The LG Viper LTE is a 4G/LTE smartphone that will come to the Sprint network. The handset has got its hands-on by Intomobile. The handset sports a 4-inch WVGA NOVA display and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
The LG Viper LTE also packs a VGA front-facing camera, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, and NFC with Google Wallet support for convenient payment on the go. The handset is actually thicker than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus which recently has got lots of presses. Despite the thickness, the Viper still feels pretty light in hands according to Intomobile.
If you’re an eco-friendly user, you’d love this handset as 35% of the plastics used to make it are recycled. The demo unit that got the hands-on still running the Android Gingerbread but the company rep has indicated that the UI isn’t yet final as the company is adding more effort to brush up the UI.
A little downside of the LG Viper LTE is it has only 512MB of RAM, which is definitely on the low side while compared to many smartphones are shipped with 1GB of RAM these days. The design of the Viper is also kept simple with the back side covered in a brushed metal. Pricing and availability are still unknown. Intomobile have more hands-on photos.
