LG is introducing an all-white flavor of the Optimus LTE 2 smartphone in South Korea. The earlier version, which came in black, had been available in the country since the latter part of May. It sold around 150,000 units in South Korea in only ten days, which makes it one of the most popular phones that LG ever released. It also carries the distinction of being the world’s first phone that offers 2 GB of RAM.
LG, which is based in Korea, seems to be enjoying some success in their home country, reportedly selling 410,000 smartphones monthly in the region, with 330,000 of them capable of LTE connectivity. Apparently, it wants to add to this success with the release of the white handset.
The specifications of the white Optimus LTE 2 are exactly the same as the black Optimus LTE 2. The Optimus LTE 2 sports a candybar form factor. Its capacitive IPS LCD boasts of True HD quality and spans 4.7 inches and has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels at a pixel density of 312 ppi. It also comes with a full RGB matrix, which gives high-quality images comparable to those from the Samsung Galaxy S3’s PenTile technology. This screen supports multi-touch gestures and comes with a scratch-resistant glass, a light sensor, and a proximity sensor.
Its hardware includes a Qualcomm MSM8960 system chip, a fast dual-core processor at 1500 MHz, 2 GB of RAM, and 16000 MB of internal storage. LG allows expansion of this storage for up to 32 GB through a microSD or a microSDHC.
Meanwhile, its main camera has 8 megapixels, auto-focus, digital zoom, and Geo-tagging. A secondary camera delivers images with 1.3 megapixels. Apart from LTE connectivity, its users will enjoy Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n, a on the phone, as well as Bluetooth 4.0. This phone likewise supports GPS, NFC, DLNA, MHL, and USB 2.0 connections.
Currently, there is no word about whether this phone will be available in Europe or North America. Hopefully, it will, since the phone appears to have good specifications that will be a nice addition to the options already available in these markets.
