Verizon Wireless Introduces The LG Revolution

The LG Revolution is LG’s first LTE smartphone on Verizon Wireless and it joins HTC, Motorola, and Samsung in Verizon’s lineup of 4G Android devices. The specs are high-end and powerful, but are much of the same from what we’ve been seeing with the aforementioned manufacturers. In terms of specs it features:

Key features: 4G LTE – customers can expect download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps in 4G Mobile Broadband coverage areas 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen Wi-Fi capable Mobile Hotspot capability – share 4G connection with up to 8 Wi-Fi devices DLNA, HDMI and DIVX capable Video telephony support with front-facing camera Android 2.2 technology for Google Mobile Services, including Gmail™, YouTube™, Google Talk, Google Voice and access to Android Market™ Virtual QWERTY keyboard Bluetooth® 3.0 capabilities with support for Bluetooth Profiles Supported: Headset, Hands-Free, Dial-Up Networking, Object Push, Advanced Audio Distribution (stereo), Audio/Video Remote Control, Phone Book Access, and File Transfer 16GB internal memory with microSD™ card slot with expandable memory up to 32GB Additional features: Proximity sensor instantly locks touchscreen while talking on the phone Full suite of messaging options – Text, picture, video and voice messaging; corporate and personal e-mail accounts supported 5.0-megapixel autofocus camera with flash and camcorder that includes: Five different camera resolutions and three different video resolutions Macro Mode for detailed, up-close pictures Image editor with zoom, rotate, resize, crop, added frames and stamps Customize brightness, white balance, shutter sounds, color effects and use self-timer Optimize video quality with normal, fine or super camcorder settings

It doesn’t seem to have the dual-core Tegra 2 processor found in the LG Optimus 2X, but this phone certainly has its own claim to fame with a sharp 4.3 inch touch screen, Android 2.2, rear facing and front facing cameras, and LTE connectivity. Pricing and availability information has yet to be released. Full press release can be read below:

BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Verizon Wireless and LG Mobile Phones today announced the first 4G LTE smartphone from LG, the LG Revolution. With high-speed 4G LTE connectivity that puts users in the action, LG Revolution offers complete HD support for streaming, playing and recording video multimedia while on the go. Equipped with a chic design, large 4.3-inch touchscreen and Android 2.2 platform, LG Revolution is the ideal device for users ready to experience the next level of smartphone power. “LG Revolution combines the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network with the power of Android 2.2 to deliver a blazingly fast experience,” said Marni Walden, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. “The introduction of the first 4G LTE smartphone from LG is a positive addition to our robust lineup of powerful smartphones.” The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network, launched in December 2010, is the fastest, most advanced 4G network in the United States, providing speeds up to 10 times faster than Verizon Wireless’ 3G network. Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network currently reaches one-third of all Americans, with plans to expand the network to the company’s entire 3G coverage area over the next three years. “Being an innovation and technology leader has always been a top priority for LG and we are thrilled to unveil a new level of smartphone capabilities and features,” said Tim O’Brien, vice president of marketing for LG Mobile. “LG Revolution marks the beginning of new technologies and products that will complement on-the-go consumers looking for high-speed connectivity in one compact device.” LG Revolution will be on display at CES in Verizon Wireless’ booth (#35216 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center) and in LG’s booth (#8205 in the Central Hall).
