Leak: LG Optimus LTE III: 720p HD screen, 4G LTE, and Samsung design

An as yet to be announced phone from LG just got leaked. It's called the Optimus LTE III, and it looks a lot like a Galaxy S II. It even has the same flip cover as the GS3.
February 28, 2013

How many phones did LG announce at Mobile World Congress this year? It’s OK if you don’t know the answer, because let’s be honest with each other for a second, nothing in LG’s portfolio really stands out. Despite that, let’s try and run through everything: You’ve got the new L series II devices, the L3II, L5II, and L7II, then you have the two F phones, the F5 and the F7, and let’s also not forget about the LG Optimus G Pro, which was announced once in Japan, once in America, and now yet another time in Europe.

One would think that’s enough phones, but nope, there’s more! According to Unwired View, what you’re looking at above is the unannounced LG Optimus LTE III. It has a 720p screen (unknown size), 4G LTE support (obviously), and a design that looks like a cross between the second and third generation Galaxy S phones from Samsung.

Hell, LG even created a flip cover accessory, just like Samsung has, in order to make this new device look that much more important.

When will the LTE III be formally announced? Eh, do you even care? There are six other LG phones for you to choose from. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that the F7 (above) is the exact same phone as the Optimus LTE III. Seriously, just look at the two devices and try to spot the differences, because we tried, and we failed.

Why are we so down on LG? Because we’re tired of seeing them create clones of Samsung device. Tired is actually the wrong word, we’re disgusted every time LG announces a new phone and we download the press images only to discover that we’re looking at a device that looks like a 12 to 18 month old Samsung Galaxy.

Come on, LG, you’re better than that!
