Spectrum might be the first Android HD Smartphone by LG. It uses HD Resolution at 1280 x 720 pixels resolution on its display screen. This truly awesome. If we converted to pixels density, it might around 326ppi which mean above Retina Display. The phone’s touchscreen display with VS920 series name or known as LG Revolution 2 is manufactured by using 4.5 inches HD-IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors. Protected by Corning Gorilla Glass (from scratch-able material), the HD Display also powered with True HD Graphic Engine for smooth and clear view. In, US it would be available by this January, 19 under Verizon Wireless Carrier.
LG Spectrum VS920 also has a powerful engine installed as the brain activity process. It armored with Dual core 1.5GHz Scropion (CPU Speed) with Qualcomm MSM8660 Snapdragon S3 chipset and Adreno 220 as GPU. Although for the Android OS it not yet uses the latest version of Android series, the Ice Cream Sandwich for Android 4.0, instead it still uses Android 2.3 aka Android Gingerbread. It might be, not enough time to develop and prepare for the Ice Cream, though it would be great if the upgrade would follow for this 4.0 version.
Another bad side is that the internal memory storage only available for 4GB, although it been covered up with 16GB included microSD external storage card. The RAM uses 1GB size.
