At Verizon's 4G event today, we got some quick demo time with LG's initial LTE offering, the Revolution. Sporting a trendy 4.3" display, the device is obviously geared towards content creation and consumption. Not only does it include a 720P-capable 5 MP camera on the back, it also makes a mark with it a 1.3 MP front facing camera for video calls.

Unfortunately, it only has a single-core processor, clocking in at 1 GHz with 512 MB RAM alongside, but that shouldn't stop it from being a fairly decent performer all around. Best of all, the version of Froyo that LG has chosen to ship the Revolution with looks relatively uncontaminated, and with merely a tinted status bar here and altered icon there, the changes seem fairly forgivable in the near-mandatory custom UI sphere of Android lately.

Full specs:

  • 1 GHz CPU
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 4.3" WVGA TFT display
  • 5 MP rear camera w/LED flash
  • 1.3 MP front facing camera
  • LTE 4G Connectivity
  • Android 2.2 w/ 2.3 to come
  • Full Skype integration

The device is set for a mid-2011 release, with more info presumably to follow closer to that time.

Below, you can find a quick hands-on video taken by Artem along with a variety of photos:

    The only phone Verizon showed off today that's worth taking a look at is the Droid Bionic. Totally awesome!

    Mid 2011 though. The Thunderbolt should be out before then, and it has similar specs except for a better camera (Thunderbolt is 8mp vs Revolution has 5mp). By mid 2011 the Bionic should be out. LG needs to ramp up their release date, the specs of the phone, or at the very least make it cheap.
