New LG P930 device hinted in an XML file could be a smartphone

LG has been pretty big on Android recently, releasing quite a number of high-end devices running the operating system. And now it looks like they’ve got one more to add to the equation. This time it’s an Android device that bears the model number LG P930, sports a 1280 x 720 display, and has GPRS/EDGE and HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity.

Now judging by first glance you would think that an Android device with a resolution that large should be some sort of tablet and not a phone. But upon closer inspection – you can see stated in the tile that the “NumberOfSoftKeys” is 3. Since Honeycomb tablets won’t have anymore softkeys and will be using onscreen keys to navigate instead, this clue certainly points towards the LG P930 being a phone.

Unless of course, this isn’t a Honeycomb tablet, so it would be allowed to have buttons again. The model name of the device also gives it away – LG has been using the P prefix for smartphones – Optimus 2X: P990, Optimus Black: P970, and so on. As for their tablet, they’ve been using the V prefix – Optimus Pad: V900.

Well, until LG comes forward with an official announcement, we won’t know for sure, but keep your eyes and ears peeled for news about this device.
