A third edition of the LG Optimus series named 'LG F260S', or 'LG Optimus LTE III' has been spotted in Korea. The device apparently passed the national propagation authentication at the Korea Communication Commission's National Radio Research Agency. The below is the leaked photo.
The Optimus LTE III differs from the Optimus LTE II as it made significant improvements from the battery of Optimus LTE II (2,150 mAh) to 2,420 mAh battery. As seen in the picture, it will have flip covers like Galaxy Note series. Also, not only you will be able to expect 4G speeds and it will also be an economically competitive option for people who need a 4G smartphone at inexpensive costs.
The new Optimus LTE III will be the first in the series to run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. The device resembles Optimus F7 in terms of design, which also has LTE connectivity and HD screen. The LTE3 will also have a 1280 x 720 HD display, and a dual-core Qualcomm MSM 8960 Snapdragon S4 processor.
The Optimus LTE 3 is said to be headed to store shelves later in 2013, and will be launched exclusively via SK Telecom.
