According to the folks over at Pocketnow, the latest mobile from LG – the Optimus LTE2, may soon be coming to Verizon. South Koreans are already enjoying the handset since its release last month. The handset was released with 2GB of RAM in South Korea and it did take some of the spotlight off the Samsung Galaxy S3 announcement which was made in London given that the Galaxy S3 showcased then only had 1GB RAM.
Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 may face stiff competition from LG Optimus LTE2
The West may not have long to wait to find out if extra memory boosts the experience on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich system. Recently documents have been revealed that show the inner workings of the VS930 handset which is more than likely the handset that Verizon will offer to their customers.
This is also the handset that has been seen in listings on GFC which may mean that there are plans for the phone to be used in Europe. The numbers and letters related to handsets can often be confusing as they are different based on providers. In this case VS are the letters that LG uses in relation to Verizon for identification. However if this is the case one has to ask why it is listed as having GSM and UMTS frequencies which are used on European networks. One answer is that Verizon is trying to offer global roaming with all of their new phones. Whether the handset will be available in more markets will remain to be seen.
The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 is also rumored to come with 2GB RAM after a recent announcement by Docomo in Japan showed us a 2GB RAM packing Galaxy S3 with LTE support. We’ll keep you posted as more develops.
