LG has announced that the popular Optimus True HD LTE will be launched on European and Asia continents soon, with Germany, Portugal, Sweden, Singapore and Hong Kong being the first markets to receive the mobile.
Although an official release date hasn't been stated, the smartphone will first be launched in countries with LTE networks in the first period. LG has confirmed to ITProPortal that it currently has no plans to bring the Optimus True HD to the UK, but it will support LTE with a number of phones, when 4G rolls out in Blighty.
The LG Optimus True HD LTE is the same model as the P936, a phone already available in Korea, Japan, US and Canada under several different names: Nitro HD (on AT&T), Spectrum (on Verizon) and simply Optimus LTE for most of the remaining markets.
The smartphone integrates a 4.5in True HD IPS display with a 1,280 by 720 pixel resolution, an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, from the Snapdragon family.
Optimus True HD LTE runs on Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread - with a strong promise that it will get an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade - while packing a 16GB microSD card. The phone also comes with T-DMB connectivity, while having both HSPA+ and LTE support.
"With the Optimus True HD LTE, we want customers to understand that LTE isn't just about the network and that all LTE phones are not alike", said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
