Android has come a long way since the days of companies launching “iPhone killers”. It seems that the Android ecosystem has a king now and that’s Galaxy S II. And that’s why LG is supposedly not wasting any time and is trying to dethrone it. LG has long been a close competitor to Samsung, so this comes off as no surprise.
If you remember LG last year, they wanted to be the first manufacturer with a dual core Tegra 2 smartphone on the market. Unfortunately, they had to cut some corners to do that. They didn’t have time to put Android 2.3 on the Optimus 2X, and it also came with quite a few bugs. So we know that LG can build a phone that can out-spec every phone on the market. But the real question will be, will it be polished enough? We’ll see. I believe they deserve the benefit of the doubt,and they are catching up fast with other top manufacturers in the Android ecosystem.
So what are these rumored specs for the “Galaxy S II killer” apparently named LG LU6200 (please don’t make that launch name LG)? Let’s take a look:
- 4.5-inch AH-IPS display with True HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels)
- 1.5 GHz dual-core processor Snapdragon S3 (MSM8660)
- 1 GB RAM
- LTE speeds up to 75 Mbps
- 132.9 x 67.9 x 10.5 mm, 123 g
- WiFi Direct, MHL, DLNA
- 1830 mAh battery
- 1.3 MP front camera
- 8 MP rear camera
