Confirmed: quad-core Krait-equipped LG LS970 comes with removable battery and NFC
We’re still out of breath from marveling at the awesomeness that is LG LS970 — aka the Eclipse — and its mind-blowing specs. It looks like the excitement won’t end there. Brief Mobile has received yet more details of the phone that’s enough to seal its place in our heart as “the next phone to be fawned over for the next couple of months” – now that both Samsung and HTC have released their flagship offerings.
While earlier pictures showed the back of the LG LS970 and had folks making assumptions that it’d come with an embedded battery, a new image reveals that it might not be the case after all. The image, as you can see below, confirms that the Eclipse’s 2,100mAh battery will be a user removable one. Aside from that, it appears NFC will also be present in the phone.
We can argue about the importance of NFC and whether it’s something that people would use in common phone actions, but if you look past the “tap to pay” function, it can be quite a neat way to beam data or exchange files to and from your phone. As for the battery, there’s no denying that shipping the LG LS970 with a removable battery does make the phone that much more attractive in our eyes.
Want to know why LG has suddenly moved up a notch or two in our list? Here’s why. The LG LS970 is set to come with a 4.67-inch WXGA display with 1280 x 768 resolution, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM (!), 13MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera and the aforementioned 2,100mAh battery. Oh, and it’ll come with a quad-core 1.5GHz Krait S4 processor. We rest our case.
It looks like the LG LS970 is heading towards Sprint’s direction in the US, but it’s the “when” part that we still don’t have enough information on. Stay tuned, folks!
