LG calls up 720p IPS screen smartphone for Verizon

Nitro by any other name

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

CES 2012

LG has just unwrapped the LTE-capable version of its Nitro HD smartphone: the Spectrum.

Designed for the Verizon network in the US, the Spectrum boasts a 4.5in, 1280 x 720 IPS LCD screen - specs that give it a dot density of 329ppi.

LG's pitching the handset as "true HD", and we wonder how many buyers will be disappointed to find that it's not, as they may have assumed, 1920 x 1080.

LG Spectrum for Verizon

The handset has a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 dual-core processor that runs Android 3.2 Gingerbread - though LG promised an Ice Cream Sandwich update. It has a 1080p-cable 8Mp camera on the back, Bluetooth 3.0 and 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi.

If the specs sound familiar, it's because they match those of the Nitro HD, the LTE phone LG announced for AT&T back in November 2011.

The LG Spectrum goes on sale through Verizon on 19 January, pricing TBC. ®
