The LG Revolution is a finalist for the E-Tech awards that will be given out at the CTIA tradeshow in mid-month. This high-end Android OS smartphone has yet to be released, but it's presence on this list is a strong indication that this is about to change.
This model is going to be one of the first to support Verizon's 4G LTE wireless network. It will also feature an unusually large touchscreen and front-facing camera.
LG Revolution Overview
The Revolution is going to have a bar shape with a 4.3-inch touchscreen.
It will be powered by a 1 GHz Cortex-A8 processor, and run Google Android OS 2.2 (Froyo); whether or not it will be upgradeable to 2.3 (Gingerbread) at some point remains to be seen.
As one of the first smartphones with the 4G standard LTE, the Revolution will offer data transfer speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps for downloads and 2 to 5 Mbps upload speeds under real world conditions.
LG's smartphone will also include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, plus software to allow it to become a mobile hotspot to share its 4G connection with up to eight other Wi-Fi enabled devices.
It's also going to include a rear-facing, 5 megapixel camera and a front-facing, 1.3 megapixel camera.
The Revolution will also feature 16 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot for up to 32 GB of additional storage, and an HDMI video-out port.
More LG Models Coming
There are actually three LG phones on the list of finalists for this round of the Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards. However, the Revolution is only one of these that has been officially announced. The other two appear simply as "LG Mobile Phones".
Clearly, this company intends to announce a pair of additional models at the CTIA tradeshow, which kicks off March 22.
