It’s only been a few week since we heard that the LG Optimus LTE smartphone was heading to Bell Canada. At the time, the smartphone was tipped to be called the Eye on the Canadian network. Today LG has officially announced that the Optimus LTE will in fact be hitting Bell in Canada. The exact launch date hasn’t been offered with LG simply stating that the phone would be hitting “in the coming weeks.”
Last time the Optimus LTE was tipped to be called the Eye on the Canadian network. However, the official LG statement never refers to the Optimus LTE as the Eye. The device will operate on the Bell 4G LTE network and the smartphone has a very impressive screen. The screen on the smartphone is a 4.5-inch True HD IPS unit with a resolution of 1280 x 720 supporting native 720p HD content.
The screen also offers natural colors and is power efficient for longer battery life. The battery inside is an 1830 mAh unit. The processor is a dual core 1.5 GHz offering, the smartphone supports DLNA, and packs an 8MP rear camera and HDMI output. The OS is Android 2.3 and pricing is unconfirmed. We are still betting the Optimus LTE will hit the US eventually.
