The LG device rumoured to be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor (APQ8064) has reportedly got leaked screenshots doing the rounds of the internet, and has acquired a rumoured name as well – the LG Optimus E973 G.

The LG Optimus G is expected to be showcased at the upcoming IFA event in Berlin, which begins on August 31. Apart from leaked images, some expected specifications have also been filled in – the Optimus G should come with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Adreno 320 GPU (as expected), 2GB of RAM, and a 13MP camera. The device seems to be running Android 4.0.4 ICS.

LG has partially acknowledged the truth behind the rumours, saying the an Optimus device codenamed ‘G’ does exist. The Korean giant also detailed the massive 4.7-inch True HD IPS 1,280x768 pixel display, saying it delivers 470 nits of brightness, avoids screen burn-in, and uses 70% less power than a regular LCD when displaying all-white. LG has also improved touch-sensitivity, giving the Optimus G a  30% thinner gapless panel, using G2 Touch Hybrid technology. LG’s also said the Optimus G will feature a battery that’s rated to go through 800 full recharge cycles.

So far, the leaked device is assumed to be a pre-production unit of the LG Optimus G, and so hardware and software specifications may very well change come launch date. Stay tuned for more details, and IFA coverage.
