Sprint is investing in its infrastructure bringing 4G LTE coverage all over the US in the following months, as well as delivering LTE handsets for its customers, see recently released HTC Evo 4G LTE for example.
However a non 4G LTE device will join the Now network by the end of 2012 – the LG LS730 (see image above) a budget-friendly considered device that leaked a couple of days ago. Although there are no clear indications to link the handset to Sprint network, Brief Mobile’s source says otherwise and according to its anonymous tipster it will be marketed as LG Snapshot.
In terms of hardware specifications, LG Snapshot has a WVGA touch screen with 800 x 480 p resolution. The phone also has a 5MP camera on its back, it will be powered by Qualcomm’s MSM8655 Snapdragon single core CPU clocked at 1GHz, Adreno 205 GPU, 768MB of RAM (although the source mentions 6GB of DDR2), 4GB of ROM (built-in phone storage) and 1700 mAh battery. No word about 4G LTE capabilities on LG LS730 which is weird, considering Sprint is deploying right now its LTE Network across the US.
Some hardware specs listed by Brief Mobile could be wrong, we lean-to belive that this will be the Optimus L7 announced in the first quarter at MWC 2012 in Barcelona for the US market. What are your thoughts on this one?
