Sprint has made a few revisions to its User Agent profile listing for the LG-LS990 (LG G3). Fortunately the QHD display remains, instead the alterations affect the device’s RAM and camera specifications.
The handset’s RAM has dropped back down to 2GB from 3GB, putting it back inline with the LG G2. On the plus side, the camera modules have received a bump in resolution. The profile now lists the device as having a 16 megapixel rear camera, and the front facing sensor has also received a slight boost to 2.4 megapixels. We’ll have to wait and see what other changes this brings compared with the G2’s camera.
Finally, the software number has changed to “LS990ZV1” but the profile still states that the device comes with Android 4.4.2, so the update is most likely making adjustments to LG’s specific features.
Back in mid-March a user agent profile from LG’s own website suggested that the upcoming LG G3 would come with a QHD (1440×2560) pixel resolution display. In fact, we’ve been hearing similar rumors since the beginning of the year. These details have been spotted once again, this time in a user agent profile from US carrier Sprint. As well as hinting yet again at a QHD display, the profile contains virtually an entire hardware spec sheet for LG’s next flagship smartphone.
The device in question is listed as the LG-LS990, which is expected to be the Sprint version of the LG G3, whilst the carrier-less version retains the D850 tag that we have seen before. If the QHD displays turns out to be correct, it’s likely that LG will be using the 5.5 inch QHD display that it already unveiled, which has a pixel density of 530ppi.
As well as display information, the UA suggests that the LG G3 will be sticking with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, like the one found in the G2, rather than the slightly updated Snapdragon 801 chip found in other new flagship handsets. Sadly then, this spec suggests that the G3 won’t be one of the first smartphones to feature the upcoming Snapdragon 805 SoC. LG also seems to have brought the RAM count up to 3GB this time around.
Here’s the full spec according to Sprint’s LS990 UA Profile:
- SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974
- CPU: Quad Core Krait 400 (probably clocked at the standard 2.3GHz)
- Display resolution: QHD (1440×2560)
- RAM: 3GB of RAM
- Internal storage: 32GB
- External storage: MicroSD cards up to 64GB
- Rear-facing camera: 13MP (image resolution: 4160×3120)
- Front-facing camera: 2.1M (video resolution: 1920×1080)
- Operating system: Android 4.4.2 KitKat
- Cellular connectivity: LTE / EVDO / IS2000
- Other connectivity: GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
Of course, this could always be a preliminary spec given to Sprint to help prepare its marketing material, LG may change one or two things before the official announcement. What do you make of the LG G3 based on these specs?
