Verizon LG Revolution Photo Revealed; Speculations Confirmed

May 18, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you have been tracking news of the LG Revolution, you might be aware that the device is almost ready for the roll out. The Verizon-bound LG Revolution smartphone has now been spotted in the wild, confirming chances of an arrival soon.

Going by the leak, the device reveals the same custom interface as most of LG’s other new smartphones do – think of the Optimus Black for instance. This is the third 4G LTE-capable device of the carrier. Check out the snap and you will know what we mean. The smartphone will run on an Android 2.2 and not Android 2.3 as you all had wanted.

LG Revolution can boast of being the first Android phone to support Netflix. The machine sports a single core processor and WVGA display. The smartphone will also pack a 16GB microSD card in the box. The fresh pictures reveal a black tinged device and not a silver shade.

The snaps show the device without a SIM card and so no information on browsing and internet features could be gathered. However, as most of the earlier speculations have managed to be true, we can expect that the networking features will also adhere to the earlier reports.

Based on an earlier tip we got, the Revolution will override Google search with Bing, but will support 4G hotspot, DLNA media sharing, and an optional wireless charging case.

Even at this stage when almost all is revealed, the greatest mystery remains – the price. As we speculate, we have to remember that the carrier has been practicing a pricing of $250 or more on 4G phones and Revolution will most likely follow this road. The Revolution will ship on May 26, that’s exactly the same day as the Xperia Play will be landing. Are you going for it? Please leave your comments.
