Bell Launches Canada’s First HD Smartphone, the LG Optimus LTE


Those in Canada have been sitting by quietly as a series of smartphones featuring 720p displays has launched elsewhere. The HTC Rezound has hit the US and the Galaxy Nexus is now out in the UK. The Nexus will hit North America in December, but Canadians are getting their first taste of Android in high-def thanks to the LG Optimus LTE, available today on Bell.

The Android 2.3 handset features a 4.5-inch display at 720×1280 pixels, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, and an 8MP camera capable of 1080p video recording. On a three-year contract the Optimus LTE is priced as low as $149.95. The handset is making waves in Korea and is headed to the US as the LG Nitro HD.

  1. Don’t everyone clog up this post with too many comments now. 

    I for one will be visiting a Bell store to see a 720p smartphone screen for the first time. That is, assuming they have a working model, which they usually don’t. Should abate me for a while until the Gnex comes out. 

  2. This will be a very underestimated phone. It’s screen is better than the iphone 4(s) Retina display and even the Galaxy Nexus.

    Sadly, people will just go clog up and get the G-Nex because they want stock android but will suffer through shitty hardware.

    1. That “shitty hardware” will be better optimized for AOSP then LG’s Touchwiz knockoff.
