The LG Optimus LTE II has arrived in South Korea, where it is touted to be the first smartphone that delivers 2GB RAM alongside LTE connectivity – something that the Samsung Galaxy S3 for Japan will be getting as well as announced earlier this morning. Why 2GB RAM? It is said that this amount of memory will deliver an optimal environment for multitasking capability, not to mention the ability to run large applications. Apart from that, the LG Optimus LTE II will also sport a 4.7″ True HD IPS display alongside a brightness level of 550 nits at 1280 x 720 resolution. As for its processing needs, there will be no quad-core chip here – rather, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor from Qualcomm will get the job done.
At least there is a removable 2,150mAh battery here which is touted to be the largest currently available on a LTE smartphone, at least for the category of smartphones that has a 4″ to 5″ screen size. Other hardware specifications of the LG Optimus LTE II include 16GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, an 8-megapixel camera at the back with a 1.3-megapixel shooter in front, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box.
