LG Optimus U1 said to run Ice Cream Sandwich
A new LG smartphone has been unearthed by GSM Arena, which was the recipient of an anonymous tip-off. The phone is said to be called the LG Optimus U1 and could be the first LG phone to ship with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). If accurate, this is the first phone to surface rumored to run Ice Cream Sandwich that is a non-Nexus device.
The pictures supplied to GSM Arena appear to show a device that has previously been unseen. The phone is said to be headed for Korea and for LG's own telco known as U+. A phone named the U1 would seem a likely fit for the network. All will be revealed when the phone ships as expected early in 2012.
