The exact launch date hasn’t been offered with LG simply stating that the phone would be hitting "in the coming weeks."

LG calls own Optimus 2X Ice Cream Sandwich denial “rumors”

LG has backtracked on its suggestions that the LG Optimus 2X will not get an official upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with the company saying it "firmly denies the rumors" despite the original source being its own Indian Facebook team.

LG Optimus LTE gets official: 4G, HD display and dual-core

LG has outed its latest smartphone, the LG Optimus LTE, and as the name suggests it's a challenge to Samsung's recently revealed Galaxy S II LTE. The Android-powered Optimus LTE - or LU6200 as we knew it before - supports high-speed mobile data, of course, but LG is particularly proud of the 4.5-inch "IPS True HD" display which, the company reckons, will be the first 1280 x 720 smartphone panel to go on sale in South Korea.

Virgin Mobile presents the LG Optimus Slider and HTC Wildfire

Virgin Mobile presents the LG Optimus Slider and HTC Wildfire

The folks at the Virgin Mobile offices in Canada must be having a big American party today because they've once again secured some fairly awesome Android phones to deal another wave of damage to the rest of the market share competition in the USA. That may be a bit of a stretch, but compared to past offerings, the LG Optimus Slider and the HTC Wildfire are certainly contenders for their ever-greatening Android team. The LG Optimus Slider is not the same as the LG Optimus Note we saw a few weeks ago, but it does have a full QWERTY keyboard sliding out from under it - the HTC Wildfire S, on the other hand is basically the same version we've seen in England and on T-Mobile.

LG LU6200 spotted in photos, now called LG Optimus LTE

There's a device out there made by LG, one that's got the most powerful dual-core processor LG has ever offered on a handset, one that's got 4G LTE speed capabilities right along with the ultra-powerful motor. This device has a few names already, a code name LG LU6200 and an obvious street-name, that being the LG Optimus LTE, and now we've got a few in-real-life photos of the beast as well. While this isn't the first dual-core smartphone LG has ever offered, their first being the LG Optimus 2x (aka T-Mobile G2X, the world's first dual-core smartphone in its first iteration), it's certainly the most impressive.

LG Optimus Note Revealed as group’s 4th dual-core Android [Video]

As a manufacturer, LG is no stranger to dual-core Android goodness, having been the first (or certainly one of the first) groups to bring more than one core to a smartphone with the LG G2x (also called the Optimus 2X internationally), then the LG G-Slate (a dual-core tablet), finally the Optimus 3D (aka the Thrill 4G) to the Android world. Now they appear very much to be coming back with a slide-out keyboard on a device called the LG Optimus Note and their 2-1 and possibly 3-1 favorite for dual-core processors, the NVIDIA Tegra 2 running inside.
