LG Outs A Brand New Android Phone To Top Anything On the Market (For A While Anway)

I think LG can learn from some of its competitors as far as naming a device goes.  The LG LU6200 is quite a mouthful and hard to remember.  But its impressive specs are not hard to forget.

And are some of what we're seeing:

  • 8 MP
  • 1.5 GHz dual core chip
  • 4.5 in screen
  • 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage
  • NFC
A couple of its specs I like to separate from the above.  
  • LTE - I wonder what the battery life will be like.
  • And drum roll, please: 720p!!!
This device has already topped the specs of the Galaxy S II and certainly could be in contention with, not only other Android devices, but probably the next iPhone and other mobile platforms as well.

However, as we all know by now, specs isn't everything.  LG had a pretty impressive device for the T-Mobile that really went nowhere.  

Having said that, the 720p is very enticing.  Having come from the Retina Display on the iPhone and iPod touch, it is a beauty.  I figure 720p should be just as impressive and really up the ante for everything else on the market.  

Right now, 800x480 is the default resolution on the high-end devices.  That has been pretty much the case for the last couple of years.  It's time that the Android makers make 720p the default resolution on the high-end handsets.
