Two weeks ago a certain LG LS970 (Eclipse 4G LTE) leaked online, but no details on the smartphone’s availability or pricing were unveiled at that time. Today, we have another device that is likely to make its way onto Sprint’s stores.
The folks over at BriefMobile
have been tipped on the possible upcoming release of another LTE smartphone, the LG LS860, also known as LG Cayenne.
Unlike the Eclipse
, which is a top-tier Android phone, the LS860 seems more like a mid-range device, though it does come equipped with a dual-core processor.
Unfortunately, only a few of the Cayenne specs have been revealed, but more may be unveiled in the near future. Apparently, the LG LS860 will be shipped with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box.
Hardware-wise, the device is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. Most likely the phone will be based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S3 platform.
Although blurry, the picture of the phone also reveals a generous slide-out QWERTY keyboard, as well as three touch-sensitive keys (not on-screen).
Furthermore, LG LS860
sports a more than decent 4.0-inch WVGA IPS capacitive touchscreen display. As we already mentioned earlier, the smartphone offers full LTE support.
For those who are not familiar with Sprint’s Android portfolio, the Cayenne seems to be an LG Viper with physical QWERTY keyboard. The Viper is also known as LS840, so we can safely assume that the Cayenne will be released as a sequel in the following months.
If the rest of Cayenne’s specs match those of Viper, we should expect the former to come with 1GB of RAM, around 4GB of ROM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
There is no information on LG LS860’s (Cayenne) availability or price tag, but we can safely assume this one will hit shelves sometime this summer.
