September 20, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

LG, as you may be aware, is on a roll and is gearing up for the launch of the LU6200. If you remember, the company had recently revealed the LG Optimus Q2, a new Android slider smartphone in the Optimus series. The Korean major is now following that up with an amazing device.

The latest is that the LG Optimus LTE, a new handset from the Optimus lineup, that was codenamed LU6200, is out in the open.

The phone will be the world’s first to come up with AH-IPS LCD display technology.

The company’s first HD smartphone sports some incredible specs. The Android device comes with a large 4.5-inch screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, a powerful1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor with dual Scorpion cores, 1 GB of RAM and Adreno 220 GPU.

Going by the pictures spotted, the device  is equipped with two cameras (an 8 megapixel shooter at the rear and a 1.3 megapixel front snapper) and also supports NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, DMB, micro SD card slot and much more.

The handset comes with a special back panel that encloses the battery and micro SD card slot. On the back panel, you can see a checker square grid design with many different tones.

The device is backed by an 1830mAh battery, one of the largest smartphone batteries now available in the market. The 123g device is only 10.5 mm thin and could come with a Curved Gorilla Glass on the screen.

The phone will be seen as LG Optimus LTE on the Korean carrier U+. Out of Korea, the smartphone might be offered in a different name with slight changes in the supporting features.

As we had already told you, the company will introduce the HD version of the classic game Street Fighter IV along with device. This may be seen as an attempt to lure more people to buy the HD Android smartphone as soon as it arrives.

We will have to wait to know if this new Optimus LTE would help bring LG Mobile back to a leading position. Stay tuned for the launch and price details.
