Even though the Samsung Galaxy S III is still just a rumoured phone model, sources say that an unannounced D1L smartphone from LG will compete for the same customers

LG 2012 roadmap. Codename D1L

The Korean newspaper Digital Daily has reported that a 4.7-inches smartphone from LG might compete for the same customers. The rumoured LG model with code name D1L is supposedly equipped with a S4 Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm. The MSM 8960 platform has a dual-core Krait processor clocked at 1.5 GHz with a Adreno 225 GPU.

D1L will be launched in May according to the newspaper. It has a large 4.7-inches display with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution. The LG D1L will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. A LG official confirmed that the company is working on a phone model with the code name D1L, but refused to give any further comments.

Yes, dual-core can beat quad-core processors. Most mobile apps does not utilize multiple cores very well.

LG produced some phones with good hardware in the past, but they then spoiled them with the software.

I cant speak for the rest of the world but i dont think anything LG will do will work all that well in the UK. Being a phone geek i observe people every day who come in the store i manage and i can usually identify any manufacturers phone even if i cant ID the model and very rarely these days are there many LG handsets out there in peoples hands.
