Posted on Feb 20 2012 - 10:51am by Editorial Staff

LG unveiled its newest add-on to its LTE smartphone line-up for the Korean market, but there are no words or any plans for other countries: the Optimus LTE Tag advances LG’s vision of offering the most diverse collection of LTE devices for all types of customers.

The Optimus LTE Tag gets its name from a unique new feature, LG Tag+, which uses NFC (Near Field Communication) to communicate with special stickers or “tags” that can be programmed to automatically change the phone’s settings. Swiping a tag upon entering the office could put the Optimus LTE Tag in silent mode and activate Wi-Fi. A tag on the car dashboard could be programmed to turn on Bluetooth, GPS and raise the volume. The options are limitless.

The Optimus LTE Tag is available in white. Running a 1.2GHz Dual-Core processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread (with the option to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich later) and 4.3-inch IPS display, the Optimus LTE Tag is the ideal multimedia environment. The Optimus LTE, released in October last year, is currently available in the US, Canada, Japan, and South Korea.
