Right now, LG Rumor handsets, including the Rumor 2 and Rumor Touch, make up a family of CDMA feature phones. The way of the world is shifting towards smartphones, slowly but surely, and it’s looking like the Rumor series may be about to make the transition. We’ve heard that Boost Mobile may have plans to launch the Rumor 4, the first such Rumor model to run Android.
Supposedly, the LG Rumor 4 would be a Gingerbread device with a 4.3-inch display. It should have a five-megapixel main camera and include 3GB flash storage (though that may be just 1GB internal and a 2GB microSD card). We don’t know about processor choice just yet, but this is sounding like it’s going to be a low-to-mid-range device.
The specs we’ve seen don’t mention it, but so far Rumor devices have been QWERTY sliders, and that trend might continue with the Rumor 4.
Boost’s schedule could change in the intervening months, but from the looks of things, the carrier plans to launch the handset sometime in late March.
