Is this a Sprint Windows Phone 7 handset from LG or a piece of polished granite?

We have seen blurry spy photos but this latest one to make the rounds is beyond blurry and crosses into the indistinguishable category. According to the source, what you are looking at above is one of the first Windows Phone 7 handsets for Sprint. This 4G handset is reportedly made by LG and could be an updated version of the LG Apollo (?).

The LG Apollo first appeared in January when Windows Phone 7 was still called Windows Mobile 7. Slated for Sprint or Verizon, it featured a set of specs that are a bit on the unbelievable side, at least for back then:

  • CPU: Qualcomm QSD8650; 1.3GHz
  • CDMA + GSM (aka a World Phone)
  • EvDO + HSDPA
  • Device Size: 115 x 57.5 x 11.2 mm
  • Memory (RAM/ROM): 1GB/1GB
  • External Storage: MicroSD (up to 32GB)
  • Screen Size/Type: 3.8-inch capacitive AMOLED “Multitouch Supported”
  • Screen Resolution: WXGA 1280 x 720 px
  • Camera: 10-megapixel with flash and autofocus; HD 720p video@ 30fps
  • Video Support: Windows Media Video (WMV), MPEG-4 (MP4/M4V) H.264, DVR-MS4
  • Audio Support: Windows Media Audio (WMA), Advanced Audio Coding (AAC-LC), FairPlay DRM, MP3
  • Battery: Removable 1400 mAh
  • Talk Time: Up to 7.5 hours
  • Standby Time: 288 hours
  • Internet Use: 4.5 hours (3G), 6.5 hours (WiFi)
  • Video Playback: 10 hours
  • Audio Playback: 30 hours

While the size of the blurry handset fits in with the current crop of leaked Windows Phone 7 handsets, I can’t say with any certainty that this the LG Apollo or even a Windows Phone 7 handset for Sprint. If you love to analyze blurry photos and care to speculate on the identity of this handset, please do so in the comments.
