LG Optimus LTE II

After a few initial details on the LG Optimus LTE II surfaced earlier this month, some more details on the handset have surfaced this morning. The Optimus LTE II features a 4.7-inch 1280x720 True HD IPS display along with a 1.3-megapixel camera on its face, and there's also an 8-megapixel shooter around back. Buried inside you'll find a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, NFC, 16GB storage, microSD slot and a 2,150mAh battery. The Optimus LTE II will come to market packing Android 4.0 as well as LG's new Optimus UI 3.0.

As far as availability goes, the Optimus LTE II is set to arrive in South Korea this week. LG has said that the handset will hit other countries, the U.S. and Canada included, later this summer. No other launch date or possible carriers details were mentioned.

While the Optimus LTE II's headlining feature is its 2GB of RAM, the handset features a few other high-end specs as well, including a 4.7-inch 720p display and a large battery to help keep the whole thing powered up. We're still in the dark as to which carriers could offer the Optimus LTE II here in the U.S., but it'll be interesting to see which operators pick it up. Both AT&T and Verizon currently offer variants of the original Optimus LTE (Nitro HD and Spectrum, respectively), so those are certainly two possibilities. We'll keep you posted as we learn more. Any of you think you'd be interested in the Optimus LTE II and its Optimus UI 3.0 once it debuts stateside?
