Recently, mobile phone maker LG Electronics announced the availability of a series of devices for the high-end of the market, but it seems that it might soon unveil some aimed at more budget-conscious users.
Among them, we can count the LG LS730, which is said to sport the code name of Snapshot, and which might arrive on shelves in the fourth quarter of the year.
Nothing has been officially announced on the availability of this mobile phone
, but the guys over at BriefMobile
stumbled upon blurry photos with the device, as well as some leaked info on its hardware capabilities.
Overall, it seems that the new device will be launched as an affordable phone, featuring low-end capabilities when compared to what today’s most popular handsets have to offer.
It will sport a square body when launched, with metal bands running along the edge, and it will also feature a push home button, it seems.
The handset will arrive on shelves with an 800 x 480 WVGA touchscreen display and will sport a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with autofocus, LED flash and video recording capabilities, complemented by a VGA camera on the front for making video calls.
The specs list of this device
also includes a Qualcomm MSM8655 application processor, along with Adreno 205 GPU, 768MB of RAM, and 4GB of ROM, most probably complemented by a microSD memory card slot to enable users to expand the available storage.
LG LS730 will be powered by a 1700mAh removable battery in a thin 8.8mm body. While featuring WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities, along with 3G connectivity, the device is expected to lack support for 4G networks of any kind (there’s no mention of LTE or WiMAX support, it seems).
The new mobile phone should make an appearance on shelves at Sprint, it seems, but nothing has been confirmed on this. Chances are that the US carrier is preparing it for Virgin or Boost Mobile, rumor has it.
