Yesterday LG announced the new LG Optimus Vu, and today we have another new Android device from the company, the LG Optimus Tag, which comes with NFC capabilities.
The LG Optimus LTE Tag features a 4.3 inch IPS multi-touch touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, processing is provided by a dual core 1.2GHz processor and it features 16GB of eMMC storage.
The LG Optimus LTE Tag also comes with dual cameras, up front there is a 1.3 megapixel camera for video chat and on the back there is a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and an LED flash for photos and video.
The device comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, plus a 1,700 mAh battery, LG Tag+, MGL, DLNA, and LG have said that the Optimus Tag will get an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at a later date.
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.
LG haven’t as yet given us any information on a launch date or pricing, although we can expect to see the device at this years MWC 2012 which takes place in Barcelona later this month.
