A couple of weeks ago, back in April and after seven consecutive quarters of declining sales figures, LG announced that the company would not be increasing or developing any further its range of Windows Phone handset. In line with this the details of a new handset have been leaked which supports the official company line that LG is focusing its efforts on the Android platform.
The recent leak has the handset designated as the LG LS970 Eclipse 4G LTE comprised of a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm quad-core Krait processor (Snapdragon S4 series) with an Adreno 320 GPU driving the 4.67-inch WXGA (1280×768) LCD TFT display. Memory is rumoured to be 2GB SDRAM, 16GB storage, a 13MP main camera backed up by a fairly standard 1.3MP front-facing unit. The battery is shown as 2100mA capacity. The whole device is slated to be a mere 8.6mm thick. All this adds up to one of the thinnest, most powerful handsets rumoured thus far.
Could this be the handset that turns LG’s fortunes around?
