LG Flagship Smartphone Released In Korea


The Optimus LTE II smartphone from LG, which is offering 2GB RAM LTE connectivity, will be available in Korea starting this week, the company announced today.

The Optimus LTE II smartphone, which costs 935,000 won ($804) without subsidies, will be released by all three mobile carriers in South Korea this week. Park Jong-seok, president of LG's mobile business, said Thursday the new model is for South Korean users only but similar iterations would be released overseas.

The Optimus LTE II's 2GB DDR RAM is offering an optimized environment for multitasking and running large applications. The device has a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display as bright as 550 nits with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It is powered by a Dual-Core Qual-comm one-chip solution, which incorporates both the LTE modem and Application Processor (AP).

The smartphone is also equipped with a removable 2,150mAh battery that is the largest currently available on a LTE smartphone in the 4- to 5-inch display category.

The LG Optimus LTE II also cmomes with a new feature that allows users to select the best shot among multiple images take with the phone's camera, just before the shutter button is depressed. And the Voice Shutter feature allows users to take photos using only their voice.

The new User Interface (UI) on Optimus LTE II offers a diverse range of t features such as face recognition unlocking, widget size control and easy-to-organize folder management. Furthermore, Optimus LTE II comes with the Quick Memo feature - first debuted on the Optimus Vu: - that allows for quick note-taking from any screen without opening a separate application.

Users will also benefit from the most current Android 4.0 OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) on the Optimus LTE II.

Another feature only available for Opitmus LTE II is the optional magnetic induction wireless charging system, sold separately. The smartphone can be recharged by placing the device on the wireless battery charging pad. The system has been recognized by the Wireless Power Consortium with its "Qi" (pronounced chee) logo, assuring interoperability with all other Qi devices.

The Optimus LTE II is available through all three Korean carriers this week. Availability in markets outside of Korea will be announced at a future date.

LG, which is recuperating from massive losses in its mobile business since 2010, is betting on the introduction of a faster LTE mobile network around the world to boost smartphone sales.

LG was overtaken by Apple last year. Sales of LG's low-end phones were hit by Chinese competitors while its top-end lineup could not compete with the Galaxy series of smartphones by Samsung or Apple's iPhones.

LG said it is aiming for smartphones to make up 44 percent of its mobile phone sales in 2012, compared with 23 percent in 2011.

Shortages of mobile chips made by Qualcomm, however, remain a potential roadblock in achieving its smartphone sales goal.

"It is one of the issues that are giving headaches," Park said. "All industry is experiencing the shortages."

In the meantime, LG's rival Samsung will also fit 2GB of RAM in its Japanese vesion of the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone. The Japanese variant of the GS III runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 'Krait' dual-core SoC, which is compatible with Japan?s NTT Docomo 4G LTE network.

While it is unlikely that other markets will receive the 1GB RAM upgrade, the Galaxy S III will have more than enough power for users. Like the HTC One X, which is offered with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor on 3G networks and the same dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor for 4G LTE networks, the Galaxy S III follows suit.

Samsung's Japanese model will continue to centre on a 4.8-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED HD display. It will be offered in 16, 32 and 64GB versions with a large 2,100mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 with Samsung?s latest TouchWiz overlay.

LG Optimus LTE II specifications:

- Chipset: 1.5GHz Dual-Core (Qualcomm MSM8960)
- Display: 4.7-inch True HD IPS Display (1280 x 720)
- Memory: 2GB DDR RAM, 16GB Internal Storage, Micro SD support (up to 32GB)
- Camera: 8MP rear-facing, 1.3MP front-facing
- OS: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- Battery: 2,150 mAh SiO+, Wireless Charging Support Available
- Other: WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0 LE, MHL, NFC, USB 2.0 HS, DLNA
