A new LG smartphone quietly passed through the FCC last week, one model P936. Although the phone was identified as an Optimus LTE model, the FCC paperwork only revealed testing on standard AT&T 2G frequencies; clearly, this was not a phone intended for release in the US. Beyond that, though, the phone was largely a mystery. Today the dense fog surrounding news of the P936 starts to lift, and we get a look at a hands-on video with the phone, as well as some benchmark figures.
Sadly, despite having the chance to film the phone, the guys at GSM Dome haven’t yet reported with detailed information on the phone’s specifications. They promise more info in the future, but for now are able to tell us that the P936 runs a 1.5GHz processor (no mention of core count), has a 720p display, and features an eight-megapixel main camera. They mention that the phone has a pixel density of 320 ppi, which at 720p works out to a screen with a diagonal measurement of just about 4.6 inches.
As for the phone’s performance, it ranks up a Quadrant score of 2564. That’s not a super-impressive figure, which makes us think we’re comfortably in dual-core territory still. Hopefully we’ll get a close look at the phone’s capabilities, beyond just a base benchmark figure, in the coming weeks.
