Upcoming LG Fantasy smartphone pictures leaked

lg fantasy 1Leaked photos have been circulating of an upcoming Windows Phone smartphone from LG called the LG Fantasy. The phone may see a release sometime in Q1 of 2012.

A member of the XDA developers forum posted the photo originally, claiming to have bought the LG Fantasy from a tester in Romania; the user, untitledmangxg, seems to be from the same country. The untitledmangxg user came to the forums for help uninstalling several developer applications on the phone. The Romanian pointed out that the LG Fantasy “comes with WP 7.5 Mango installed, a very nice 4 inch display, IPS …awesome.”

As far as specs go, there doesn’t seem to be too much to go on, but according to a benchmark test, the phone scored a 85.7, beating out the HTC Radar’s score of 81.56. This led some of the forum members to believe that the Fantasy is a 2nd gen 1Ghz processor, comparing it to the HTC Radar’s 2nd gen 1Ghz Snapdragon. The phone’s 4-inch display is supposedly bright but responsive, and the phone itself is very light. It also has about 8GB of internal memory and a front facing camera at 1.3 MP; some members believe that the back camera looks as if it says 8-megapixels.

These new photos follow up on rumors of the LG Fantasy that emerged back in July. Pocket-Lint points out that the Fantasy was in the same leaked bundle of future LG phones as the LG Prada 3.0, which was launched in December. The LG Prada runs Gingerbread and packs a 1 Ghz dual-core processor with a 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. With the possible 2012 Q1 launch, we may get more LG Fantasy specs at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next month.
