LG has just officially taken the wraps off of the Optimus LTE III, which has made some appearances in leaked images recently. As a worthy successor to the Optimus LTE II, the latest version has a 4.7-inch 720x1280 IPS display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8MP camera and a sizeable 2540mAh battery. The design falls in line nicely with other recent handsets like the mid-range L Series and Optimus G Pro, with a square design, plastic back and physical home button. On the software side we're looking at Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, along with LG's software UX tweaks and apps.
LG is teaming up with SK Telecom to release the Optimus LTE III in both black and white versions, but we'd be surprised if it ever hit the states in its current form. Our only chance at this one is likely a carrier-customized version a few months down the road.
