Additional details about LG’s second-generation 4G LTE smartphone for Verizon’s network have surfaced, including additional clear pictures of the front and rear of the device. The specs are also confirmed for the smartphone, which is a slimmer, sleeker improvement over the original Revolution, which was the third 4G LTE smartphone to launch on Verizon’s network, following the launches of the HTC Thunderbolt and Samsung Droid Charge. The fourth 4G LTE smartphone launch was the Motorola Droid Bionic.
The new Revolution 2, which is also known by its LG Spectrum code name, will feature a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU from Qualcomm along with Android Gingerbread. The phone will only be 10.6 mm thick.
The Revolution 2 will be LG’s second smartphone in the U.S. featuring a 720p HD display–the first device is the LG Nitro launched on AT&T’s 4G HSPA+/LTE network. The Revolution 2 will have a 4.5-inch display.
Other specs include an 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, 1.3-megapixel front camera, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi b/g/n, HDMI, DLNA, WiFi Direct support, and a capacious 1830 mAh battery.
Like Samsung’s device, the LG Revolution 2 will provide hotspot functionality for up to 10 devices.
