Dubbed the next LG "superphone," the rumored LG LS970 is boasting the kind of specs that will whet anyone's appetite.

According to BriefMobile, the LS970, or "Eclipse" as its working title is known to be, may be available on Sprint's yet-to-exist 4G LTE network.

Other speculations include that the device will be released in the fourth quarter of this year, and it'll have a 4.67-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1,280x768 pixels, a whopping 13-megapixel camera, and a 2,100mAh battery.

Perhaps most impressive, however, is the 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Krait processor it's rumored to be equipped with. This Qualcomm CPU will also be paired up with the equally exciting Adreno 320 GPU, so expect blazing-fast internal speeds and great graphics rendering.

Two other rumors are that the LS970 will have NFC capabilities, and that it'll run on version Ice Cream Sandwich of the Android OS -- which just puts the most appropriate cherry on top of this delicious device.
