LG Volt

LG has officially launched the LG Volt smartphone in Korea, and the device is a variant of the recently announced LG Spirit smartphone. This surely would cause a confusion for the names, as we already have a LG Volt in the west, where the CDMA device is limited to Virgin Mobile network, and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, but the one that is just launched, is quite different with the internal specs.

Having a 4.7-inch display with 720p resolution, the device is curvy on both, front and back. Interestingly, the display has a 3000mm radius curvature to give the front that little curve. The LG Spirit was said to be coming in two variants, and the one with 1.3 GHz processor was launched for about Rs. 14000 in India, and now, the LG Volt with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snpadragon 410 (1.2 GHz quad-core) is out in Korea, with no information about the other variant of LG Spirit.

Along with the Snapdragon 410, there is Adreno 306 GPU and 1GB of RAM. While there is 8GB internal storage, the phone has a MicroSD card slot for expansion to 32GB. On the back, there is a 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, and the front has a 1-megapixel camera.

The LG Volt supports 4G LTE connectivity, and the other options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC and Micro-USB. The smartphone is packed with a 2100 mAh. It will be Titanium and White colors, and the pricing set for it in Korea is 200000 Korean Won, which makes it to around Rs. 11300, though we expect this to be priced on a little higher side if it enters the Indian market anytime later.
