If you want a top tier Android smartphone rocking just about all the top of the line specs we've seen lately then you'll want to keep reading and check out the brand new LG Nitro HD. Powered by a dual-core processor and AT&T 4G LTE this phone is here to compete with the best. Also, don't forget that huge and bright 4.5" 1280 x 720p HD resolution display LG's equipped this phone with. We have plenty of pictures and a quick hands-on with this new smartphone so check it all out below.

The LG Nitro HD, better known as the Optimus LTE was recently revealed to be headed to AT&T earlier this month and was officially announced this week. The LG Nitro HD will hit AT&T stores starting this Sunday on December 4th so if she looks good to you, I'd get ready to throw down about $249. While I run down the specs in my video below lets go over it one more time before you enjoy some photos. The Nitro is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and comes equipped with a 4.5" H-IPS NOVA display that offers a full HD 1280 x 720p resolution. The NOVA display is said to be one of the brightest and best screens around and my initial impressions are very favorable.

The Nitro also offers an 8 megapixel camera around back with LED flash and 1.3 mp front camera for video chat. Under the hood the magic is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. We have 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage as well as a 16GB micro-SD card included in the box -- giving users plenty of space for all their needs. LG's gave us an 1830 mAh battery that should last through hours of gaming on that bright and vivid 4.5" HD panel too.

I don't want to spoil all of the fun and instead will save the rest of the details for our full review coming early next week. While we do have some bloatware I'm actually excited to try the new Zynga Poker HD that comes pre-loaded and will take advantage of the 720p HD screen. The specs claim its around 10mm thin but it most definitely feels sleek and thin while in your hands.

For now enjoy our hands-on and unboxing video and gallery of pictures, then stay tuned for our review shortly. If you have any specific questions or comparisons throw your ideas in the comments below.
