LG prepping second Android mobile phone

LG is planning to follow up its forthcoming debut handset on the Android mobile phone platform, the LG GW620, with a more powerful device.

According to reports, a senior executive at LG has revealed that the handset will be home to a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and will run on the latest version of the Android operating system.

Precise release dates are unconfirmed, but the new phone is expected to go on sale in South Korea during the second quarter of next year and will be marketed as an upgrade of the LG GW620.

Google’s Android 2.0 upgrade, also known as Éclair, will reportedly dramatically improve the functionality of handsets powered by the operating system.

Anticipated improvements include smoother and faster multi-tasking – allowing users to access multiple applications simultaneously with minimum lag - and an enhanced mobile internet experience.

Features of the GW620 include a five megapixel camera, a touchscreen user interface and advanced social networking functions.
