The LG Optimus LTE has found success in the Korean market and is looking to do the same here in the U.S as the LG Nitro HD. The device, once rumored to become Verizon’s Revolution 2, will now be landing on AT&T with an impressive list of specs. The Nitro HD will be the first phone Stateside to beat the iPhone’s Retina display, thanks to LG’s PenTile-free True HD IPS screen.
This 4.5-inch beauty runs Android 2.3 out of the box with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Additionally, with 4G LTE and HSPA+ connectivity the Nitro HD will be able to hit speeds as high as 21Mbps. Unfortunately, pricing and a release date are still unknown. The Nitro HD is an important phone for LG, who hasn’t been a major player in the U.S.’s high-end smartphone industry.
