As you probably know by now, things never stay still in the Android Universe. Just a few short days ago, we got wind of LG’s latest killer device – and it’s looking to be an absolute beast of a superphone. Thankfully, today, hands on images of the device itself have surfaced, as have further details about its specs. For the doubters out there – check the images below. Dubbed the LG LU6200, it was recently spotted in Korea courtesy of a site named Money Today, and we have them posted for you below. Featuring a massive 4.5 inch 720p AH-IPS display, it has a substantial 1830mAh battery, and a very aesthetically pleasing back too. Check out the specs below.

Specs

  • 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

While it’s not confirmed whether this particular gem of an Android superphone will ever see the light of day on North American or even European shores, we have a feeling it will – just with a different name. LG is stepping its Android game up, and in a big way at that. Most major OEM’s these days aren’t making any money in the display panel business, and have their sites razor set on the ultra hot smartphone / tablet markets. With this in mind, we think it would be crazy for them to bring this to market without trying to woo the west. Also, it will be going on sale in Korea next month.

Any thoughts? Is 4.5 inches of superphone goodness to much to handle? What’s the sweetspot?

    ,.. awesomee ..

    I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prĂ®ces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

    I had an infuse with a 4.5 inch screen and it was just a bit too large for me.

    It seemed like I had to grab the phone with both hands, to feel comfortable about not dropping it, when I wanted to push one of the buttons on the bottom of the phone.

    The large screen was great for reading but the safety factor of not dropping the unit was more compelling in my decision to return the phone.

    I understand the Attain will have a 4.3 inch screen, which I will look at, if it ever arrives.

    I’m a 3GS user, with small hands, so I will probably wait to see the IPhone 5 also.

    Since I’m out of contract, and my 3GS does most everything I want NEED it to do, I’m kind of in a sweet spot.
