Updated: corrected number of cores from four to two.
Verizon Wireless today announced the LG Spectrum 2, an Android 4.0 smartphone that shares many features with the LG Optimus G. One feature that makes the device somewhat unique is its ability to charge wirelessly via magnetic induction with an included battery cover (charging pad sold separately). The Spectrum 2 has a 4.7-inch IPS LCD with 1280 x 720 pixels. It is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor from Qualcomm and includes an 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture and Cheese Shot, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and mobile hotspot for up to 10 devices. The LG Spectrum 2 is available online and in stores beginning today for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new agreement.
LG looks like they're releasing lots of high end devices lately, but are they high quality? The Optimus G is, but that doesnt mean anything else they make it. I just can't feel good about purchasing an LG phone based on past experiences. Right now i'm trying to decide between an LG Optimus L5, or a Samsung Galaxy W, and I have to chose the Galaxy W, mainly, becuase it's not made by LG.
