South Korean phone-maker, LG, is currently working on yet another Android smartphone. While there is scarcity of information available for now, GLBenchmark’s website suggests the new device will have a model number F240K, or whatever that means. Apparently, the device doesn’t have a name yet and LG hasn’t actually confirmed its existence. This report is based solely on GLBenchmark’s, one of the many mobile benchmark platforms, data having posted on its website.
There are only a few things revealed about LG F240K but they are helpful enough for us to speculate what this device is made and what it’s capable of.
OS. LG F240K will be showcasing Google’s latest version of Android, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This will put LG a step ahead of its competitors knowing majority of the manufacturers are going to release their devices with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Almost everyone knows that even if a manufacturer promises to roll out an update soon after the release, it would still take at least three months to complete. So, it would be better for them to release updated devices than make promises.
Resolution. LG’s new device comes packed with 1920 x 1080 resolution, which is too high for a smartphone. But taking GLBenchmark’s word for it, we have good reason to believe F240K will have at least, 5 inches display panel. We know that the company is a reliable source of good display panels–even Apple acknowledged its ingenuity–so, we can expect the device will sport better display technology. It is most likely that LG will use Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset in this device, the Adreno 320 (or even higher) graphics processor may also come packed with it.
Clockspeed. Lastly, LG F240K is said to have a minimum clockspeed of 384MHz and a maximum of 1.5GHz. We cannot really be sure about it but it could be a Snapdragon S4 processor from Qualcomm. Knowing LG’s good reputation in the United States, this device may also be designed to run under 4G LTE network for optimum performance.
Unless confirmed by the manufacturer, all things mentioned here are mere speculations. However, GLBenchmark has a good reputation of posting accurate information about mobile phones having benchmarked using its platform so, we are almost certain about it, although we just have to wait for the official announcement for us to know the full specs of LG F240K.
