Last week, we learned that LG was planning on releasing a new flagship smartphone sometime in the coming months and now LG itself has confirmed that yes, it will be releasing a smartphone with an HD display. Although the press release was light on the details, it did mention that the phone will have an exclusive on Street Fighter IV for three months. It will show up on LG’s global apps site in Q4 of this year.
No word on a release date for the device just yet though.
The phone in question is likely going to be the LG LU6200 that we saw leak out last week. It’ll apparently feature a 4.5-inch screen with 1280 x 720 pixels and will also feature AH-IPS display technology, a dual-core 1.5GHz Scorpion processor, an Adreno 220 GPU, and 1GB of RAM. The LU6200 might also have a 4G LTE radio on board as well.
It will launch in Korea first, but it wouldn’t surprise us to see a variant head to either Verizon or AT&T’s 4G LTE networks at some point this year. Maybe in time for the holiday season.
Keep those fingers crossed.
