LG Spectrum expected to arrive January 19

The successor to the LG Revolution should be on Verizon's CES agenda next week. With a load of high-end specs, it could be the carrier's strongest Android phone to date.

The LG Spectrum will fit in quite nicely with other Verizon smartphones.

The full set of hardware details for the Android-powered LG Spectrum has surfaced ahead of a rumored January 19 launch.

Droid Life has obtained leaked information that shows that Verizon could be readying CES announcements for the successor to the LG Revolution .

Hardware for the Spectrum indicates that it will be the carrier's strongest Android phone to date with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, and a 4.5-inch HD display. Rounding things out are an 8-megapixel camera, 4GB internal storage, a preinstalled 16GB microSD, and 4G LTE connectivity.

In terms of software, the LG Spectrum will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but we should see a promise for an Ice Cream Sandwich update. Preloaded apps include HD ESPN Scorecenter, Netflix HD, and tools for editing HD video. These, and many other applications, should look stunning on a massive screen that boasts a 329ppi resolution.

CNET will be in Las Vegas next week to offer early impressions if Verizon decides to announce the LG Spectrum. On a related note, we'll be keeping our eyes open for a rumored Droid 4 debut. Just recently we learned that Verizon is clearing up its shelves to make room for both models.
