LG Teases Upcoming Quad-Core S4 Pro Smartphone

Earlier this week, we heard that LG might be using a quad-core Snapdragon in one of its upcoming smartphones, presumably the rumored Optimus G. Now LG is making things official, though it’s still withholding quite a bit of info on the new device.

LG has a teaser page up for the forthcoming smartphone, where it goes into a little detail about the processor we’ll find on-board. Sure enough, we’re looking at a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro with the upgraded Adreno 320 GPU. That means this is almost certainly Qualcomm’s APQ8064 chip, the same one at the heart of Qualcomm’s MDP tablet for developers. Qualcomm previously confirmed that this LG model will support LTE connectivity.

The phone’s name is still being kept under wraps by LG, and it’s not yet sharing many of the specs outside the SoC, but from the looks of things it has several more videos to add to this teaser site in the future, which will hopefully expand upon things. So far, we’ve heard rumors like a 4.7-inch 720p display and 2GB of RAM.
