Days after a new LG phone arrived at T-Mobile, a leak has emerged with info on another LG device that may launch at T-Mo in the near future.
An Android One version of the LG Q7 (pictured above) is reportedly coming to T-Mobile. XDA Developers user deadman96385 was digging through the kernel source code of the MetroPCS version of the LG Stylo 4 and discovered references to a device with the model number “cv5a”, the carrier “tmo”, the country code “us”, and the suffix “sprout”.
Google’s list of Google Play Support Devices says that the cv5a is the LG Q7. Meanwhile, according to XDA, the inclusion of the word “sprout” suggests that this is an Android One phone because that’s the suffix used on other Android One devices.
When it comes to specs, the files in the source code suggest that this LG Q7 will be equipped with a Snapdragon 450 processor. LG actually announced a regular version of the Q7 for the U.S. last month, and that device includes features like a 5.5-inch 2160×1080 display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13MP rear camera, and a 3000mAh battery, so it’s possible that this T-Mobile-bound Q7 will have similar features.
On the software side, it’s suggested that this LG Q7 will be an Android One phone with Android 8.1 Oreo. The benefit of Android One phones is that they typically run a simple Android UI and that they get monthly security updates for three years. While this LG Q7 may not be the most high-end phone around, its promise of regular security updates could make it appealing for customers who place a priority on security.
