Despite LG being aboard the Android bandwagon from Day 1 as members of the OHA, they’re lagging behind competitors like HTC, Motorola, and Samsung in terms of both quality and quantity of Android phone launches. Since last month we’ve been hearing about the LG LU2300 – we heard about an augmented app for the device and got a few renders – but now some more information is dropping.
First and foremost the LG LU2300 is looking pretty delicious with its slideout QWERTY keyboard, circular D-Pad and interesting hardware button setup on the front:
The “special” part of the LG LU2300 is that it isn’t a low powered device as other LG Androids have been: this phone packs a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.5-inch AMOLED screen, 5MP camera and runs Android 2.1. The “nspecial” part of this news? It’ll probably still only launch in South Korea in its current form.
We’re hoping LG stuffs those innards with North American and European mojo juice but right now, that’s not looking like an imminent possibility.
