LG LS970 could be a quad-core LTE beast of a smartphone, bound for Sprint

Rumor has it that there is a pretty snappy LG smartphone in the works, and Sprint is the carrier it is to land on. Known as the LG LS970 or by the LG "G" internal codename, its features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor of an unspecified make, 4.7-inch HD display and LTE connectivity...

i'm intrigued. this will cause a shake up. what mystery quad-core SoC with LTE support could they mean? could this be the first device with an OMAP5? also being that the possibilty of this being powered by an OMAP5 exsists might that mean that Moto's Atrix 3, Droid Razr MAXX HD & Photon Q 4G LTE will be OMAP5 powered? if so then Sprint is about to have a very respectable line-up with not one but TWO OMAP5 powered devices. good for them.

It works on Tegra 3, no on OMAP 5.

Sorry. LTE version works on TI OMAP 5.

yeah, LTE has always worked on OMAP SoCs. xD

LTE does NOT work on the Tegra III and i don't what you mean by "no on OMAP".

Why a flagship quad-core LTE smartphone for a non-LTE carrier?

4q means sprint will be an LTE carrier by then.

The TI OMAP5 is still dual-core with a performance comparable to quad-core.
In a video released prior to the opening of the Mobile World Congress, TI compares its OMAP5 chip to a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 and shows that two cores can outrun four cores, at least in loading web pages.

Would be interesting to see this phone coming to Sprint. I'll look forward to it.

they did say the pic could be a place holder

if it is coming out Q4 like the pic says can it be the first tegra 4 phone?

No. It works on Tegra 3 and it is coming on sumer. His successor will probably be named Optimus 8X HD or Optimus 8X will have a Tegra 4 in it.

Sorry. It is coming on autumn/winter.
