The word “Superphone” gets tossed around a lot these days whenever a company releases a flagship handset that they want to brand themselves off of. In this case, LG’s yet-to-be-announced phone certainly sounds power packed so far. Officially the name is LG LS970, but the site that found this beast is calling it the “Eclipse 4G LTE”, and notes that it’s headed for Sprint. Where it gets interesting is underneath the hood, the phone is said to be packing a Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz alongside an Adreno 320 GPU, and 2GB of RAM to top things off. You’re even looking at a 13MP camera on the back of the device as well. Woah.
Currently, all S4 processors are integrated with a radio but the set-up in the Eclipse is one that Qualcomm has only yet demoed in tablets. This setup is going to allow this phone VoLTE (voice-over-LTE) capabilities if or when it hits Sprint, meaning you can talk on the phone and surf the web at the same time. This seems to certainly be the powerhouse in the waiting, but it’s unlikely that we will see this anytime soon. Would this phone coming to Verizon change your opinion about LG?
