Unknown LG-D830 and Samsung SM-N7505 handsets spotted online

Two announced handsets with model numbers not seen anywhere else have been spotted online.


The LG-D830 could be a high-end device, as it follows the D8xx model number convention. The LG G2, for instance, had a model number D802. The Nexus 5 came with model numbers D821 and D820. From the user agent profile listing, we do not get much information other than the fact that the device features a full-HD resolution screen and comes with LTE.


The Samsung SM-N7505 is a single-SIM device that features a screen-size of 5.49 inches. There seems to be another variant of the same device with a screen size at 5.7 inches. From the listing on Zauba, we can see that the device was sent from Korea to New Delhi, India, where Samsung has a division that works on software services and wireless integration for its mobile devices. There were a total of eleven handsets that were sent to New Delhi, and it has been mentioned on the docket that the devices were for testing and evaluation.


The price for the device has been declared as $540 (INR 33,245), which is the best indication yet as to what this device might actually be. The Galaxy S4 in India was launched in India for $600, and the Galaxy Note 3 price was initially around $720. So it is unlikely that the SM-N7505 device would be a flagship offering.

However, the model number SM-N7505 is consistent with what Samsung uses for its Note series, with the Note 3’s model number being SM-N900x. So, this device could likely turn out to be a Lite version of the Galaxy Note 3. Samsung had just announced that it intends to launch the Galaxy Grand Lite at MWC 2014, so it could launch the Galaxy Note 3 Lite at the same time.
