The LG H440n’s early debut could be the first sign of an upcoming H-series, although there’s little other than the leak to go on at this point.
The H440n would be LG’s first handset to tout the ‘H’ prefix, with the firm’s current flagship range instead opting for the letter ‘G’ (read: LG G3).
This could mean the H-series will come in at a different price point than LG’s highest-end fare.
A mid-tier approach for the H440n could be especially likely as the benchmark revealed it would boast a distinctly average 1280 x 720 display resolution.
The LG G3, by comparison, sports a gargantuan 5.5-inch measuring in at a 2560 x 1440 resolution.
If the new device does come to fruition, the LG H440n will be the European model, with two variants also set for a US release, namely the T-mobile LG H441, and the AT&T LG H443.
What’s also interesting about the benchmark leak is that the new device was running Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google’s latest OS. Lollipop still hasn’t landed on the LG G3 yet.
Android 5.0 Lollipop officially launched last month, bringing with it 64-bit chip support, battery life improvements, better cross-platform functionality, and an overhauled ‘material design’ aesthetic.
While there’s no release date or official word on this device just yet, it’s expected that LG will publicly launch the H440n early next year, albeit with a more minimalist name.
