Like every other phone maker out there, LG is already working on its next batch of high-end smartphones. The LG F240 that caught our eye last month is certainly one of those. But it may not be the only one.
Today, and once again via a benchmark, the LG E940 leaked. Model number-wise, this is situated in between the LG Nexus 4 (E930) and the LG Optimus G that it’s based on (E970). That of course may not mean much, so let’s not trumpet that we have the next Nexus in the works just yet.
What’s clear is that this won’t be just a midrange offering. That’s because it will come with a 1920×1080 Full HD touchscreen, a la the HTC Droid DNA. The Full HD display is quickly becoming a must have in the Android smartphone space. Until now, we haven’t heard about any such screens coming under 5 inches in size, so it’s safe to assume that LG’s E940 will be a five-incher too, joining an increasingly crowded club.
As for the processor, it will be made by Qualcomm and will come with Adreno 320 graphics. That means either a Snadpragon S4 Pro chip, or a Snapdragon S4 Prime. But probably the former. It’s impossible to tell whether it will be dual-core or quad-core, since the benchmark only mentions the GPU, and the same one is being offered on both dual-core and quad-core CPUs.
The LG E940 currently runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, so it will launch with at least that version preinstalled. It’s headed to AT&T, possibly serving as that carrier’s response to Verizon’s 5-inch Droid DNA.
That’s all the info we have for now, but stay tuned and we’ll bring you more as it becomes available.
