Don't stare directly at this picture of the LG Eclipse 4G LTE
BriefMobile on Thursday obtained a new picture of the back of the LG Eclipse 4G LTE. Last week, specs for the LG LS970  were revealed and to say that they were beastly would be a major understatement. The device is equipped with a 4.67 inch display with resolution of 768 x 1280, and a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 S4 processor is under the hood. The LG Eclipse 4G LTE has 2GB of RAM on board. On back is a 13MP camera with flash while the handset is blessed with 16GB of internal storage. Android 4.0 runs the show right out of the box and the phone uses virtual Android buttons. To run this requires a powerful battery and the 2,100mAh cell that comes with the device fits the bill.

Speaking of the battery, speculation is that it will be removable and that the phone will support Google Wallet which means it will be NFC enabled. Graphics will be the job of the Adreno 320 GPU. Other than the vague notion that it will launch in the second half of the year, we still do not have a more specific time period when to expect the LG Eclipse 4G, and how much it will cost. Heck, we still need the Korean based manufacturer to introduce it first. The LG Eclipse 4G LTE looks to be a stylish, thin model with a thickness of just 8.9mm. Any takers?

Get the Japanese GS3 if the 2GB RAM is what you're after.

and how you plan on doing that? notice the OTHER SPECS this phone has....13mp cam, galaxy only has 8mp....People need to stop fooling themselves just cause its dual core doesn't necessarily mean "less core" if the chip is right then you are A...O...K..... Qualcomm snapdragon s4 is a Great chip...

Errr. Didn't you read my comment? I said "... if the 2GB RAM is what you're after" GS3 japanese version has a supposed 2GB RAM. If he's after the 2GB RAM then he should consider the GS3. Did I say anything about the Camera? The chip? Why did you even bring it up?

because WHY would i consider the S3 for a 2gb of ram WHEN the LG has a 2gb of ram and many more pluses!! dude stop being a fan boy and once again i asked HOW are you going to get the JAPANESE version?

And you can get the Japanese version fairly easily. Off of like, Amazon, Ebay, etc. Though sometimes those aren't really reliable, it's still an option that's easy to accomplish

now this is true and yea thanks but a 13 mb cam and possibly a good lens as well.... with 2gb of ram and a really good snapdragon s4 chip... So why would i get the S3 again? simply because of an unecessary quad core?? I don't think so man, and the Lg might even be a little lighter on your pockets anyway... oo and did i mention there kinda going over board with the 4.8 inch screen size? NOT comfortable by any means

You contradicted yourself a bit here... You say the number of cores isn't everything, but you complained about the GS3 'only' having an 8 mp camera vs. this RUMORED 13 mp. Yes, the S4 is a great chip, and it has plenty of power to run the phone without any lag, but it's obvious the quad- Exynos has more power. Though that power isn't exactly necessary, it's still nice to have. Anyways, my point is, megapixels in a camera don't matter that much the same as cores don't matter that much. The camera software and hardware such as the lens do. The GS3 might have a 8 mp camera, but it's a really good 8mp camera, that could quite possibly take better pics than this 13mp.

Ok but WHAT IF the 13 mp cam has them BOTH?What if it not only has more mega pixels but a GOOD lens as well? Then what would you say?

68. Berzerk000

Then I would say "That's a good camera." My point is, just because it says 13 MP, doesn't mean it's better. Not only that, but I'm pretty sure this is a rumor. I could be wrong though

and no i didn't contradict myself, I threw the number of pixels out there because THEY LOVE TO throw out the number of cores out there, to try and gain an advantage, when just like you said the number of cores or pixels really dont matter!

75. Berzerk000

Posts: 4275; Member since: Jun 26, 2011

Yes, you did contradict yourself. You were going on about how the number of cores didn't matter, but you also went on to say that the number of MP did matter, which they don't. They threw out the number of cores to gain an advantage, and you found that to be wrong, but you threw out the number of MP to gain an advantage and you find that alright? Even though they both don't matter. I'm pretty sure that's an accurate example of being hypocritical.

Ok I'm back :) Let me just clear myself, I didn't say this LG Eclipse is crap, it's actually good. And I prefer Kraits over quads. And I also didn't consider the camera when I said to get the japanese GS3. I was just looking at the RAM. I said if the guy was after the 2GB RAM then get the Jap GS3. It's undeniable dude. As of the moment, the Galaxy S3 is the Android King. If I were to choose between GS3 and LG Eclipse I wouldn't even have second thoughts on choosing the GS3. I'm not a fanboy by the way, I have the Xperia S and I'm waiting for the Hayabusa because for me Sony cameraphones are the best in terms of imaging and imaging is one of my top considerations. But I will give it to the GS3, it's the overall best, ask the 9 million people who pre-ordered it. If people are gonna buy this LG Eclipse, it's most probably because of the camera and the 2GB RAM. But since I wasn't considering the camera, I suggested the GS3 with 2GB RAM. It's not about the cores, or whatever. I WAS JUST REFERRING TO THE RAM. And a GS3 with 2GB RAM is better than the LG Eclipse.

yea you would chose the "android King" because of that quad core it has....when the LG right here will probably be lighter on your pockets, have that nice S4 chip, a 13 mp camera and possibly a good lens too, as well as a 2gb of ram.... oo and you say ASK THE 9 million ppl that already ordered it??? I dont give a damn if 20 million ppl ordered it, if this phone is better ITS BETTER, dont get caught up in the media and Get with the crowd jus because "9 million ppl" bought the damn phone, when that many ppl are only buying the phone because its like the ONLY MAJOR FLAGSHIP out right now and people are really F*****G anxious, so anxious theyll prolly go in debt just to have A NEW piece of technology!! Knowing DAMN well they really dont need to upgrade from there S2.... But coming from the "MIGHTY S2" or so they say, this phone should have already had a 2gb of ram a 1.5 ghz processor, a full 2mp front facing cam... BOTH a 12mp camera and a Good lens... and maybe even 330 ppi instead of 306.. and im saying this cause the S2, IF, and only IF, You go by what ppl say, was Like A GOD phone lol

Ok now I see your point. But I don't like the GS3 simply because it has 4 cores, I like it because it is the overall best performer as of the moment. S4 chip is great and it beats the quad-exynos here and there but overall GS3 is still better. I'd say a battle between the two chips can go either way depending on the optimizations. Based on what you said you're considering the size, weight, and the cam. I guess between you and me, this boils down to preference. So we really can't decide on a winner if there is preference in the equation. Also, I was wrong referencing the 9million people who pre-ordered the phone, you're right, that kinda sounds ish33pish :p *But I'd still say Hayabusa will be better than this or the GS3.

the reason why i wrote it like that is because I believe i just came from a different article and people there where praising the quads over the duals... and when i seen this dude here like defending the the damn S3 just because some other dude was like ill get the LG over the S3 if it has a 2gb of ram, so thats when i said notice the other specs this phone has not jus a 2gb of ram and the part i continued about the cores was really for another post soo yea i can see how it looked like that but it wasnt ment for this my bad berzerk

I agree with you. They don't update their software often and they also refuse to go with the ICS favorites dock and do the old Samsung Touchwiz thing that has only three customizable and then an apps drawer. And they make it look fugly.
