At a time when rumors about Google’s LG-built Nexus 2015 are making the rounds, a new smartphone tied to the code name “LG H740” has silently visited the GFXBench benchmark testing site, revealing key configuration details. As it turns out, the upcoming device will be a mid-ranger.
According to GFXBench, the budget-friendly LG H740 specifications include a 5.7-inch display, bundled with 1080p screen resolution. Under the hood, the handset will reportedly come powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset, in combination with an octa-core Cortex-A53 processor, clocked at 1.5 GHz.
This device will be backed by 2 GB of RAM and the graphics side of things will apparently be taken care by Adreno 405 GPU. On the software end, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop will run the show, straight out of the box.
When it comes to camera configuration, the LG H740 will reportedly sport a 12-megapixel rear-facing sensor, along with an LED flash and support for 1080p video capture. In addition, there will also be a generous 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats. Notably, this selfie snapper will be capable of recording 1080p videos, according to GSM Arena.
Apart from the standard connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS, the LG H740 will also support NFC, but not LTE. Furthermore, the device will come equipped with 8 GB of built-in storage space. However, there is no information available on the expandable storage part.
LG has apparently scheduled a special event targeting Oct. 1 in New York City. This is where the LG H740 is expected to be unveiled, alongside the next iteration of flagship.
