LG Optimus G Sure Sounds A Lot Like The LS970 Eclipse


A few months back, we heard about a rumored superphone from LG, offering a quad-core processor, LTE support, and a beefy 2GB of RAM. Model LS970, we also knew it as the LG Eclipse, and some documents that surfaced in June suggested the phone would arrive in the US right around the end of October. Well, today there’s some talk about an LG Android called the Optimus G, but we’re wondering if this might not be the very same phone.

A good number of these Optimus G specs, as reported by Asia Today, match-up with what we’ve heard about the Eclipse. That includes the presence of a quad-core processor, those 2GB of RAM, and LTE connectivity.

This new report mentions a 4.7-inch screen for the Optimus G, which would seem appropriate for the 1280 x 768 display that we’re expecting for the Eclipse. The question is, even with all these similarities, could we still be talking about two different phones?

That’s made even more unclear by this recent talk of the LG Optimus Nexus. Might one of these models end up launching as the Nexus? Maybe all three are the same hardware. It might be too early for LG to reveal anything at the IFA, but we’d sure hope to get some kind of word over the next month or so.
