Thanks to a Bluetooth filing and a User Agent Profile on Sprint’s website,we now have information that points to the release of an LG device which could be an updated Optimus G Pro, or a new handset altogether coming to the network later this year. The leak shows a handset called the LS980, which runs on Android 4.2.2 and touts a 1080p screen. The model number is in line with AT&T’s Optimus G Pro model number of E980.
Since the filing refers to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor running the show on the device, it may well be a new LG device, as the LG Optimus Pro runs on a Snapdragon 600 processor. It’s hard to tell at this point if Sprint is updating the Optimus G Pro for Sprint or releasing a new device entirely. But one thing is for sure, LG’s new device will be gracing Sprint’s network in the near future. And we won’t say no to a device that ships with the Snapdragon 800 anytime soon.
