LG has confirmed that it’s readying the launch of a new flagship Android smartphone. The company has launched a teaser webpage (in Korean) which reveals that the upcoming handset will feature LTE, and a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor – unlike the LG Optimus 4X HD, which relies on Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core CPU.
Other expected features: 4.7 inch IPS HD screen, 2GB of RAM, and a 13MP rear camera.
You can see an LG official talking about the new device in the video below (Korean):
According to previous rumors, the new LG handset should be called Optimus G. Sprint may launch it as the Optimus Eclipse 4G LTE in the US. There’s no word on when the smartphone will hit the market, but it could happen starting September. In any case, this looks t be LG’s (late) response to Samsung’s Galaxy S III.
