Samsung SM-S780L is a new and mysterious 720p Android smartphone
Once flagships that made their manufacturers proud, 720p smartphones are now mid-end devices. But that’s not a bad thing, since they don’t cost too much, while still offering a nice user experience. That’s probably what Samsung has in mind for the new SM-S780L: to provide decent features at a decent price.

The S780L is an unannounced smartphone that’s all but confirmed, as its User Agent profile appeared over at Samsung’s website. The handset runs Android, and has a 720 x 1280 pixels display of unknown size. It received a Wi-Fi certification a couple of days ago, this allowing us to see that it features dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac.

Blog of Mobile reports that the SM-S780L could be released by LG U+ (South Korea’s third largest mobile carrier). Since LG U+ only offers CDMA and LTE services, and the SM-S780L also seems to have W-CDMA and GSM connectivity, the handset might reach international markets as well.

Samsung may announce the SM-S780L next month - at, or before MWC 2014, when the company could also introduce the new Galaxy S5 flagship. Another upcoming Samsung smartphone that should be announced soon is the Galaxy Note 3 Neo (SM-N750 / SM-N755). Maybe we’ll see all of them at the same time? We’ll let you know.
