No Trick all Treat as LG Eclipse leak reveals possible October 31st launch for AT&T and Sprint
The LG Eclipse (LG LS970) is certainly no stranger to us. We have watched as the phone has grown from a mere speck of a rumor to a real legitimate upcoming handset with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU and an Adreno 320 GPU on board and featuring 2GB of RAM. The device recently showed up on a number of sites like the Bluetooth SIG, the AnTuTu Lab benchmark site, the Nenamark benchmark site and others that not only confirmed the lofty specs, but also revealed a possible launch date for the device.

The NenaMark Benchmark site for the AT&T variant of the LG Eclipse (LG-E970) shows a screen with a resolution of 768 x 1280, a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 CPU and an Adreno 320 GPU (the appearance of the latter is what confirms the former). Android 4.0.4 powers the unit. The AnTuTu Labs benchmark site shows information referencing the Sprint version of the device (LG LS970) and confirms the 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 processor and the 2GB of RAM. The site also reveals a 4.67 inch size of the display. The AT&T model's 768 x 1280 resolution points to a pixel density of 320ppi which is certainly in Retina display territory. Thanks to the AnTuTu Benchmark site, we know that the Sprint branded model has an ever so slightly lower resolution of 720 x 1280. And the Bluetooth SIG says that the device will be ready for the North American market around October 31st 2012. What a treat!

Whenever LG has tried to be the 1st into the market to bring the smartphones with latest processors, they have turned out to be more of disappointment with half baked software and under performing chipsets(due to lack of proper optimization by lg)
i still remember what a mess lg optimus 2X was...........
I hope LG mends it's ways and focuses more on optimization rather than just being 1st into the market to bring useless ****

Yea..I agree. They have some killer specs...but the delivery isnt alwyas there.

But....I wonder if other manufactures will be trying to follow them? I may just wait it out for a new phone til the end of the year.

Ppl will be drooling over Adreno 320 and 2GB ram tho... I try to stay away from chasing specs...and just get the best overall phone my my wants n needs.

I really hope that this is the start of the handsets with quad cores, Adreno 320 and 2Gb RAM specs along with retina screens in the 720x1280 territory. Winter, 2012 may be the time I get a new handset.

Whoa, this thing is a beast. Quad S4 with new GPU, 2GB of RAM, and an HD display? Lets hope LG gives it a build quality that's as good as the internals, and optimizes the software correctly.

Yeah, but they've come a long way with software as well. I've had the Viper for Sprint for a couple months and it's been awesome!
