Just as expected, the Verizon LG Spectrum just went up for sale today and it is LG’s most interesting smartphone at the moment. It pitched (and priced) by Verizon as a true high-end smartphone, and and the paper, it should perform well. Its main feature is a large 4.5″ 720p (1280×720) IPS display but on the inside, it is powered by a dual-core SnapDragon S3 processor running at 1.5GHz. Of course, it’s a Verizon LTE phone which comes with a sizeable 1830mAh battery.
Out of the box, there is 16GB of user storage, and 1GB of RAM for applications. The cameras specs also look good: 8 Megapixel, 1080p video recording. In the front, there is a 720p camera for video calls. Of course, those numbers are just an indication and don’t actually mean much until we’ve put it to the test, so stay tuned.
Note that Bluetooth is “only” 3.0 – that’s too bad because BT 4.0 uses much less power in standby mode, so that would be a big deal for those of you who like to use a headset at all times. Finally, this phone runs Android 2.3, and there is no official word on when (or if) it will be upgraded to Android 4.0 shortly. [official homepage]
