LG Eclipse 4G LTE blocks out the sun at the FCC before moving on to Sprint
We first became aware of the LG LS970 in May when this beast, named the LG Eclipse 4G LTE, started its rise from rumor to reality. By June, speculation called for the unit to be launched this October for Sprint and AT&T. Now, the LG Eclipse 4G LTE has taken its required jaunt to the FCC which traditionally has indicated that the model's pre-launch check list is nearly all completed. While the LG LS970 is the model intended for Sprint, benchmark tests done on the phone indicate that the LG-E970 is the version for AT&T.

The LG Eclipse 4G LTE is definitely not your father's LG handset. This is a highly spec'd model designed to compete with the other flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S III, the HTC One X and the next iteration of the Apple iPhone. The unit has a 4.67 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280 and a pixel density of 314ppi. Under the hood you will find the APQ8064 which is a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor while the Adreno 320 handles all things graphic. 2GB of RAM is expected to be on board along with 16GB of native storage, and a 13MP shooter is out back capturing video in 1080p. There is a front-facing camera which will allow you to take self-portraits and supports video chat. A 2100mAh battery keeps the power on while Android 4.0 comes installed right out of the box. The FCC visit revealed support for CDMA 820 / 850 / 1900 and LTE band 25. All this in a byte sized (sorry, couldn't resist) package measuring 8.9mm thin and measuring 5.2 inches x 2.8 inches.

This is obviously going to be LG's answer to the other big guns. The problem is that the Korean based company is facing a moving target. By the time the LG Eclipse 4G LTE is launched, we could see the rumored HTC One+ released with a quad-core 1.7GHz processor.
