Just as expected, the high-end LG Spectrum smartphone from Verizon Wireless is officially available for purchase starting today. The Spectrum, announced during CES 2012, represents LG’s successor to the Revolution on Verizon and promises to be a powerful and sleek device on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
The Spectrum is priced at $199 on a two year contract and boasts 4G LTE connectivity, making it cheaper than other 4G LTE devices during the initial launch, but who’s complaining? Don’t let the sub-$299 price tag confuse you as the Spectrum contains high-end specs able to match up with the Motorola DROID RAZR, HTC Rezound, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
In terms of specs, the Spectrum by LG features a 4.5 inch True HD IPS display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, Android 2.3, 8MP rear facing camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, and Mobile Hotspot Capability up to ten devices. Even though it launched with Android 2.3 onboard, LG plans to upgrade it to Android 4.0 in the near future.
Again, if you’re interested in purchasing the LG Spectrum on Verizon Wireless, then you can visit the online web store or a physical retail store location starting today. For $199 on a two year contract, the LG Spectrum features an enticing price tag and spec list.
