LG E970 appears in benchmark results boasting 1280x768 display, Android 4.0Alex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Time to add another handset to the unannounced devices list. A page of GLBenchmark test results has tipped the existence of the LG E970, a mysterious Android handset running version 4.0.4 of Google's mobile operating system. There's not much revealed about the E970 in the listing, but the results do mention that it's packing a display with a resolution of 1280x768, a 1.5GHz processor and Adreno 320 graphics. That GPU is present in Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 chipsets, specifically the MSM8960 Pro and APQ8064. There are also mentions of "ATT" in the E970's results, suggesting that the device could be AT&T-bound.
If those specs sound familiar to some of you, that's because they're similar to the features found in the rumored LG LS970 Eclipse for Sprint that we learned about earlier this month. Like the LG E970, the LS970 Eclipse is said to include a 1280x768 display (measuring 4.67 inches), 1.5GHz processor, and Adreno 320 GPU, as well as a 13-megapixel camera and 2GB of RAM. Unfortunately for AT&T folk, there's no mention in the E970's test results concerning its release date. Considering that the LS970 isn't expected to hit Sprint until the fourth quarter of this year, though, we may be in for a bit of a wait for the E970.
