Thinking about some of the devices that have just launched or are about too, all of the leaked specs are very possible. The Galaxy S III in the U.S. will have 2GB of RAM. The Xperia Ion is housing a 12MP camera. Both of those devices also have some pretty great HD screens in place too. Some new information has been dug out by Engadget that confirms some of these specs.
One of the first things that was pulled up and revealed came from a Bluetooth Certification. It lists the LG Eclipse as being released to North America on October 31st. One could pull all kinds of assumptions from the device name being Eclipse and October 31st being Halloween, but we won’t. That, and its only June. Speculating a device launch date that far out to be accurate is a bit far-fetched. It is still possible though.
Next we have a User Agent Profile. Listing the device as the LS970 running on Sprint. It also confirms a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 AT&T comes into play in the Benchmark tests (AnTuTu, Nenamark2, and GLBench) . Listing the device as the E970 and a resolution of 1280 x 720p. Of course both are coming up on Android 4.0.
If the October time frame is correct, which it is easily possible, there is still time for some more modifications and changes. There has been some talks of the device picking up a quad-core processor prior to launch that would actually run on LTE in the states. That could make for an interesting twist in the Android market for us.
LG might just have a winner on their hands finally. As much as we might like to knock their previous devices, one can do the same thing about nearly all manufacturers. Heck, Samsung started out in the gutter with the Behold, the Behold II and others, then made a stellar comeback with the first Galaxy S. LG was late to get into the Android game so they have some time to make up for past mistakes. Looking at the more recent line of LG devices and what is on its way, we’d say LG has a promising future. We do wonder if it will be too little too late to really gain a foothold in the Android market share though.
