LG E970 leak indicates an AT&T Eclipse 4G LTE

LG's American flagships for the latter half of 2012 are starting to take shape. We've already seen the LS970 "Eclipse" 4G LTE, ostensibly a CDMA version of the Optimus LTE2 (below) and headed for American shores late this year. Now UnwiredView has spotted what appears to be the same phone, headed for AT&T at an unknown date. The E970 (final name unknown) showed up in a recent benchmark with some specs along for the ride.
