The LG G3 is by far one of the hottest smartphones available right now, but with the mobile market moving forward like there’s no tomorrow, you can be certain that the hype behind G3 will dial down, with a brand new device taking G3’s place sooner rather than later.
As a matter of fact, LG itself seems to be working on a new flagship device, despite the fact that the LG G3 has not been released worldwide just yet. Some of you may be able to recall this, but not too long ago word on the street was that LG might be working on a so-called “LG G3 Prime”, and now it seems that this mysterious device has just been certified by Bluetooth.
LG G3 Prime Gets Certified By Bluetooth?
Bluetooth SIG’s database has been recently enriched by a new LG smartphone featuring the model number “LG-F460S“. At this point you may be wondering why we are linking this model number to the so-called “LG G3 Prime“, and the answer is simply because this isn’t the first time we’ve stumbled across this particular device.
About a couple of weeks ago, an “LG-F460L” has been spotted in an Android OS .prop file, bearing the codename “Tiger”. The handset in question seemed to pack a Snapdragon 805 CPU, an Adreno 420 graphics chip and a Qualcomm MDM9635 modem that would allow for download speeds of 225 Mbps.
Now the same device bearing a similar model number “LG-F460S” has been spotted on Bluetooth’s website, hinting that the LG G3 “Prime’s” release date is closing in fast. You should also note that the model numbers are not identical, as the “L” and “S” hint at different carriers. The “L” is supposed to be released by South Korea’s LG U+ carrier, while the “LG-F460S” is destined for SK Telecom.
We’ll keep you up to speed as soon as we find out more so stay tuned and let us know if you’d be interested in buying a more powerful LG G3 spin-off.
