Some new images of the LG U+ LTE have surfaced online. Korean site Cetizen was able to gather these pics of LG’s upcoming flagship device in the wild, giving us a clearer picture on the device’s aesthetics and build quality. The chrome metal band around the sides of the device look an awful lot like the Samsung’s Galaxy S II X (Hercules) pictured yesterday.

On the back you have a rather uninspired textured battery cover, once again — bringing thoughts of the Galaxy S II to mind. What’s strange is earlier leaked pics of the device have a much different (better looking) crosshatched textured battery cover. Not sure which pic is more up to date as far as that’s concerned.

As a refresher, the LG U+ is an LTE capable device that can hit (theoretical) 75Mbs data speeds. This device will also come equippped with a dual-core Snapdragon process and beautiful 720p HD IPS display. No word on pricing or release date but you can bet this device will be hitting stateside sometime in the near future.

With the accusations of Samsung copying Apple it seems as if Sammy may have a little copycat of their own. What do you guys think? I understand there are only so many ways you can design a smartphone but do you feel this design is hit or miss?
