The successor of the LG Spectrum, aptly named the LG Spectrum 2, has leaked out by the fellows over at TechnoBuffalo. Just last week we saw the LG Cayenne and Motion 4G leak out for Sprint and MetroPCS, but the Spectrum successor will likely pack a punch much harder than the two aforementioned devices combined.
The LG Spectrum was, and still is a pretty well-rounded device. It’s successor boosts up the specs and will be packing a 4.7 inch HD display, of which we’d expect it to be of LG’s True HD IPS variaty. Other specs include a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8 megapixel rear-camera, front-facing camera, LTE support, and NFC. While you shouldn’t expect to see some Android 4.1 Jelly Bean love on the Spectrum 2, users will have to live with Ice Cream Sandwich, which is still one of the best iterations of the software we’ve seen.
The photos so a very boxy looking device for the Spectrum 2, which may end up being a good thing if one can still comfortably wield it in the hand. This design choice also depends on how thin the devices is as well. While I do like my curvy phones, I also like sharp edges in a handset design, as it lends to a more modern look. We can’t say that we have the answer at the moment, but we should be seeing the Spectrum 2 hit the streets sometime in the near future.
Why LG decided to throw a NFC logo on the back of the device is well beyond us. Sure, you can write tags, or Beam things to other Android users, but we certainly know that you won’t be able to use something like Google Wallet anytime soon with the device.
