The LG Optimus LTE “Superphone” that Bell made available today has such a gorgeous display, 4.5-inches of “True HD” goodness that has a resolution of 1280 x 720 (see video here). Apart from rocking Android OS 2.3 (no plans yet on an upgrade to OS 4.0), the LG Optimus LTE has an 8-megapixel camera that shoots 1080p HD videos, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and a 1.5 dual-core processor. As for prices, Bell has pegged this in for $149.95 on a 3-year and ranges up to $629.95 on a no-contract. Since this is an LTE device, Bell notes that you can eventually get download speeds of up to 75 Mbps, but you should really expect “average speeds of 12–25 Mbps”. In addition, if you fall outside the LTE coverage area you can still use this but will fall back to 4G HSPA+ speeds of up to 21 Mbps.
We’ll have a review up shortly.
