LG Viper LTE

Sprint’s LTE network isn’t yet up and running, but the carrier is still using CES to show off some forthcoming smartphones destined to run on its second crack at a 4G network. Along with the previously announced Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Now Network will also be carrying the LG Viper. A modified version of the MetroPCS Connect 4G, Viper sports a 4″ WVGA (800 x 480) display with “Nova LCD” technology for improved brightness and readability. Viper also will feature a 1.2Ghz dual-core¬†processor, ¬†5 MP rear-facing camera and a front camera for video chat applications.

According to PCMag’s Sascha Segan, who got some early hands-on time with a pre-production version of the device, it also features NFC technology, making it a prime candidate for the Google Wallet mobile payment service. Look for Viper to launch in the middle of this year at a slightly lesser price than the flagship Galaxy Nexus.
