LG’s Mobile World Congress line-up could have been prematurely tipped, with two new smartphones, the “LG-P880“ and the “LG-P700“, cropping up ahead of the event later this month. Described by listings at the UPnP forum, as well as profiles on LG’s own site, the LG P880 has a 1280 x 720 display and is likely to be the LG X3 leaked earlier this year.
At the time, a quadcore processor was tipped for the X3/P880, specifically NVIDIA’s Tegra 3, with the display a 4.7-inch panel in a device under 9mm thick. OS is Ice Cream Sandwich, and there are the usual twin cameras - 1.3-megapixels up front and and 8-megapixels on the back – along with 16GB of storage. Up to 21Mbps HSPA+, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 round out the key leaked specs.
As for the LG P700, the UPnP listing confirms Ice Cream Sandwich, though the company’s own XML file suggests a mere 640 x 480 resolution display. That implies a mid-tier device, bringing Android 4.0 to lower price points, which Google needs if the OS is to begin ousting 2.x versions from the mainstream.
The expectation is that LG will be showing off these two new devices at MWC, and we’ll be there to bring back all the details.
