Several days ago, we saw information leak for the LG Revolution successor on Verizon Wireless — the LG Spectrum.  With an official announcement expected to occur during CES 2012, it was nice to get a heads up on the device and something we could look forward to later in January.

Without further ado, let’s discuss the LG Spectrum which was announced earlier in the day during LG’s CES press conference.  The Spectrum is a high-end Android smartphone powered by Android 2.3 with support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network.  While Gingerbread is certainly a disappointment for the Spectrum, but that is the price to pay to get the device out of the gate early.  In addition, it should be upgraded to ICS in the near future, so you will have to remain patient.

In terms of specs, it features a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.5 inch true HD display with Gorilla Glass, 8MP rear facing camera, a 1.3MP front facing camera, Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi.  In addition, it comes preloaded with ESPN SportsCenter and Netflix in HD.

LG reminds us it will be available on January 19th for $199 on a two year contract.  Considering the prices of other high-end 4G LTE smartphones on Verizon, we’ll consider the price tag of $199 very enticing.
