The upcoming LG Viper 4G was given the platinum rating by UL Environment since it complies with the sustainable requirements while allowing environmentally conscious consumers to become more eco-friendly with the device. According to Sprint the packaging used for the LG Viper 4G is 100 percent recyclable since it is made of post-consumer paper while the device itself contains fifty percent recycled plastics.
The LG Viper 4G will feature a four-inch touchscreen display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 5MP camera, 1GB RAM, and 32GB internal memory that can be expanded through a microSD memory card. Users of the device will also have access to 50GB of cloud storage for free.
The upcoming device will feature the Gingerbread Android 2.3 OS and will also come with a number of features including NFC technology, the Google Wallet, video chatting and HD gaming. The LG Viper 4G can also be used as a mobile hotspot that can support five devices simultaneously using both 3G as well as 4G LTE connectivity.
The LG Viper 4G will be the first smartphone to use the 4G LTE network of Sprint, which has yet to be launched. Due to this the device will use its CDMA mode for its default network connection. The LTE capabilities can be used by users of the device once the 4G LTE network is activated by the service provider.
