LG LU2300 Details Emerging

Details are starting to emerge (translated) about a forthcoming Android-based smart phone from South Korean handset maker LG.  From the sounds of it, the LU2300 will fit well with some of the newer “super” phones like the Nexus One and Motorola Droid.

Considering they were a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance, LG hasn’t done very much with Android.  As mentioned on last night’s AndroidGuys podcast, we’re not even sure this phone will hit a US carrier.

Look for the this device to arrive in Korea sometime in April or May with the following specs:

  • Android 2.1
  • 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 3.5-inch AMOLED 800×480 touch display
  • Sliding 4-row QWERTY keyboard
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • 720p HD DivX compatible playback
  • WiFi, GPS, DMB tuner

Are there any US-based LG fans out there pining for an Android phone?

    It seems to be a very functional and nice-looking device. If it hits the US, which I hope it does, it's going to be a prime Droid challenger. Assuming it's a GSM phone and taking into consideration AT&T Android stance, T-Mobile seems to be the most likely carrier for the phone.

    If priced right, the phone can be a big success in the States.

    Kind regards,

      This is definitely a form factor we need packin' Android in the States. Even though I'm hella partial to HTC devices, LG does make some rock solid product.

    Where's the back button? And the menu button? Other than that it looks like a pretty nice piece of hardware – it just all depends on how that QWERTY works (I'd rather have no hard keyboard than have one that I'll never use) and what kind of skin they put on it.
