LG Revolution

So if the HTC Thunderbolt for Verizon doesn't quite excite you anymore, and you have been waiting for more information about the LG Revolution, you will be excited to find out that it has strolled through the FCC. For those of you who forget exactly what the Revolution will have under the hood, here is a brief run down:

  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • 1 GHz MSM8255 Snapdragon (Scorpion)
  • 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 16GB internal with microSD slot that supports up to 32GB
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 5MP rear camera with Auto-focus and flash and front-facing camera

While yes, this does not mean that there is a predetermined release date, it is one step further in the releasing process. [FCC] Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

I actually like the way this phone looks... and its big, and simply sleek looking. and Ive been over the thunderbolt since the day it was announced. its just a bigger incredible!!!

russell5 says:

I agree i love how this phone looks. If this phone really comes with bing i wont get it though. at this point which ever comes first will probably be my choice. either thunderbolt or the lg

johnstm15 says:

I loved the incredible so ill love the thunderbolt!

EvanJ18 says:

....not the same as an incredible...at all.

strikethree says:

It's definitely not a bad phone but what's the price?

I mean, if you're getting a new phone then why this one or the Thunderbolt? In a couple of months, these specs will be "mid-tier" once the dual core options come out in full force.

Not many applications are optimized for dual core but the market will definitely grow. Better to have the option now so you don't have to change your phone that quickly. (Plus, quad core is only a year or so away so the single core will look even more behind)

Sounds pretty close to the evo I'v been rockin for almost a year. No thanks.

El Jefe says:

The specs are comparable to the EVO, but there are A LOT of people who tend to steer clear of everything HTC because they need their phones to last through a whole day. This is a nice phone for those people.

Ricom1 says:

Great! Not necessarily that I want this phone (but I may), but more importantly, this may be a kick in the pants for the TB. At least now there is another choice on the horizon.

MrNate says:

Good to see the LTE phones are moving ahead, but honestly, my Incredible is about the same specs. Bring on the Dual-Core phones, then I'll be getting excited!

ssethv says:

completely agree... but it still looks nice... I love my incredible(CM7 nightly, of course), i just wish it was a little bit wider, just a little bit :)

mekman says:

it's got the MSM8655 not MSM8255

Copying is the biggest form of flattery. LG makes a pretty good looking EVO knock off I must say.

dm33 says:

You've got to be kidding.

They are all knockoffs of the iPhone 3G. After thats they're all just a slab of glass with a few buttons. How much variety can you expect?

Even the iPhone is a rip of some European phone that was out before the original iPhone even surfaced

mechaphil says:

Isn't this the phone that was being used as the example for Android running Netflix with the new Snapdragon processors?

this phone looks a lot like the end result of the Incredible and the Droid X from a one night stand...#imjustsaying

LiquidAppo says:

So a Thunderbolt from LG?

It is very stylish and attractive plus it has got the android feature that's the plus point of it.reseller hosting

Ugh. All of these 4.3" devices. Some people like the 3.7" and 4" range.

Looks like the Incredible S will be my only choice
