It looks like AT&T is not the only carrier in the US to launch an LG Android phone these days. U.S. Cellular has just announced the immediate availability of the ICS-powered LG Splendor smartphone.
The handset is available online, starting today, for only $79.99 USD (60 EUR) with a new two-year agreement and $100 USD (80 EUR) mail-in rebate. Check it out here
Keep in mind that U.S. Cellular has a limited time offer that provides customers who purchase any new smartphone in its portfolio with a free Alcatel One Touch Premiere
after $50 USD (40 EUR) mail-in rebate that comes as a MasterCard Debit Card.
LG Splendor has been confirmed to arrive at all U.S. Cellular store locations across the country on September 12, but until then customers will only be able to grab this one online.
When it comes to specs, LG Splendor is a mid- to low-end smartphone powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
The phone is equipped with a single-core processor clocked at 1 GHz and packs 2GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
It is also worth mentioning that LG Splendor
comes with a free 4GB microSD memory card in the sale package.
The Splendor sports a 4.3-inch qHD IPS capacitive touchscreen display that supports 540 x 960 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
There’s also a 5-megapixel camera on the back of the phone, which features autofocus, LED flash and HD (720p) video recording, as well as a secondary VGA front-facing camera for video calls.
Software-wise, LG Splendor comes with a slew of Amazon apps, including Amazon Audible, Amazon IMDb, Amazon Kindle, Amazon MP3, Amazon Shopping and Amazon Zappos. It also embeds SmartShare and QuickMemo technologies, which are meant to improve users’ overall experience.
