Earlier reports pointed to a possible September 6 release of Samsung Galaxy Stellar and now it looks like Verizon is going to launch another Android smartphone on the same date, the LG Intuition 4G LTE.
Although we thought the Intuition would hit shelves on September 15, several Verizon internal documents confirm that the handset will go on sale starting September 6.
There’s no word on the price yet, but the specs sheet of the smartphone recommends it as a mid-range device, so we expect this one to go on sale for around 150 - 200 USD on a two-year agreement.
Those unfamiliar with the LG Intuition
should know that this is the CDMA-enabled version of the Optimus Vu, which is about to make its debut in Europe as well.
However, the Intuition comes with a slightly different hardware configuration, which is explained by the fact that it offers LTE technology, which is not supported by the Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset that powers the European model.
So, expect LG Intuition 4G LTE to be equipped with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, which is complemented by an Adreno 220 graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM.
When it comes to storage, the Intuition 4G LTE
offers plenty of space, though it lacks a microSD card slot for memory expansion.
Still, 32GB of internal memory should be more than enough for users who prefer to store all their favorite music on their phones.
In addition, the smartphone boasts an enhanced 8-megapixel rear photo snapper, which features LED flash, autofocus and full HD (1080p) video recording capabilities. There’s also a secondary 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls.
The phone comes with the same 5.0-inch HD-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display, as the Optimus Vu, along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP and Dolby mobile sound enhancement.
