The guys over at Wired View made an interesting find today when they stumbled upon an LG XML file today. Aside from the normal gibberish associated with these files, we see a codename for a new LG device. According to this XML file, it looks like LG is gearing up to release another smartphone codenamed p930. I know what you’re thinking, “How do we know its a smartphone and not just another tablet?” Well, the main clue is the “P” in front of the numbers is how LG identifies their phones while a “V,” followed by numbers, has so far indicated a tablet (Optimus Pad/G-Slate).

While there’s no indication on screen size, upon closer inspection you can see that the mysterious device will feature a 1280×720 resolution display and support for Edge/GPRS and HSDPA/HSUPA (still unsure on specific radio bands).

Now, this is all pure speculation but this leak definitely has my wheels turning. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have just stumbled upon Google’s Nexus 3, folks. Yeah, you heard it here first (unless I’m wrong then forget you ever read this). Word on the street is Google has something very special planned for their next flagship device and with a possible quad-core processor and 720p HD display, they just might be able to claim “firsties” on both accounts. I think I just got goosebumps…

What do you guys think? Could this be the Nexus 3? Or am I just chasing pavements?
