Remember when we first leaked information about an unannounced LG device a few days ago called the LG LS970? Well, the same source for that has gotten even more information for us. The device will be internally known as the “G,” but may have the production name of “Eclipse 4G LTE.” On top of that name, our source leaked exact specs for the device— more than what we could ever ask for.
The device will contain the highly coveted APQ8064 chipset. This is a 28nm 1.5 GHz Qualcomm quad-core Krait processor (Snapdragon S4 series) with an equally exciting Adreno 320 GPU. This is by far the best CPU that has been announced to date and the LG Eclipse will have it.
On top of this amazing CPU/GPU combo will be 16GB of internal storage, a 16Gb of SDRAM, 2100 mAh battery, 4.67-inch WXGA (1280×768) LCD TFT display, 13-megapixel camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and only 8.6mm thick. And of course, this will be heading to Sprint with 4G LTE capabilities. We know that LG was the first to introduce a phone with 2GB of RAM, but 16GB of SDRAM seems a little far-fetched and it’s possibly a typo. Update: turns out we’re looking at 16 Gigabits of RAM, meaning about 2 Gigabytes of RAM. 2GB confirmed! However, our source wasn’t done just yet. He was able to get a picture of the rear side of the device.
The first thing we noticed was that it has a hole in it. This is probably to test the LTE modem or possibly the GPS. Other than that, it has flat black plastic backing with a major camera hump at the top. It looks very similar to the Motorola RAZR design, minus the Kevlar material. He did reconfirm the 4th quarter release schedule for the device. But with this CPU, I don’t mind waiting. What do you guys think?
