LG E940 leaks with 1920 by 1080 pixel display, Snapdragon S4 Pro, bound for AT&T

LG E940 leaks with 1920 by 1080 pixel display, Snapdragon S4 Pro, bound for AT&T
AT&T subscribers have a new phone to look forward to! The LG E940 Android smartphone was just spotted in the GLBenchmark database, and judging by its hardware specs, it is a high-end model for geeks to drool on. How do we know it is an AT&T model? Well, the OS' build fingerprint holds the clue – a little piece of code that says "geefhd_att_us" reveals what carrier the device is headed to. 

Want to know more about the LG E940 hardware specs? For starters, this yet-unannounced LG handset has an impressively high-res display – 1920 by 1080 pixels, to be more specific. That's exactly as many pixels the HTC Droid DNA monsterphone has to offer. The size of the screen is not being mentioned, but it won't be surprising if the display on the LG E940 measures about 5 inches in diagonal. 

Then comes the processor that the LG E940 is being powered by. The model of the SoC is not listed, but since an Adreno 320 GPU is on board, it is pretty safe to assume that a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip is in use. Android 4.1.2 runs on the unit that got tested, so our guess is that Jelly Bean will run on it upon launch. 

That is all we know about the mysterious LG E940 so far, but if the smartphone is really bound to see the light of day, more information about it will surely surface on the internet sooner or later.

Thanks for sending this in!

It would be running Android 4.2 if it was a Nexus 4 variant.

if it really would be a nexus, that would definitely be my new phone...NVM the 16GB max mem or the no sd card slot...as long as it supports USB OTG then i'm definitely sold....^^, but i doubt that it would be a nexus phone considering that the nexus 4 haven't even reach a lot of regions or countries....the e940 for nexus4 probably just the code of the phone as an LG branded device...

But if that's the case, why won't it run Android 4.2.1?

I hope LG will follow the design of N4 for this phone. It's much more ergonomic than Optimus G boxy design.

According to the reports of Techkiddy LG E940 is the US version of LG F240K which will be available for KT telecom in Korea and the korean version will be launched at the end of year. So we expect the US version will release in the first quarter of 2013

Verizon has like EVERYTHING else, it's a shame that we haven't gotten an Optimus G-esque LG phone yet but we really don't have a lot of room to complain.

20. alouden unregistered

I guess...I am just a little disappointed with the absence of the Optimus. That would have been the best option for me. And it's not as if the Note 2 is a bad phone... :-).

Man..I just got the LG Optimus G from AT&T, and now I read that this is coming out!

The between 1080P and 720 is slight at best. I have the Optimus G as well and after visiting a Verizon store to check out the DNA; I felt that the display on the OG was almost as nice.
