When you think LG, you don’t think high-end devices right? Well it appears that the Korean manufacturer is trying to change that. Starting with the Optimus G and the Nexus 4, which are basically the same device. Except one is a Nexus and the other has LTE connectivity. However, a new LG device has popped up over at GL Benchmark with the code name LG F240K. It appears to have a 1080p display along with a quad-core processor. Now that’s looking like a high-end device right?
It appears that the LG F240K is running Android 4.1.2, which is kind of a bummer since LG has the Nexus 4 out and it’s running Android 4.2. And since it’s 1080p it does have a resolution of 1920×1080, but we have no idea what the screen size is. Probably something between 4.7″ and 5″ would be my guess. Which would put the device in the competition with the newly announced HTC Droid DNA and a few other phones we’ve heard of lately to come with a 1080p display.
We can also see from the image above that it’s running an Adreno 320 GPU, which is pretty good confirmation that it’ll be powered by the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor in the Nexus 4, and the HTC Droid DNA. Which means it’s going to be one powerful beast. But it looks like that’s all we can tell from the image above at this time. Hopefully more details will leak in the next few weeks.
Just last night we heard from Sony and that they are planning to make a few high-end devices, including a 5-inch device that should make it’s debut at CES in January. We should be seeing plenty more leaks like this coming pretty soon from many manufacturers as we are getting close to another busy time in the Android world. CES is in January and Mobile World Congress is in February, with plenty of new phones and tablets being announced at both events.
Who would purchase a high-end LG device with a quad-core processor and a 1080p display? Let us know in the comments.
