LG Optimus LTE with HD Display Launched in South Korea

Korean electronics giant LG has unveiled the Optimus LTE which comes with True HD IPS display and coveted 4G connectivity.

Much to the disappointment of LG fans in the UK, the device is currently being launched in South Korea only.

The massive 4.5 inch 326ppi display is the device’s highlight and is superior to Apple’s iPhone 4 Retina Display.

The device is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and comes with DLNA support for networked media streaming. The company has fitted the device with 1,830mAh battery and an 8MP camera capable of HD video recording.

Korean wireless carrier SK Telecom will start offering the device from October 5. LG is yet to decide whether it is going to offer the device beyond the Korean market.

"LG Optimus LTE is the first smartphone in Korea to offer vivid and clear HD content on a 4G network," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

"Our goal is to be a leading player in LTE devices by continuously offering best-in-class products based on our LTE patents and know-how," he added.
