LG Spectrum for Verizon packs some punches – Ice Cream Sandwich isn’t one of them

It looks like the successor to the LG Revolution is finally here, as the LG Spectrum will be landing on Big Red on January 19th. The Gingerbread-toting handset is packed to the gills with high-end specs, the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 being one of them.

The Spectrum sports a 4.5 inch (1280 x 720) True HD IPS display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor, 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 1 GB RAM, 4G LTE, and more. While it’s not officially being called the Revolution 2 (at least not yet), we’d say that the spectrum doesn’t really even deserve the Revolution moniker, as the Spectrum is pretty much in a league of its own. For now.

Pricing hasn’t been determined yet but it’s easy to assume that we’re looking at $300 phone on a 2-year contract. We’re probably also looking at some truly bad battery life but what do you do? The Spectrum hits all the right spots when it comes to hardware but we definitely wish the handset would have shipped with Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s a bit too soon before other phones that aren’t the Galaxy Nexus will ship with Android 4.0 but we can wish.

The design of the handset looks like typical LG. Definitely not a bad-looking handset but it’s a bit boring. That said, we have our doubts that people who are looking for the power that the Spectrum offers won’t care much about the looks of the handset.

The LG Spectrum has runaway hit written all over it. Any takers?
