Two unannounced LG Android smartphones have been found, which look to be bound for Sprint and MetroPCS sometime this year. The devices, the LG Cayenne and LG Motion 4G aren’t high-end devices but should be welcomed additions into the carrier’s mid-range portfolios.
While not pictured, one of the Cayenne’s biggest features is that it’s rocking a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. You thought those were dead, did you? Think again, as I know plenty of people who still prefer the tactile feel of a physical keyboard, and I for one would like to see more released by manufacturers.
The Cayenne is also said to have a 4 inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, five megapixel camera, and LTE support. The picture also shows what looks to a be a front-facing camera and a notification LED. That said, what looks to be the front-facing camera could end up being a proximity or ambient light sensor, and the possible LED notification light could just be some trickery of light.
The device is said to be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and while it may look like the device has software keys, we’re going to say that these are definitely capacitive buttons. It looks as it the display itself ends in the middle of the @evleaks watermark, and it would be too much unused space to say they are on-screen. Plus, we haven’t seen LG launch a device with on-screen buttons yet, so we have our doubts the company would switch it up for this handset. We supposed we’ll just have to wait and see until we get the Cayenne in our hands.
LG Motion 4G
The LG Motion 4G MS770 is lacking in even more details than the aforementioned Android device, but there are a few specs it’s said to have that we do know. One-upping the Cayenne, the Motion 4G will sport a qHD display of unknown size and a Qualcomm processor of an unknown clock speed. Other than that, you can expect the Motion 4G to have LTE support, 5 megapixel camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich when it arrives, which apparently isn’t a long time from now.
There’s also a possibility that AT&T will possibly pick this handset up, which could be dubbed the LG P870. Again, we’ll believe it when we see it.
No, neither of these handsets are going to rock your socks, but the LG Cayenne sounds like a solid mid-range handset and the Motion 4G certainly will find a nice amount of homes for MetroPCS customers.
