LG LS860 Cayenne Leaked In Wild Photo
LG’s portfolio for 2012 is expanding. Though the company has already unveiled many smartphones designed for different niches of the market, one left ignored. I am talking about the smartphones with sliding keyboards, which are mainly made by Motorola. But Motorola belongs to Google from now on, and LG can use this situation to push forward its own handset. And I guess they will, since a new LG smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard has been leaked.
The mysterious smartphone was spotted in a blurry picture, so we can’t say much about its design and some details. But there is a short specs list uncovering some of the features. Firstly, this device is called the LG LS860 Cayenne, and though we understand this is just a codename, we’ll continue to call it this way. So the LG Cayenne is packed with a sliding 5-row QWERTY keyboard, a 4-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 480×800 pixels and a Qualcomm S3 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. It also supports the 3G LTE network meaning the phone is designed for the American or Australian markets. However, it can be renamed for the European launch, if it ever happens.
All in all, the LG Cayenne is similar to the LG Viper 4G LTE announced for the US via Sprint. The only difference is the presence of a QWERTY keyboard. Thus we can easily assume the Cayenne will sport a 5MP camera on the back. As for software, it will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is its main selling point.
Well, nothing is for certain yet, so we’ll throw this info into the category of rumors till LG or anyone else comes with an official statement.
