LG D1L tipped to sport a 720p 4.7" screen like the Optimus 4X HD, but arrive with Snapdragon S4 and LTE

LG D1L tipped to sport a 720p 4.7
A new high-end phone codenamed D1L from LG appears to be in the plans for a May launch, and it seemingly packs the same 720p screen like the LG Optimus 4X HD, but will come with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 instead of Tegra 3, and the obligatory LTE connectivity.

The information comes courtesy of a leaked slide from an LG presentation detailing its LTE lineup plans, which you can see on the right. 

Rather than a totally new handset, this smells like simply a version of the flagship LG Optimus 4X HD, but with a Qualcomm chipset for the LTE purposes.

HTC already made the same move with its high-end One X, which will appear with S4 and LTE on AT&T, but with the quad-core Tegra 3 and HSPA+ connectivity only in its global version. If the LG D1L is scheduled for next month launch, it shouldn't be much a of wait before we know if our suspicions turn out correct.

I like everything about this phone, except the manufacturer. LG is gonna have to steal alot more than amoled technology to build a decent smartphone.

what makes you think that LG stole amoled tech? bcos of the article about Samsung's oled being told out? it says tht the employee MIGHT have gone to LG and it also says that Chinese companies make amoled that are actually good. dont make accuse a company based on what u read, especially when there is a word MIGHT

I don't know why you are ASSuming my comment was based on Something you read. But LG slways goes the cheap route & isn't big on r&d. Anyway they have been caught stealing tech before. Not to mention, lying about their products,price fixing ect. Btw I bet you can't name 1 smartphone made by LG that's worth buying.

Also, you might wanna learn to spell & read a little better. I have read several articles about LG stealing amoled tech. But the only 1 i read that mentioned the Chinese, was in reference to them (the Chinese) possibly being the beneficiaries of stolen amoled tech from Samsung.

What's the matter? can't understand sms language? too high class? people that resort to attacking the spelling/grammar/language someone is using during an argument, means tt they have no more constructive points to argue back with. and that is a proven fact. deal with it. Also, Samsung is no different than LG in terms of 'stolen tech, price fixing and product lying' in fact Samsung is more notorious for copying. every major companies have done it before, to improve their sales figures. so the jokes on you really. i can recommend LG phones for you, high end- Nitro HD/Spectrum Mid range- Lucid, Optimus Black(Marquee in the states) low end- Optimus Hub LG has excellent hardware, which is not always the product of 'tech stealing' it is their software that lets their hardware down. and btw (which means By The Way), it takes one to know one ;)

and FYI (which means For Your Information), Samsung and LG are known to help out each other. so maybe, LG getting AMOLED tech is from this helping out. you'd never know. but the FACT is LG and Samsung do help each other. if you refuse to believe it, nothing i can do
