LG Optimus 4X and Vu hit CTIA: we go hands-on

The folks at LG have brought several members of their next-generation smartphone family along to the USA, having only shown the LG Optimus 4X and LG Optimus Vu (phablet) off before at Mobile World Congress 2012. We got the opportunity to get another hands-on close-up experience with both of these devices - but before we go there, know this: LG has still not confirmed that they'll be bringing these devices to the USA, only that there is a possibility.

Galaxy S III vs LG Optimus LTE 2

Galaxy S III vs LG Optimus LTE 2

There's a war going on out there between the international smartphone manufacturers, and at this very moment it's being squared off between Samsung and LG. What we've got here are two titans, both of them having been announced just this week to the public for imminent release. The LG Optimus LTE 2 brings on a device with a screen size they've not yet revealed made with "True HD" IPS technology - that being more than likely much sharper than what you'll see on the Galaxy S III, Samsung's contribution to this equation being a full-on attack with a solid smartphone hardware arrangement and a whole new look at software.

LG Optimus True HD LTE official in Germany

The LG Optimus LTE P936 made a suitably leaky appearance last month which seemed to be bound for Europe, and now LG has confirmed it. The company will be bringing the handset to German carriers as the LG Optimus True HD LTE. Why “True HD”?

LG hammered this point home back at CES 2012 for the LG Spectrum, and looks like the marketing isn’t letting up even for this variant.
