Samsung remains tightlipped about its upcoming flagship, the Galaxy SIII. Tech observers expect the phone to include striking features such as quad-core Exynos processor, 4.8” Super-AMOLED display and 12Mp rear facing camera.
According to reports, LG might be prepping to match Samsung’s offering with its upcoming flagship, the LG D1L, which will flaunt slightly smaller 4.7” HD LCD display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. The handset will run Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), which will be LG’s first phone with the operating system. The smartphone will also offer LTE (4G) and powered by Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset.
An LG official confirmed that his company is developing D1L, but he couldn’t provide more information. If features of both smartphones turn out to be real, we can expect a lively competition between them. LG hasn’t made an official announcement about the product name, but it tells us that LG finally has taken the plunge by attempting to match what could be the next best smartphone in the Android world.
As always, it could be very difficult for LG to match Samsung’s offering in the market. At least, LG needs to match Samsung’s move in every corner. For example, LG should work with many different carriers in various countries. A benchmark result of a device called D1LV have been published recently and it refers to LG D1L which will join Verizon’s network in near future. If LG had done the same thing with the original Galaxy S and Galaxy SII, the Android community today could be a much more interesting place.
