Not to be outdone by its Korean rival, LG’s reportedly preparing a potent new phone with some of Qualcomm’s latest SoC hardware. According to BriefMobile‘s leak, it’ll pack an LTE-friendly MDM9615 alongside the Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM — something LG has already announced for its Optimus LTE2. A 2,1000 mAh battery will apparently power the 4.67-inch 1280 x 768 LCD display, while a Sony-matching 13-megapixel camera will face out the back. The leak — which includes the decidedly abstract photo above — reckons the LTE slab will arrive on Sprint, which tallies with the LS970 model number. We’re cautiously holding out for something more official soon — perhaps once the Now Network’s flipped that 4G switch.
