The LG Optimus G with model number E970 and its Nexus variant, the E930/E960 Mako, represent the company’s comeback, or at least an attempt. Not long after both devices settled in nicely we’ve heard rumors of a possible follow-up to the Optimus G, a phone which would pack a 1080p display á la Droid DNA, to arrive sometime in spring.
According to information buried deep inside benchmark results, there’s an LG phone with model number E940 which looks to be an interesting one. It packs a 1080p display and is headed to AT&T, according to several strings within the results. Also, the processor seems to be a Snapdragon S4 Pro, or a variant, judging by the “Qualcomm” string and Adreno 320 GPU. So far these line-up nicely with everything we’ve heard about the Optimus G’s follow-up, even though that model was identified as the F240 (which could very well be a local market version).
Just for the sake of speculation, if this will be the US (AT&T) version of the F240 destined for South Korea then we can definitely expect to see this phone next month at CES. Also, it would mean that among the big players, only Samsung is left out of the 1080p game.
