LG has not had the same presence in Android as the likes of Motorola, Samsung, and HTC, but the company might be looking to change that at the upcoming Mobile World Congress show. The details on LG’s new flagship device (currently called P880) have been leaked, and it’s looking like a real monster with a quad-core processor, and HD screen among other goodies.
The P880 will be one of the first smartphones to ship with the quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC. This part is already shipping in tablets, but it will be a big step for phones, and is producing some incredible benchmarks in the leaked screenshots. To keep that chip chugging along, the P880 will come with a 3000mAh battery. The screen will also eat up juice with its 1280x720 resolution.
The P880 will also be LG’s first Ice Cream Sandwich phone. The leaked screens show version 4.0.3 and the newest version of the Linux kernel for Tegra. LG doesn’t have the best reputation for software updates, but at least this one ill be running the latest and greatest when it comes out, unlike last year’s Optimus 2X.
