A few weeks ago LG announced the Optimus LTE for its home market of Korea. It didn't take too long for a video to surface from a Canadian retailer called The Source (which happens to be owned by Bell) showcasing the phone (it appears that the video has been pulled while this post was being written).  We already know about the killer display that it sports, and it also has a dual-core 1.5ghz processor, LTE bands, and a generous 1830mAh battery.

What we don't know is when it's going to be released, or if any U.S. carriers are planning on carrying it. (Though it wouldn't surprise us at all.) It looks like a great device, and goes to show that when it comes to hardware LG knows how to make a great looking phone.  While the video isn't official confirmation, it's about as close as you can get. Check it out after the break.

Bell to carry the Optimus Eye, aka Optimus LTE

This looks nice, good to see that they've considered the battery capacity on a device with this spec.

Unfortunately, since it's LG, I wouldn't consider buying it. The lack of ICS update (and in fact gingerbread) for my O2X has left a sour taste in my mouth and I no longer have any faith that LG cares about it's customers once they've taken their money.

I wouldn't touch it with a 10 ft. pole. I own a G2X and I love it but after LG's announcement that the G2X was not getting ICS I wouldn't go near any of their products EVER again. My suggestion is stay away from LG and let them die a slow death in the smartphone industry and back industry leaders like HTC and Samsung. You can at least guarantee that your less than one year old dual core handset will get an update.

Since Bell just released the HTC raider with LTE TODAY, why would anyone choose this POS?

I have an LG Rumor2 and it's a great feature phone but I've seen nothing but fail from their Smartphone lineup.

HTC Raider doesn't have a 720p display?

This (LG's Black technology) is probably the best looking display next to Samsung's SAMOLED displays...
