LG H740 shows up in benchmark result with Snapdragon 615, 2GB of RAM, 5.7-inch FHD display

LG H740 shows up in benchmark result with Snapdragon 615, 2GB of RAM, 5.7-inch FHD display
Although most LG fans are probably looking forward to the often-rumored LG G4 Pro, which may actually land as the LG V10, it looks like the company is also working on more affordable options as well. A currently unannounced smartphone codenamed LG H740 was recently spotted making the rounds in the GFX Bench database. The specs listed by the benchmark result indicate towards an upper mid-range phablet.

If the specs listed by the leaked benchmark result turn out to be accurate, the LG H740 will come with a 5.7-inch display running a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, and will draw its processing power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM. The Snapdragon 615 is Qualcomm's sub-premium chipset, and integrates a 1.5GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU alongside an Adreno 405 GPU.

Other specs listed by the benchmark result include a 12MP primary camera with LED flash, a 5MP secondary sensor, 8GB of internal storage (probably expandable via microSD), as well as the usual range of sensors and connectivity options. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is listed as the operating system version.

LG has a press event scheduled for October 1st in New York City, one where the leaked LG V10 phone is thought to be officially unveiled. We wouldn't be too surprised to see the LG H740 being officially introduced at the same event. 

What do you guys think of a semi-powerful Android phablet from LG? What would be a right price for this thing?

This one & HTC Hero are the biggest disappointment for today. Probably, LG Nexus and Huawei Nexus are the next one.

Snapdragon 615 has become a regular face of mid range phones that it has become difficult to differentiate the advatages between the models. Smartphone makers should either tweak the configuration to run 615 at higher speeds or use their own better chips with faster cores. Eg Samsung could use exynos 5433 instead of SD 615.

Yeah 8gb of internal memory....which rounds down to 4GB or less of actual useable memory. Forget about downloading games and apps.

This year, the mid range phones have become boring.

Lower mid-range at best.

Replacement for the G Stylo? Which is a really nice phone for the money. (Spare me the Alcatel/ZTE/OPO/Huawei speeches. No one buys those, and no carrier sells them)
