Given that Korea is home to big names like Samsung and LG, it is not surprising that sometimes devices are released over there first before they arrive for the rest of the world. One such device has been announced recently and it is none other than LG’s Optimus LTE III. Obviously this handset is the successor the Optimus LTE II and will come with a 4.7” HD 720×1280 IPS display. A bit of a pity since Full HD seems to be the trend these days. The Optimus LTE III will also sport a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 2GB of RAM and an 8MP rear-facing camera with a decently sized 2,540mAh battery with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean running the show. The LG Optimus LTE III will be launched by LG and SK Telecom and will be available in black and white. No word on if and when this device will arrive stateside or to markets around the world, but we will be keeping our eyes peeled. However based on its specs, it really isn’t anything to shout about and with more powerful devices like the LG Optimus G Pro, or the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4, the Optimus LTE III could find itself lost in the sea of competition.
