It hasn’t even been a full year and we may already be seeing Verizon’s first LTE devices out the door in favor of newer models. One such device would be the LG Revolution 2, and from the looks of it, it is very real and could have just passed through the FCC. Meet the LG VS920.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Revolution 2 name floating around, as we’ve been expecting it’s arrive ever since Verizon’s roadmap leaked out. That said, the original Revolution isn’t a handset many people would call old, but you know the way technology goes.
So what could we expect from the Revolution 2 when it debuts? For one, throw in a dual-core processor into it to please the spec junkies. Another thing we’d like to see is a slimmer profile, and slim isn’t necessarily an adjective you hear associated with Verizon’s LTE devices today. Number three? Make it interesting. LG has made some serious strides in the smartphone market lately but there’s just nothing that makes the original Revolution stick out when you sit the Thunderbolt and Charge next to it.
Even with a Revolution refresh, LG faces some stiff Android competition from HTC, Motorola, and Samsung. Motorola is set to launch the Droid Bionic and Droid HD on the world some time in the near future, Samsung will drop the Galaxy S 2 on the US, along side a possible LTE variant for Big Red, and the Nexus/Droid Prime handset. That is if the latter two aren’t one and the same. HTC will continue with whatever it does, which means making Facebook phones and Android handsets for girls as of late.
Is LG rushing is Revolution successor before the competition makes its debut or will the Revolution 2 be one of the first next-gen LTE handsets for Verizon worth buying?
