More news leaks about the LG Cayenne LS860

More news leaks about the LG Cayenne LS860
Last week, we told you some information about a side-sliding handset from LG called the LG Cayenne LS860. While Brief Mobile had a few leaked details about the phone, apparently they were able to obtain an entire list of specs and a new picture of the device which is expected to launch via Sprint next quarter. So far, no word on pricing for this  phone.

The LG Cayenne is expected to offer a 4 inch IPS display with WVGA resolution. Under the hood should be a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM on board. Not only does thhe LG Cayenne offer the side-sliding physical QWERTY and 4G connectivity, it also will have NFC support. And if you're not exactly enamored by the moniker, Cayenne sure sounds like a code name to us.

Not so long ago, those specs would have made the LG Cayenne a high-end monster. Now, it looks to be a very capable, mid-range handset for those who have the need to type on a QWERTY keyboard.

If LG releases this with 2.3 instead of ICS this phone will be a joke and remain on sprint shelves like the LG Viper IMO.

The Viper is selling like crazy in my market. It's the only Sprint LTE phone available since the Galaxy Nexus is on national backorder and the EVO LTE's are on perpetual pre-order.

I just hope that HTC realizes that there is still a market for physical keyboards and makes a successor to the Desire Z/G2/Evo Shift with specs similar to this LG device or the One Series and keeps a physical keyboard similar the the one on the Desire Z/G2/Evo Shift.

Motorola Droid 4 has those specs and a slider qwerty keyboard. Just doesn't have the S4 chip, but still a 1.2ghz dual core processor. Nothing really new here unless you prefer LG.

The droid 4 has a TI OMAP 4430 chip. The OMAP 4430 uses A-8 architecture, while the S4 chip uses A-9. There is a huge difference.

Qualcomm doesn't use a-9 it uses a-15 ish architecture, qualcomm doesn't folow ARM strucutes to the exact point so they can not be called a-9, a-15 or whatnot, but the fact is that s4 dual is the best on the market now, atleast until we see s4 quad and TI OPAM 5 a-15 SoC

Well, my point being is that this phone honestly isn't going to be a huge difference from the Droid 4 until we see more specs, such as storage, screen resolution, etc. Thumbs down me all you want, if you want a slider phone now, the Droid 4 will take care of your needs just fine unless you just have to have the S4 chip.

BIGGEST BULLs**t OF THE YEAR. TI OMAP 4430 USED CORTEX A9 CORES. Read this Do you even know what Snapdragon s4 is..? Qualcom makes its own cores, it does not uses the Cortex cores made by ARM like TI,Nvidia or Samsung, So S4 uses KRAIT cores, which are niether a9 nor a15, but have mugh higher performance than A9, and A15 is expected to have much more than it.

Qualcomm licenses from ARM just like everyone else and uses ARM instruction sets ARM does not manufacture cores/cpu etc. They sell their architecture and it's all up to the licensee to decide how they want to design and build it

Never seen a slider with such nice specs, nice to see someone taking a chance on the high end-ish QWERTY market again

Wow... like a dream phone to me... I've been waiting for a Sliding phone with similar specs for a long time!

It's already out and it's called the DROID 4. The DROID 4 is also a better phone because it has a higher resolution screen, is splash proof, has gorilla glass, a bigger battery, twice the built in memory and better cameras.
