The leak streak continues on Sprint and no — it’s not another mid-to-entry level device. This time, we have the LG LS970 making it’s way to the Now Network in the coming months and boasts the highest specs we’ve seen on a device to date.

The boys over at Brief Mobile were able to get an image and detailed specs for the LS970, known internally as the “G” — but launching possibly under the Sprint branded “LG Eclipse 4G LTE.” LG knows full well that they have to raise the stakes if they hope to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S3, and raise the stakes they have. First thing you’ll notice is the device is sexy. Dead sexy. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I’d even go as far as saying, I prefer this backside over the GS3’s (just sayin’).

But besides its wicked good looks are its almost scary specs. Whereas most devices launched/announced this year found themselves equipped with the dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, the G will arrive on the scene with a beefier APQ8064 chipset. This is essentially the quad-core version of the dual-core S4 we’ve been seeing lately, and has a souped up Adreno 320 GPU for even better gaming performance. The LS970 will also come with a 4.67-inch 1280×768 LCD display (IPS?), 13MP rear/1.3MP front facing cameras, 16GB of internal storage, 2,100mAh battery, measures in at only 8.6mm thick and features compatibility with Sprint’s upcoming LTE network. The icing on the cake? The LS970 will come with an ample 2GB of RAM, making all your multitasking dreams come true (leaked 16Gb of RAM is in gigabits).

I don’t know about y’all, but after reading over all those specs, I’m in desperate need of a cold shower. The LG LS970 is due for Sprint during the 4th quarter of this year. What do you guys think? Could this phone be enough to change your perceptions of LG? Will the LS970 will find its way into your pocket?
