LG Revolution Spotted in the Wild; Froyo OS Might Make Way for Gingerbread Post-Launch

April 14, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Hinting that the LG Revolution is one step closer to reaching your hands, a recent leak has spotted the handset in the wild. Though we had seen the device at the Consumer Electronics Show last January, there was no official word on when the Revolution will hit retail shelves. However, the upcoming smartphone from LG has reportedly made it into the hands of the testers which eventually helped us have a glimpse of the device.

As you know, the 4G capable phone from LG is heading for  Big Red’s LTE network as announced earlier by the carrier. The LG Revolution, which features a 4.3 inch display, however comes running on the Android 2.2 Froyo platform.

Despite its 4G capabilities and stunning display, the OS being Froyo could be disappointing. We know you would have loved Gingerbread running the device, as Froyo sounds a little antique these days.

May be, an OS update could be in the offing within a short span of time once it hits the network. Another feature included is the TouchWiz looking User Interface. Also, despite running on Android 2.2, it sports Microsoft’s Bing as the default search agent which may well turn down the spirits of Google lovers. You can get the full specs here.

We guess we need to wait a bit more to know what is on the pricing front. Stay tuned as we go get it for you.
