LG could gearing up to release a new “superphone” that will do battle with the latest Android-powered handsets from Samsung and HTC. The device is called the LG Eclipse, and it was first revealed earlier this month with a leaked image of its rear casing.
Today the device has popped up again, this time with images of its internals that reveal its removable battery and NFC connectivity.
It’s not much, but if the specifications in last week’s report are anything to go by, this handset has all the ingredients to be a terrific smartphone. It is expected to feature a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable via microSD), and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. It’s also expected to feature LTE connectivity in the U.S.
All of those components will be packing into a tiny, 8.6mm-thick shell. Unfortunately, despite two shots of its rear end, we’re still yet to see what the front of the Eclipse will look like.
But of course, until LG confirms those specifications and makes the Eclipse official, this is all just speculation. According to BriefMobile, we’ll find out more about the device during the fourth quarter of this year when the handset gets its debut.
Are you looking forward to the Eclipse?
