Flagship spec'd LG phone appears on Geekbench, heading to U.S. Cellular

Flagship spec'd LG phone appears on Geekbench, heading to U.S. Cellular
A new flagship LG handset was discovered on Geekbench this morning. Based on the model number (LGE LGUS997), this is a device that is headed to the 5th largest carrier in the states, U.S. Cellular. The Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood. U.S. Cellular does offer two different handsets made by LG that feature the Snapdragon 820 SoC. One is the LG V20 and the other is the LG G5. So the question is whether we are looking at one of those two models, or a new handset altogether.

The device that was tested features Android 7.0 and is powered by a quad-core CPU clocked at 2.19GHz. 4GB of RAM is inside. In case you are keeping score, the single-core tally was 1639, while the multi-core figure rang up as 3504.

We can eliminate the LG G6 as a possibility since LG is expected to include 6GB of RAM with its new flagship and the Geekbench test reveals that 4GB of RAM is included with this handset.
