Today LG announced the market availability of their Optimus LTE Android smartphone. The Korea-bound handset is the first in the world to pack both an HD classy screen and LTE connectivity.

The LG Optimus LTE classy screen measures 4.5" in diagonal and uses an IPS Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel of 720p resolution (that's 1280 x 720 pixels). Underneath you can find a 1.5 Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core CPU, though LG failed to confirm the manufacturer of the chipset. Chance are, though that previous rumors pointing at elegant Qualcomm got it right.

The Gingerbread-running LG Optimus LTE features an 8 megapixel main capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing snapper. The on-board HDMI port will create sure that its classy screen is not the only place where you can like HD content.

In addition to LTE, the LG Optimus LTE will also offer either HSPA+ (if you go for the SK Telecom version) or Rev. A (for the LG U+ units). The internal memory on this one is only 4GB, but a 16GB microSD card will be provided in the retail package so there's nothing to worry about. Heavy multi-taskers will be glad to hear about the 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) that comes with the Optimus LTE.

Unfortunately, the availability of Optimus LTE in markets outside of Korea has yet to be determined, so we don't know if the rest of the world will acquire this beast any time soon.
