LG announces their most powerful smartphone ever - the LG Optimus LTE

LG, in South Korea, announced their most powerful smartphone ever, yes it's even powerful than the Optimus 2X. The LG Optimus LTE, apparently, will be available first in the South Korean market and, hopefully, would be rolled out to other markets because we like them smartphones don't we? Anyway, there are actually two Optimus LTEs that are the same in specs and whatnots but their design are a different. The phone pictured above (left) is the LG Optimus LTE SU640 which will be offered by SK Telecom and on the right is the LG Optimus LTE LU6200 which will land on LG U+. The smartphone is going to directly rival Samsung' Galaxy S II LTE HD and you'll find out why by the specs of the Optimus LTE.
