The LG Optimus LTE has received a face shift by renaming it as Optimus True HD LTE as a response to the dominating Samsung gadgets in the Android smartphone market. The Optimus True HD LTE- now available in US, Canada, Japan, and Korea will be launched in more countries across Europe and Asia.
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone comes with a dual core 1.5 GHz processor and an 8 MP camera. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will be provided at a later stage. The True HD IPS with 4.5-inch touchscreen display has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The 4G LTE phone will now be available in Germany, Hong Kong, Sweden, Singapore, and Portugal.
The Change of Name
So why has been the LG Optimus LTE renamed as Optimus True HD LTE? The reason is obvious- to tell people how the Optimus is better than Samsung- or it seems to be. Samsung uses PenTile technology that is technically inferior to the RGB arrangement of pixel, used in the LG Optimus LTE. Actually when it comes to higher resolutions and high definitions, the difference is not much but LG wants to stress on the fact that it uses superior quality displays.
