Phone Arena¬†wrote a couple of days ago that the South Korean company is working on a 6.4-inch smartphone that aims at Xperia Z Ultra’s market share.

Without mentioning anything about the actual name of the LG phablet, or at least about its codename, all we can say for now is that the terminal will be a powerful competitor for Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra.

Sources close to the matter quoted by the folks at Phone Arena claim that the new device will boast about a 6.4-inch display with full HD resolution, while sporting an 8 MP primary camera with LED flash. The processing tasks will be handed by a Snapdragon 800 chipset and the technical specs list also includes 3 GB of RAM.

Rumor has it that the 6.4 incher will run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, thus, we won’t see it hitting the market sooner than October, when Google is expected to launch the new Android iteration.

It’s interesting how LG plans to return on the segment dominated by devices with big screens, and after we’ve seen the LG G Pad 8.3 tablet being announced earlier this month at IFA 2013, now we are glad to hear that the Korean phone maker has serious plans to become more competitive on the phablet market, too, after its Vu line-up failed to become mainstream.
