Rumored LG LS970 might detail LG’s answer to the Galaxy SIII

Lg-ls970-leakAbout a week ago, LG announced that they would be making a very impressive rival to Samsung's Galaxy SIII, due out sometime this month. Details were few, but what we did know is that the smartphone was going to be good. 

Now, BriefMobile has gotten a hold of images which they claim show the LG LS970, as well as some specs. While they don't mention LG's announcement, based on some of the similar specifications (such as a unique 2GB of RAM) it appears as if the LS970 is the same smartphone that LG was talking about in their previous announcement. 

According to the leak, the LS970 will include a 28nm 1.5GHz quad-core Quallcomm Krait/Snapdragon S4 series and Adreno 320 GPU, a setup that should easily rival Samsung's Exynos setup. Paired with the processor is 2GB of RAM, a 2,100mAh battery, 13MP camera, and 720p 4.67-inch display.

While this leak didn't provide any information about the OS of choice, the precious announcement said that Ice Cream Sandwich would be running on LG's next flagship.

Once again, we can't be totally sure that this leaked device is actually the same hardware that LG will announce, but it certainly seems likely. I, for one, hope so, because this LG LS970 looks like one killer device, and I can't wait for the official announcement.

  • if the specs on this phone are real than this might be my next phone. this is why i love android!! theres always something better around the corner.

  • Thats funny, some people hate Android for that exact reason. Everything you buy will be outclassed in a few months.

  • lol, true

    thats one way to look at it. I look at it as progress :)

    i love the fact that android phone makers are always trying to one up each other and i think in the end its “us” the customers who win.

    i think this phone will pave the way for all future phones to use 2 gigs of ram. i just hope that LG doesnt mess up stock ICS too much.


    thanks for this article my man if you hadnt written it i wouldnt have found out about this awesome new phone. this is gonna be a great month for mobile devices

  • “Easily rival” galaxy’s Exynos?
    Better make that easily CRUSH quad core Exynos.

    Quad core Krait would be just overly superior in every respect – close to twice the CPU power, and close to TRIPLE the GPU power.
    It’s a SoC built for high performance tablets/windows 8 laptops.
    Putting it in a phone this year would be sensational.
    Coupled with 2Gb RAM, it would scream in this phone – enough to easily double boot Ubuntu and android for example, and give you a true PC or console when you hook it up with a TV and peripherials.
