We were starting to think that the LG LS970/E970 (aka the Eclipse) might be just a myth. Over the past couple of months we have seen numerous rumors surrounding the device, but now we have a Bluetooth SIG confirming its existence. The E970 seems likely headed for AT&T as it has AT&T GSM and LTE bands, and the LS model is likely headed to Sprint (CDMA/LTE). This looks like one of the most robust devices we have ever seen. The specs are simply off the charts:
  • Quad-core Qualcomm S4 Krait chip
  • The latest Adreno 320 GPU
  • 1280x768
  • 13MP rear camera
  • 2GB of RAM

According to the SIG listing these devices are scheduled for release in North America "around 10/31/2012." It seems like LG is getting serious about trying to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC One X. Share your thoughts.
