LG announces Optimus LTE2, sports 2GB of RAM, tries to step out of Samsung's shadow

LG announce ICS-powered Optimus LTE2

Samsung caused quite the stir over the past week or so with their GALAXY S III announcement, but not wanting to fade into the darkness, LG have announced their new LG Optimus LTE2 which definitely looks like it could butt heads with Samsung.

Design and build-wise, it looks spiffy: sporting a glass and metal casing instead of the glossy plastic exterior that the GALAXY series features. The second note you should take away from this announcement is that it sports 2GB of RAM, a first for any smartphone, as well as a very sexy TrueHD IPS display rather than the standard RGBG subpixel layout that's expected to outclass the PenTile RGBG layout that Samsung has opted for in the GALAXY S III.


We are also looking at wireless charging with a separate dock, 4G LTE connectivity, a decent 2,150 mAh battery and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. At hte moment, processor and screen size/resolution are all unknowns, but if the other specs are anything to go by, they should impress too.


The LG Optimus LTE2 should splash down in Korea sometime in mid-May, and currently has no ETA on when it will jump the pond.
