Bits of the news about the LG Optimus G housing a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor are official. So what if it’s only the part about Qualcomm supplying the chip for the Korean manufacturer’s upcoming smartphone which may go by any other name besides the aforementioned?
Eager to talk about the collaboration, Qualcomm may have let slip more information than LG intended to offer. The device in question is touted to deliver 3G/LTE multi-mode capabilities. It is going through the production process currently, with commercial availability pegged for September this year, in Korea. Following the launch, other countries across the globe may also expect to welcome the phone.
Going by Android Community who ferreted out this information via AsiaToday, the smartphone being talked about could be the LG Optimus G. Or not. At this point of time, rumors about an LG handset with a quad core processor that accommodates VoLTE services can hardly be construed in another way. According to the story, the likelihood of the device embedding a Tegra 3 chip hardly arises if the phone is to support VoLTE.
There’s not much to go on about in terms of specifications. The leaked information seems to insist that we should expect a 4.7-inch True IPS touchscreen on the front panel and the Ice Cream Sandwich OS onboard. While there’s no mention of the internal hoarding space, 2GB RAM could be packed into the device. And the best bit of the unconfirmed details says that the handset may sport a neat little 13MP camera on the back panel.
It’d obviously be too optimistic to expect anything along the lines of the LG Optimus G price and release date details as of now. Wish we could at least get a proper confirmation about the name of the forthcoming LG smartphone with the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
