LG Spectrum 2 with Wireless Charging Available Today
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.
The LG Spectrum 2 fills the mid-range smartphone category for Verizon Wireless. What the hardware lacks in style, the Android operating system from Google and user interface customizations from LG make up for in raw functionality.
LG brings its heavy artillery to the smartphone wars for the first time with the Optimus G. This flagship Android smartphone boasts a quad-core processor, 13-megapixel camera, and of course LTE 4G for Sprint.
