We’ve heard rumors about the LG Revolution’s successor, the LG Spectrum, for a little while now, and just as we imagined the company has officially unveiled the new smartphone at their press event at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The Spectrum is the newest high-end 4G LTE-equipped Android device for Verizon’s network, and for those of you excited to get your hands on it, LG has not only provided the launch date, but also the price tag right along with it.
We’ve seen leak after leak, so it’s finally good to see the device in more official terms. As far as specifications go, we’re looking at a device with a 4.5-inch true HD IPS display, with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor under the hood. It will feature an 8MP rear-facing camera capable of recording 1080p HD video, and it has a battery measured in at 1,830mAh. Interestingly enough, the handset will be launching with Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box, but Verizon says it can be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at some point in the future.
You can expect the LG Spectrum to arrive on Verizon’s 4G LTE network on January 19th for $199.99.
