    LG Spectrum Launching January 19th; 1.5GHz dual-core CPU 4.5″ HD display, 4G LTE


    It looks like fans of LG phones may get to see a new flagship device at the end of January. The LG Spectrum has been previewed a bit previously, but now we have some press shots and full specs. The phone is jam-packed with high-end features, which goes against the normal grain of the typical LG product. Here's a quote from Droidmatters with a breakdown:

    • 4.5? True HD IPS display, protected by Gorilla Glass
    • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor
    • 8MP rear camera, shoots 1080p video
    • 1.3MP front camera
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 4GB of on-board storage, 16GB micro SD card pre-installed
    • 4G LTE
    • Mobile hotspot shares up to 10 connections
    • Android 2.3
    • 1830mAh battery (optional 3000mAh extended battery available at launch)
    • Bluetooth 3.0
    • Swype
    • Dimensions: 5.33? x 2.71? x .41?
    • Weight: 4.99 oz.
    For now this is mostly rumor, as Verizon hasn't officially announced anything yet, but the industry intel seems to suggest that we will see this device on January 19th. What do you guys think of this one?

    Looks like the notification bar from HTC phones and Touchwiz are all mixed in. Maybe more lawsuits?! (The outside of the phone looks nice)

    I've learned to wait til the phone is launched before I decide to like it or not. I want to know about the bootloader and what not. Specs look nice on paper, but real world use and modability is key to me these days.

    Are you sure the specs are right? Im looking at a wiki that breaks down all the snapdragon s series and the s3 does not support lte radios it shows that the s4 does. Could be bad/outdated info but just though i would throw it out there and how is a cpu/gpu that released in q3 2010 a highend device for a phone coming out q1 2012? Everything else looks nice but to me they gimped it on cpu/gpu.


    Now im reading into it a little bit more and a few lte phones are using this chipset. Maybe this is why lte is such a battery drainer on cell phones. They are using a chipset that isn't really designed to handle it so its working the cpu harder and thus the batter drain and which is why the phones get so hot.

    Not a phone expert but i am a intermediate computer user with a good amount of hardware knowledge but hey i could be wrong but this actually sounds like this is why lte phones are having problems.

    Take a look at the LG Nitro HD.
    The Spectrum looks like the CDMA/LTE version of the Nitro which is GSM/LTE.
