LG prepping D1L, 4.7in Galaxy S III puncher

LG prepping D1L, 4.7in Galaxy S III puncherWe reckon Samsung’s rivals must be pooing their pants just a little at the prospect of the quad-core Galaxy S III. Chances are it’ll be one of the phones of the year.

LG, for one, is said to be fortifying its defenses, with a spanking new flagship codenamed the D1L.

At Mobile World Congress in February, LG revealed the Optimus 3D Max (meh), Optimus Vu (meh), and the quad-core Optimus 4X (hmm). Oh, and those three L-Style thingies.

The South Korean manufacturer is said to be unhappy with its current flagship effort, and hopes to give the Samsung Galaxy S III a run for its money with this LG D1L.

Rumoured LG D1L specs at the moment include a 4.7in display (1280 x 720), 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).

According to DDaily’s sources, the D1L (which will presumably be called the LG Optimus something-or-other) will arrive in May. Is Samsung bothered? We doubt it.

Not to be flippant, but I haven't seen anyone with an LG phone since the Viewty. In fact, I still see folks with Viewties.
Where are they selling?

Maybe it wasn't such a good strategy to try and beat the iPhone initially with overpriced featurephones? Or 3D? Or WP?

I'm wondering what will the DIL do?

Shades of Huawei's D1Q and P1S.

I noticed on ur-mobile.com that the S3 is now due for launch in mid June. Can't wait to get one.
