LG Connect 4G is revving to be an LTE Android powered smartphone for MetroPCS?

LG Connect 4G is revving to be an LTE Android powered smartphone for MetroPCS?
Considering that we’re merely a week away from CES, this entire week should prove to be a very enticing one as we inch ever closer to the big show. And along the way, we’ll continue to see and hear about some unannounced devices thanks to some leaks.

Interestingly enough, we’re getting a taste of that today as rendered shots of the LG Connect 4G MS840 for MetroPCS has leaked – indicating that it’s probably going to be a 4G LTE device for the carrier. Even though its design is hardly a standout in this day and age, its hardware specs are still a bit hazy. From the sound of it, the LG Connect 4G is going to feature a 4” WVGA NOVA display, dual-core processor, 5-megapixel camera in the rear, VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, microSD card slot, and 4GB of internal storage.

Of course, there are some who are going to salivate knowing it’s aiming to be an LTE device, but it’s rather surprising since its model number, MS840, is actually perceived to be lower-end when compared to MetroPCS’ version of the LG Optimus Black, the LG Esteem MS855. Going further, this handset is apparently going to hit Verizon as well, in the form of the VS840. And to round out things for the CDMA carriers, Sprint is allegedly going to make it one of its first LTE devices as well.

Obviously, it’s nice to see that this device is going to be making the rounds with some of the CDMA based carriers out there, but we’re in the dark in terms of release dates – though, we should hopefully be hearing something come CES next week.
