Yesterday we reported that a leaked document hinted at 4 new Android devices heading to Verizon Wireless. That list, apparently, is only a fraction of a much longer one, which entertainment site IGN acquired from…
If true, a concept phone design sent to Concept Phones just might have you abandon your current fixation on whatever dual-core Android smartphone has been or is yet to be released. That is, and if ever, the LG Optimus Pro actually sees the light of day beyond LG’s labs and beyond concept designers’ imaginations.
According to specs revealed by Concept Phones, the LG Optimus Pro carries power so immense–with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor running at 1.5 GHz–in a comfortably sized form factor with its 4.3-inch touchscreen. The processor alone is more than enough to steal the limelight from superphones such as the rumored Google Nexus Prime from Samsung, the rumored Motorola DROID HD (a.k.a., Motorola Spyder, its rumored rebrand when it hits Verizon Wireless), the too-late-too-expensive Motorola DROID Bionic, the HTC Vigor and its 720p HD screen, the HTC Ruby (a.k.a., HTC Amaze 4G), and the Samsung Galaxy S II and its variants.
But, here’s more. It purportedly will sport a 1280×720 (HD) NOVA display, Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Bluetooth 3.0, 3D capability, and–dig this–a 12.1-megapixel primary camera, just a few pixels shy of the rumored Motorola Dinara’s 13.0-megapixel primary camera.
With Samsung being rumored to be the chosen manufacturer for production of the Google Nexus Prime reference phone for Ice Cream Sandwich, the LG Optimus Pro just might be a really strong contender if ever this concept design holds water. Heck, a phone this powerful would be a great one for the Google Nexus Prime, although current industry speculations say it’s unlikely for LG to be Google’s anointed one for the Nexus Prime.
Here are more photos of the concept design to give you an idea of how the LG Optimus Pro might look like:
Whether an LG Optimus Pro with such specs will actually take on flesh and bones remains to be seen. Makes you want to wish there’s truth to this rumor, no?
