Android Nougat-Powered LG-M320G Certified By The FCC

A smartphone manufactured by LG Electronics labeled with the model number LG-M320G was certified by the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) earlier this week, shortly after the existence of another variant of the same device that's possibly the upcoming LG X power2 was also publicized by the agency. The product documentation reveals that the handset supports 4G LTE and older network technologies, in addition to featuring a Bluetooth adapter, though the certificate makes no mention of NFC compatibility. Another detail revealed by the FCC is that LG's upcoming smartphone is running some variant of Android Nougat and the company's proprietary user interface, as evidenced by the screenshot below.

A different version of the same smartphone bearing the model number LG-M320 was uncovered on Geekbench several days ago, and its listing confirms that the device is running Android Nougat, i.e. the 7.0 version of Google's operating system. According to the same source, the smartphone is powered by the MediaTek MT6750 system-on-chip (SoC) and 2GB of RAM, though it's currently unclear how much storage space did the Seoul-based company opt to integrate into its upcoming handset and whether the phone will be equipped with a microSD card slot. Regardless, the official product documentation of the MT6750 indicates that the screen of the LG-M320 will support resolutions of up to 1280 by 720 pixels, while the device itself will feature LPDDR3 RAM. The 64-bit piece of silicon also boasts the ARM Mali-T860 MP2 graphics chip and eight ARM-A53 cores configured in two equally sized clusters - one high-performing one clocked at 1.5GHz, and another one with a maximum frequency of 1GHz designed for optimal battery life.

Overall, it seems that the South Korean consumer electronics manufacturer is preparing to release another device that will compete in the lower mid-range market segment, though it remains to be seen how LG decides to price the LG-M320 and whether this particular device truly is the LG X power2. Given the rising number of certificates that are being issued for the upcoming handset, the device may be released in the near future and will likely be launched in the United States, though it's currently unclear whether the Seoul-based phone maker also has plans to bring it to other markets.
