We've already heard so much about the LG LS860 aka the LG Cayenne
, but the device still had to get the physical from the FCC to keep marching toward a launch on Sprint. Said to be a side-sliding QWERTY packing version of the LG Viper 4G LTE
, the connectivity on the unit (CDMA 850 / 1900; LTE Band 25) confirms its destination as the nation's third largest carrier. And while Sprint's LTE coverage at the moment is as spotty as a fireman's trusty canine, the mobile operator did just add to the original 15 markets it covered with its LTE signal
. The carrier hopes to finish its LTE build out by the end of 2013.
What we don't know yet is a launch date for the LG Cayenne or a price. We see this tagged as a mid-range model
, befitting a phone with a 4 inch WVGA screen, powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, offering NFC support and running Android 4.0. Not that an FCC visit means a launch is imminent, but it is one less thing to do before the phone is released, and as such, it takes us one step closer to seeing official pictures of the LG Cayenne with pricing information and a launch date.
