LG Optimus LTE Tag to accompany Optimus Vu at the MWC

LG has announced its second Android running mobile phone, the Optimus LTE Tag which is arriving this weekend at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) along with the Optimus Vu that we saw yesterday. 


As the name suggests the LG Optimus LTE Tag will have the LTE radio on-board and also be Near Field Communication (NFC) capable. LG will with the device provide sticky NFC sheets called the LG Tag+ by which can be used by users to switch between various profiles modes. For example stick the Car mode NFC sheet in your car, bring the LTE Tag near it and turn on the car mode profile, use Bluetooth, turn on navigation and much more.

Going by the specs the LG Optimus LTE Tag has a 4.3-inch IPS display with brightness of 650 nits and display WVGA resolution of 800×480. It will run on a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, have 16 GB of internal memory, Android 2.3 Gingerbread (Android ICS upgrade will be available later). The device is just 142 grams in weight and has a dimension of 126.5 x 67.9 x 9.53mm. There is 5 MP auto focus shooter with LED Flash at the back supported by a 1.3 MP camera at the front for video calls and battery of 1700 mAh.

As we said earlier the device will come with LG Tag+ for NFC and the company will also be providing some blank Tag+ so that users can program them as per their needs. So it’s will be interesting to see this NFC and LTE capable device accompany the 5 inch Galaxy Note competitor, the Optimus Vu at the MWC in Barcelona on the coming weekend.
