Over In Korea, the Snapdragon-Powered LG Maxx Phone Says Hello

Seen sporting a Cyon badge (LG's Korean phone brand), the LG Maxx LG9400 is powered by Snapdragon and the dashed dreams of anyone hoping it'd be an Android handset instead of another disappointing S-Class phone.

That Snapdragon chip from Qualcomm is actually the QSD8650 model, a little faster than the QSD8250 one that's used in most of the Snapdragon phones on the market today. The display is a 3.5-inch WVGA job, with an optical trackpad, GPS, Wi-Fi, 5.0-megapixel camera (capable of shooting HD video), DivX and T-DMB mobile TV support.

There's no word on whether it'll launch in other parts of the globe, but I bet LG won't confine it to just South Korea. [Telecoms Korea via Unwired View]
