A device known only as model number VS930 has been spotted at the GCF (Global Certification Forum). This is an LG device that is most likely Verizon’s version of the LG Optimus LTE2… you know, the first phone with 2GB of RAM on board. The VS930 seen at the GCF, however, only lists global radios but no CDMA or LTE bands like we’d expect for a phone coming to the U.S. This could just mean they are currently only testing the global radios since Verizon’s phones will all include global roaming going forward.
The LTE2 is LG’s answer to Samsung’s Galaxy S III, and they even announced it on the same day Samsung announced the S III. Announced specs include a 4.7-inch HD display, 2150 mAh battery, wireless charging, dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We also learned about some of its interesting camera features.
No release date yet, but LG was hoping for sometime in May for Korea, which most likely means a U.S. release wouldn’t come until one or two months later.
