The ever-so reliable folks at @evleaks have managed to get their hands on a photo of a device dubbed the LG Optimus Regard. Based on the alleged specs, it seems that the Optimus Regard will be headed towards Cricket and will be the carrier’s first 4G LTE handset. No word on when it will be launched, but based on the image above it looks like it will most likely see a release before 2012 is out. So what sort of specs are we looking at here? Well for starters we can expect a 3.5” – 3.7” display with a resolution of 320×480. It will be powered by a dual-core ARMv7 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 710MB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera and will come with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich on board along with 4G LTE connectivity. Not the most powerful phone we know, but given its specs we expect that the LG Optimus Regard will be a low-cost solution for people who just want LTE speeds. Either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled, so check back with us later for more updates.
