LG take Android to the next level with the LU2300

I’m a big fan of the LG GW620 InTouch Max. It was a great introduction to Android for first time smart phone users, with many fans including the Gadget Show’s John Bentley. Now it looks like LG have decided to create an android phone for the serious smartphone user.

Allow me to introduce the InTouch Max’s big brother, the LG LU2300. With a 1GHz processor as standard it packs enough of a punch to compete for the affections of android smartphone users with the likes of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and the HTC Legend.

Features:

  • 3.5inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 1GHz Snapdragon Processor
  • 4 line landcape slide QWERTY keyboard
  • DivX support
  • Wi-Fi
  • DMB Tuner
  • 5 megapixel camera complete with geo-tagging

The word on the street also says that it has a commitment to Augmented Reality, with built in AR apps as standard.

It is due for release in Korea in April or May this year and we can only hope that it is such a big hit that it is given a wider release soon!

    another load of bollocks from the LG team

  • Kupz

    This has upset me some what, so we are the guinea pigs for testing on. I have my lg gw620 on contract for 18 months i got it thinking it was future proof so now im stuck with it till it ends. Im with mikimyky i would never get another lg phone as this is just not what i thought they would do. Giving customers what they want??? not what they did for this customer!

  • Mikimyky

    I got email from LG, shame on LG. I will never buy LG phone again.

    Dear customer!
    GW620 impossible to upgrade till 1.6 or 2.00 or higher Android versions, cause of function buttons. Androin beginning from 1.6 operate with 5 buttons, not 3 like GW620.

    Best regards,

    LG.

    interesting…Basically LG have used the GW620 as a stepping stone and now have a new phone to give the customers what they want

  • lgblog

    No news no the GW620 update as yet, but we will cover the news as soon as it breaks!

  • Mikimyky

    Is there any news on updating GW620 to 1.6 or 2.x?

  • http://twitter.com/partha06 Partha Goswami

    Here is very few points, why lg need to give upgrade
    1, All Apps like many Gmail accounts not support in this version
    2. Google apps like google earth, google map 4.2 and others apps like flash player donot support,

    if you compare Android and WM, you will find maximum apps you can upgrade and install weather it is WM 5, 6, 6.1 but here Android has limitation , So in one PDA or Smartphone a users will look into this and that is why its most important Android phone at least..

    Thanks

    I am sorry to hear about your recent mishaps with your LG InTouch Max GW620. Please rest assured that LG is committed to provide excellent service throughout the lifecycle of our products and that we have taken on board all forms of feedback, such as this one, to ensure that we can provide an Android experience that you can be proud of in the future.

  • Boycott LG Androids

    NEVER buy an Android from LG. After the lies and misleading information about the GW620, I will NEVER again buy from LG. They LIED and told us they would provide 1.6 by SPRING 2010. Then they said END OF SPRING…now the latest is that they will send to Rogers for TESTING in SEPTEMBER! They also LIED and said they will not upgrade further beyond 1.6 due to hardware limitations, yet the DEV community has 100% evidence that this phone can run 2.1 and 2.2. LIARS.

  • Partha Goswami

    but should have option for upgrade os

  • lgblog

    Have not heard any official news on this. There are a lot of rumours around this on the internet. But i have not heard anything from LG to corroborate these as truth

    Oh! Your blog is great! I like it

  • sparklehedgehog

    will this be getting the 2.2 froyo OS update applied prior to release or at any point after release as i have noticed LG are not keen on updating phones after release?

    Also, what size internal memory will this sport as apps are not able to be placed to an SD card still on unrooted phones running 2.1?

  • lgblog

    Hi,
    thanks for your message. The GW620 was always intended to be an entry level android phone for first time smart phone users. And when it is viewed in that way it is a good phone (the reviews here – http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-… – are indicative of this). Certain features have been left out to cut back on cost (bluetooth for example) whilst the use of android 1.5 is an example of a way of keeping the phone simple for first time users.
    When you consider the other phones available in the same price bracket as the GW620 (like the Samsung Galaxy Portal) then you realize that these specifications are fairly standard, whilst the GW620 has some additional features like the slide out 5 line QWERTY keyboard.
    Thanks

    Hi…I own a lg gw620 and it is a good cellphone but,but have some big minuses…first android 1.5 and no chance for upgrading to 1.6 or higher, bluetooth is not working for file-transfer,video recording better without it,and when you consider this in the end I think LG can fix all this…at least some of this minuses otherwise they looking to me like very amateur company…they release a phone then thats it…lets go to new one…and what about people who own for example gw620,we are let empty-handed for improvement and sincerely I am thinking this is my last LG product.I hope LG can prove me wrong.

    Hi Ben,
    I personally use a GW620 and have no problems with it. Yes android 1.5 is slower than the newer versions, but this is always going to be the case.
    The GW620 was always an entry level smart phone available on much cheaper contracts when compared to other smart phones.
    Thanks

  • Ben

    Basically LG have used the GW620 as a stepping stone and now have a new phone to give the customers what they want but for all of us on 18 month contracts with an LG GW620 we are stuck on 1.5 and LG don't care about it. They are giving 1.6 to Rogers users but what about everyone else???

  • lgblog

    i'm afraid the full specifications aren't released yet, but keep checking back as we will have them up as soon as they are released!
    Thanks

  • lgblog

    The full specs have not been officially released yet unfortunately

    Where can we see the full specifications

  • tolemaC

    ohm! I understand you now.

    Ok, thanks any way.

  • Ian

    I like the qwerty. raised buttons, nicccee

  • lgblog

    We were a little ahead of ourselves announcing the specs as they may be subject to change before the release date! Apologies…
    Also RE android update on the GW620; there are no plans for an update in the UK on this. Have heard rumours about this happening in Canada, but they may just be rumours.

  • tolemaC

    I have found the missing text:

    “LG are showing their commitment to listening to the opinions of their customers by not only upgrading from android 1.5 to 2.1, but also by replacing the GW620’s resistive touchscreen with a 3.5inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, as these were both flagged as weaker points on the GW620.”

    What happen with it?

  • tolemaC

    I think I could read something about Android 2.1 update in others phones (GW620) yesterday.

    Has been this post modified?
    Will Android 2.1 update be available for GW620 in the future?

    Thanks in advance.
