To be honest we can’t say we’re completely surprised by this leak, but now that the HTC DROID DNA has been announced everyone appears to be “leaking” details about 1080p HD smartphones. Earlier today we heard reports that Samsung has their own in the works, and now a benchmark result has leaked showing an LG F240 device rocking a 1920 x 1080p full HD display.
LG’s just released LG Nexus 4 and Optimus G have been the talk of the town lately. Sporting an impressive 1280 x 768 resolution with some of the highest pixel-per-inch ratios on any smartphone. The same day however HTC shattered their dreams with their 5-inch 1080p HTC DROID DNA. Now just a few days later it appears that everyone has something else in the works, HTC just beat them to the game.
A mysterious device code-named the LG F240 has leaked in a GL Benchmark showing an unknown sized 1920 x 1080p HD display, probably 5-inches, running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and rocking the popular Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5 GHz quad-core processor. Benchmark results can always be faked, but this looks to be the real deal.
Reports of Samsung’s own 4.99-inch 1080p screen surfaced this morning, Sony stated they’ll be bringing something similar, and now LG. It looks like HTC’s DROID DNA will have some competition very soon — at least from LG. Most likely anything from Samsung won’t be until their Galaxy S4 which we’re expecting to see in Q2 next year after CES. It looks like quad-core processors, 1080p HD displays and more will be the norm coming up at CES 2013 in January. I’m still hoping Samsung rains on everyone’s party with a flexible AMOLED display. Who’s with me?
