LG is a manufacturer often forgot about when it comes to Android, with the big boys like Samsung, HTC and Motorola usually in the spotlight. However, it looks like LG is looking to play with the big boys, and recently announced the Optimus LTE2. One of the biggest features touted was the phones 2GB of RAM, something we have yet to see in an Android handset. Although we know a little bit about the phone, until now we didn’t know what it looked like. Above is a newly leaked screenshot.
The handset is rumored to feature a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display, a dual-core S4 Snapdragon processor, and Ice Cream Sandwich as the Android version of choice. On top of the dessert will be LG’s custom interface, something we’ve grown accustomed to on devices from the company.
To me, it looks very similar to the international version of the Galaxy S II. With that home button smack-dab in the middle, the the LTE2 and SII could almost be brothers. Do you blame LG though? Samsung’s Galaxy SII was probably the most popular Android handset ever released, with countless variants in all shapes and sizes. What are your thoughts on the Optimus LTE2? Should LG stick to their own designs?
