A latest unannounced smartphone has been spotted at Bluetooth SIG which is named LG LS980. It is being reported that the smartphone could be the Sprint’s CDMA version of the recently released LG Optimus G2. The smartphone which is codenamed LG LS980 has a model number which closely resembles the one which is associated with the international version of the Optimus G Pro (E980).

That’s not all the “LS” in the code name may mean “LG Sprint”, but that is just speculation and guessing on our part. Still there is a possibility that the LG LS980 is actually the LG Optimus G Pro with Sprint flavor. So far the only carry which has brought the Optimus G Pro in the U.S. is AT&T. Sprint already has the Optimus G in stock so it won’t be a big surprise if the carrier decides to carry the latest offering from the Korean manufacturer.

But before you get all excited about the Sprint Optimus G Pro, new reports suggest that the LG LS980 is actually the Sprint Optimus G2. Android Police did some great police work and are stating that the Sprint Optimus G2 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) process and a Full High Definition display. The size of the display is however still not known. There is 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage.  LG LS980 has no microSD card slot, which is quite surprising. The LG LS980 packs a 13 MP camera with full HD video capturing capabilities. The smartphone runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

The Snapdragon 800 processor is yet to be ready for mass production, so it may take a little while before we see the LG LS980. That is if the rumor is true. If you have just bought the Optimus G Pro, don’t worry you have a great smartphone. We will update you if something new pops up.
