LTE II comes with a powerful new feature that allows users to select the best shot among multiple images take just before the shutter button is depressed. And the Voice Shutter feature allows users to take photos using only their voice, elimination the camera shake that often occurs when pressing the shutter.
The new User Interface (UI) on Optimus LTE II offers a diverse range of convenient features such as face recognition unlocking, widget size control and easy-to-organize folder management. The Optimus LTE II comes with the Quick Memo feature which first debuted on the Optimus Vu: that allows for quick note-taking from any screen without opening a separate application.
Users will also benefit from the most current Android 4.0 OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) on the Optimus LTE II, the first smartphone from LG in Korea to offer this operating system. With the smarter and faster ICS OS, users can enjoy a more advanced multitasking experience.
The Opitmus LTE II has optional magnetic induction wireless charging system, sold separately. The smartphone can be recharged by placing the device on the wireless battery charging pad. The system has been recognized by the Wireless Power Consortium with its "Qi" (pronounced chee) logo, assuring interoperability with all other Qi devices.
