LG and Qualcomm have unveiled that they’re going to host an event in New York on September 19 – and they will launch a new smartphone then.
From the invitation to the event, it’s clear that the mysterious smartphone is a Snapdragon-powered one. And maybe it’s not really that mysterious.
Engadget suggests that we’re going to see the US version of the LG Optimus G. Which certainly makes sense. After all, the Optimus G is LG’s latest flagship handset, and the company already said it would release it in lots of markets around the world.
The Optimus G is the world’s first LTE-capable device to come with a quad-core Snapdragon processor. It also features a 4.7 inch True IPS+ HD screen, Android 4.0 ICS, NFC, 13MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. I’m pretty sure that at least one major US carrier will want to have the handset. It remains to be seen which of them.
