LG Optimus Tag announced 

The LG Optimus Tag announced today has a 4.3 inch display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels so there is no HD screen on this one. The combination of such a large display and the relatively low resolution of 480 x 800 is something the Optimus Tag shared with the Nokia Lumia 900. But the Lumia has an excuse here because Windows Phone 7.5 Mango has only support for one resolution; 480x800 pixels.

LG's goal for 2012 is to offer the widest variety of LTE smartphones in the industry. Where the competitor HTC's goal for 2012 is to release fewer handsets, LG believes the opposite is a good solution.

Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO of LG Mobile said that the Optimus LTE Tag isn't just a cosmetically-enhanced version of Optimus LTE, it offers truly innovative features which we think really makes a smartphone smarter. We could not agree more. Reducing the display resolution from 720x1280 to 480x800 pixels and lowering the camera megapixel count from 8 to 5 are no enhancement at all.

Just like the Xperia SmartTags Sony Ericsson announced at CES earlier this year, LG has created NFC stickers / tags that can change the phone's settings. These NFC stickers will launch a pre-configured action or series of actions such as activate Bluetooth, GPS, launch a navigation app and increase volume when swiping the smartphone over a sticker in the car. LG call this feature LG Tag+ and this is where the phone model has got its name from.
