MetroPCS LG Optimus M+ gains boosted specs (Images)
The Android platform is great for providing users a cheaper way to own their first smartphone, or allowing those on more of a budget to own one. Yesterday we told you about the ZTE Score M handset being released on the MetroPCS carrier, and today we have news about the LG Optimus M+ that gains some boosted specs.
It seems that LG are in the process of upgrading the first Android handset that was made available to the regional carrier MetroPCS, and the upcoming device has been spotted by the team over at Pocketnow. While the device won’t set the world on fire with regards to specs, it is an improvement on the model that it is replacing, and it won’t break the bank either to own one.
First up the HVGA screen has been increased from 3.2-inches to 3.5-inches, but it is being claimed the resolution will be the same on the new model, and the camera has gone up from 3.2 megapixels to a more respectable 5 megapixels. The handsets Bluetooth connection has seen a bump up to 3.0, while many users of such a device won’t notice any difference.
The LG Optimus M+ will feature an 800MHz processor that will come running Android’s Gingerbread operating system, and should be available to customers shortly by joining the more expensive LG Connect 4G and LG Esteem on the carrier. It will be very unlikely if the LG Optimus M+ will ever receive the Android Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade considering the size of the processor, but for the price the handset is likely to be offered at, Gingerbread isn’t too bad.
Currently there are no details regarding pricing for the device, but it is likely it will priced around the same as the original at $99.
