AT&T has just announced their third 4G LTE smartphone, and it’s the LG Nitro. But besides for packing in 4G LTE, the LG Nitro is also AT&T’s first smartphone to pack in a True HD display. The LG Nitro HD has a 4.5-inch True HD AH-IPS display (Advanced High-Performance In-Plane Switching) which has support for resolutions up to 1280 X 720 pixels. The display is also a 500 nit display, so that means that it will be viewable in direct sunlight. Furthermore, its RGB stripe pixels promise to deliver super accurate true-to-life color rendering. A true 720P HD display, combined with support for 4G LTE, means that this is one Android smartphone that is begging to stream and playback HD movies on.
Yet, despite packing in such a large cutting edge display, the LG Nitro HD manages to stay nice and slim, measuring 5.27” X 2.67” X 0.41. The device comes with an 8MP HD camera and a total of 20GB of memory, with 4GB on-board, and a 16GB microSD card included in the box. The Nitro HD also comes with Wi-Fi Direct technology and DLNA features for wireless HD content streaming options.
The LG Nitro HD will be available on December 4th for $249.99 with a two year contract. And don’t forget to check out our reviews of AT&T’s other 4G LTE smartphones, the HTC Vivid and Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket.
