It seems like each month a new smartphone is released which raises the bar for other manufacturers to follow, recently a leaked photo of the LG LU6200 showed up on Engadget – not only did this give us a glimpse at this powerhouse of a smartphone, but some rumored specs were also pointed our way.
Now firstly before we get too excited we must confirm that these are spec rumors and by no means confirmed, however if they turn out to be accurate the LG LU6200 will be a formidable handset. According to Engadget it could feature a 4.5-inch AH-IPS display which outputs at a 720p resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of built-in storage and an 8 megapixel camera on the rear. Other specs are not confirmed but we are led to believe that it will also feature a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and run Android 2.3.5, don’t worry though as an update to Ice Cream Sandwich is expected.
We have no information regarding pricing or a release date, however we are told that it will arrive in Korea next month and connect to LG Telecom’s U+ LTE network – what we do have for you are a few leaked photos of the LU6200 – we hope this smartphone will get a more catchy name if and when it hits other markets.
The photos show that at first glance it looks quite a lot like the LG Optimus Q2 which we spoke about yesterday (however there is no slide-out QWERTY keyboard), also if you look closely at the middle image there appears to be just 3 Android buttons instead of the four we are used to seeing, finally we like the look of the back cover as it has a premium feel thanks to a chequered design – do you like this feature?
As previously mentioned there is still a lot we don’t know about this smartphone, therefore we will keep you up-to-date as we hear official information.
