LG is expanding its LTE smartphone portfolio with the launch of the LG Optimus True HD LTE P936 across Europe.

The manufacturer will soon begin shipping the device to Germany, Portugal and Sweden as well as Hong Kong and Singapore, having already launched the high-definition handset in Korea, Japan, Canada and the US 

The LG Optimus True HD LTE sports a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 (16:9 ratio) True HD IPS touch-display, runs on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and packs an eight-megapixel camera.

A not too shabby spec list then, bar one thing. At launch the LG Optimus True HD LTE will arrive with Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread OS, as opposed to the superior Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, though an update will eventually become available.

LG has been an avid supported of LTE, having demoed the world’s first voice-to-video conversion over an LTE network at this year’s Mobile World Congress. 

Now if only the UK networks get their LTE in order, we Brits might be able to get our hands on the likes of the LG Optimus True HD LTE too.
