LG is reportedly gearing up to launch its first smartphone under Android One programme. The company is reported to be working on a smartphone that could be a special Android One variant of the LG Q7.
According to a report by XDA Developers, the phone would be exclusively made available for T-Mobile. The information came out via some source code of some unreleased LG smartphone. The code reveals the code name ‘cv5a’ with carrier ‘tmo’, country code ‘us’ and suffix ‘sprout’. The carrier here means T-Mobiles, while the country means the United States and ‘sprout’ word is referred to Android One device.
The source code also reveals some key specs. To start with, the Android One smartphone will feature a5.5-inch Full HD+ display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. The report highlights that the device could feature 2GB or 3GB of RAM.
The smartphone will be backed by a 3,000mAh battery and it will also support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 for fast charging. The phone will run on Android 8.1 Oreo and it will fall under Android One programme, meaning that users will get timely updates as compared to other manufacturers. Further, the phone will feature some solid specs in terms of audio. There will be Hi-Fi ES9218P and DAC (similar to what we have seen in LG V30). On the connectivity front, there will be NFC, FM Radio, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and USB Type-C port.
