LG schedules special launch event for December 1

LG Mobile has sent out invitations today to a special launch event that it's hosting on December 1 in New York City. The invite doesn't reveal much in the way of details, stating only that "all will be revealed." However, the gamut of recent LG rumors suggests that it will likely be for a high-end smartphone unveiling.

Recent rumors claim that LG will be launching a US version of its LG Optimus LTE smartphone, which has already launched on Bell Canada. But unlike its northern brethren that's simply called the LG Optimus LTE, the US version that's slated for AT&T's 4G LTE network will be rebranded as the LG Nitro HD.

The Nitro HD is expected to feature a 4.5-inch display with 720p resolution, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. It will come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and pack a large 1,830mAh battery that should give it more juice for the power-greedy LTE.
