LG B leaks with an impressive display and a crazy-thin body [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Now that the LG Star has been made official with the name LG Optimus 2X (although it's not planned for the U.S. just yet), we need a new unannounced LG-made Android phone to drool over, right? Leaking just in time to take the Star's place is the LG B, the device you see in the middle of the image up above. "B" is just a codename for the device, although after seeing just how bright its 4-inch screen is compared to the iPhone 4 and Samsung Galaxy S, you'd think that that's what the B stands for. After seeing the B's profile, though, you'll think that it should be called "T" for thin. As you can see in the photo below, the B looks like nothing compared to the svelte iPhone 4. You can check out a few possible specs for the B below, compared with what is likely the Samsung Galaxy S ("S") and the iPhone 4 ("R").
The iPhone 4 and Galaxy S have some of the best displays on the market, so the photo of the B outshining them both gets me really excited for the device. Plus, it's crazy thin, meaning that it could really appeal to those of us that are a little more fashion-conscious. It's important to note that the source of the images said that LG is still tweaking the final look of the B and working on making the screen even better and the overall package even more compact. There's no information on a potential launch date, or even a final name, but I'm sure we'll be learning more in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
UPDATE: Well, that's not something that happens every day. Shortly after the LG B leaked to the masses, LG went ahead and confirmed its existence to the world on Twitter. The tweet in question has since been deleted, but you can find the full text below:
