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:
