LG Spectrum leaks, destined for Verizon LTE
As this year has gone on, 720p displays have become more and more prevalent. And even though few of the rumored devices are actually available right now, the HD resolution resolution is already becoming standard for high end devices. LG has apparently noticed this, and according to some new leaks is preparing a new 720p smartphone, the LG Spectrum, as their next flagship device.
So far, the image to the left is the only real information we have on the device, but the source of the leak also had some specifications to share. Among the highlights are the previously mentioned 720p display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera with HD video capture, and Verizon LTE connectivity.
We can also tell from the image that the hardware appears to be slightly thinner than the previous version, and LG has added some nice looking Droid like angles to the design. Less promising is the sight of capacitive buttons below the screen, which means that the device is likely running Gingerbread. This could obviously change by the time of the release, but for now is likely to be a sticking point.
Even with only Gingerbread, the LG Spectrum still has specifications to rival the Galaxy Nexus, and all the other smartphones on Verizon's network. Who knows, if it gets released soon enough, it could even steal some of the Galaxy Nexus's thunder.[PocketNow]
