LG fans will be excited to hear that the successor to Verizon Wireless' Revolution may be on its way. A leaked press shot of the yet-to-be announced LG Spectrum has appeared. Although you can't tell much from the pictures, Pocketnow believes the phone will feature 4G LTE connectivity, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 720p HD resolution display, and an eight megapixel camera. From the leaked press shot, it appears that the camera will protrude from the back of the device. If you're familiar with AT&T's new LG Nitro, this phone appears to be quite similar, albeit branded for Verizon Wireless.

Since the phone has yet to be formally announced, details are rather sparse at the moment. However, there have been rumors around the web that suggest the Spectrum will feature a 4.5-inch display and an ultra-thin design. The phone may also be a global device. With this phone, as well as the RAZR, Rezound, and Galaxy Nexus, Verizon Wireless' winter lineup is shaping up nicely.

Hopefully LG can step up their mobile game. I know they had issues with the G2x on Tmobile which is already end of life. Plus some of their other phones had issues too.

i like all the phones but lets hope this isnt another Thunderbolt/bionic/nexus situation. But i think they are pumping out to many phones. They need to slow down a bit. They are going to confuse and frustrate the average consumer

I still would not consider another LG phone until I see an ICS release for a current phone. LG's software dept has been god awful.

Big Red certainly is getting a lot of nice devices. If not for their prices being so much higher than my Sprint plan I would certainly be going with their line-up and network. I just can give up unlimited everything though for 4 phones @ 140 for a limited plan that will cost the same for only 2 phones.

1.5 ghz of proccesing speed is a huge amount of capability in a phone, i think as soon as get one with 5+ hours of battery and  a minimum of 2.6 ghz/ dual core proccessing power, their will be nothing you can't do on a phone.

The design does look thin, would be a great addition for anyone :)
