Being touted as the InTouch Max for "serious smartphone users", it is LG's first attack on the higher-end Android marke,t with the latest Android 2.1 OS on board, a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard for easy emailing.
Under the hood it impresses too, with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, DivX support and a 5 megapixel camera with geotagging.
There will also be a "commitment" to Augmented Reality, with AR apps built-in as standard.
The handset is set to be released in Korea this month or next, with no firm details on a wider release as yet. We'd expect with the Android competition building from the likes of HTC and big-rival Samsung, LG can't afford to not deliver the LU2300 to the UK.
As always, we'll keep you updated with anything we hear.
