This new and mysterious phablet has received its NCC certification in Taiwan earlier this week, and it is looking fine. We can deduce that it is a phablet judging by its large display and its overall posture. LG has been in the news quite a lot recently, as it has been one of the busiest manufacturers on the market. LG’s G2 device, for example, is one of the best selling phones of the year.
The new LG-D686 features a 5.5 inch display capable of qHD resolutions. The device’s processing power comes from its MediaTek 6577 dual core processor running at 1 GHz. The LG-D686’s RAM memory isn’t bigger than 1 GB unfortunately, but the overall hardware specs compliment each others perfectly. As for the OS, the D686 will most likely use an Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, which is far from being new or revolutionary. Even so, by the time this device actually hits the market, some aspects regarding its software might change.
Because of the device’s MediaTek processor, the actual retail price of a LG-D686 shouldn’t be that high, regardless of its screen size. Furthermore, the phablet’s 8 GB internal memory is also quite mediocre, despite its 3040 mAh battery. Capable of working on a GSM/WCDMA network, the LG-D686 is actually the first LG device that uses a MediaTek processor. Whether or not this will turn into a lucrative collaboration, we can only wait and see.
