The leaking continues for LG's first real Mango powered handset ahead of its inevitable debut at Mobile World Congress, and this time you could actually get one shipped to your house. XDA user SoByX scooped up the Fantasy/Miracle from an LG tester and he's posted the pictures and video to prove it. Oh, and he's trying to sell it.
The pics are the furthest thing away from good quality, but they do lend credibility to his claims and it includes a picture of the 'About' page. The model number is clearly displayed as E740 so it looks like we have confirmation there, and the build number appears to be the 8107 update but it's hard to tell due to the blurriness. It also looks to have around 10 GB free for the user, so this could be a 16 GB model.
Interestingly it looks like the E740 does in fact have NFC built in. In the video SoByX posted, he points to an app in the list simply called 'NFC'. If it's real it's likely a prototype app included for testers and engineers only, but maybe LG also discovered a way to get the technology in there while sticking to the Mango we know and love. And so the plot thickens. Head on past the break for the video.
