Even though most of the world still waits to try out the Optimus LTE, LG is already pushing the successor device in its own backyard. The electronics giant announced that the Optimus LTE2 will be available this week in South Korea, boasting few improvements over the original Optimus LTE model. There are two things to notice here – the new Optimus LTE comes with 2GB of RAM and a larger (2,150mAh) battery, while the rest of the specs is pretty much unchanged and includes a 4.7-inch True HD IPS LCD screen, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing one, GPS, Wi-Fi and so on.
While we’re not sure what’s the point of an extra gig of RAM — though it’s always good to have more of it — we do dig the larger battery with LTE networks pretty much draining your phone’s battery life like it’s nobody’s business. However, we do wonder whether LG has set a new trend with 2 GB of RAM and should we expect to see more demanding apps hitting Google Play. It’s hard to tell at the moment, but I’m sure game developers will be among the first ones to store more textures to the phone’s memory.
Finally, if you wonder – we’ve no idea when LG will launch the Optimus LTE2 in the Western hemisphere. We will make sure you have that information as soon as we get it. 😉
