A new LG smartphone, labeled as the “LG-D725”, has been spotted in FCC’s database, suggesting that the LG G3 Beat is heading for AT&T’s LTE network.

The LG G3 Beat was official announced for release in China and other Asian markets last week, and was packing some rather impressive specs into a slightly smaller 5 inch form factor than the LG G3. Earlier, the same sized LG handset was spotted passing through the FFC, compete with support for AT&T’s LTE bands, 2, 4, 5 and 17.

The previously announced 5 inch LG G3 Beat carries the model number “LG-D729″, whilst this new handset carries the model number “LG-D725”, although it is common for model numbers to change when network hardware changes. According to the FCC file, the LG-D725 features a 127.0 mm display, which works out at exactly 5 inches, the same size at the LG G3 Beat. So it is very likely that these are in fact the same handset.

There have also been rumors going around that a 4.5 inch LG G3 Mini handset is in the works (model number LG-D724), which has also been rumored to arrive through AT&T, but so far such a device has only briefly been mentioned in the form of a demo handset on an Indian import/export website. Perhaps it has been replaced by this 5 inch model?

Although there has been no official word from LG or AT&T regarding the launch of such an LG handset, FFC certification suggests that an announcement should be upon us soon. Are you interested in a slightly smaller 5 inch LG G3, or would you rather see a more miniaturized flagship smartphone from LG?
