LGL22 Isai that was unveiled as a part of KDDI’s Winter 2013 lineup few months back would get a successor soon. @evleaks has posted a press render of the upcoming LGL24 isai smartphone headed to Japan’s KDDI network. The smartphone has a narrow bezel, similar to Sharp’s Aquos phone and is expected to come with a display size of 5.5-inch or more.
HTC J One, a variant of the HTC One with a micro SD card slot was unveiled last year for Japan’s KDDI network in their Summer 2013 lineup. The LGL24 isai is expected to be unveiled in this year’s KDDI Summer 2014 lineup next month. The date on the press render shows 1st May, so it could be unveiled on the same date.
The LGL24 has a similar volume rocker placement on the back, just below the camera, similar to the LGL22. It also shows a new UI that is likely to be Android 4.4 (KitKat). It has a similar isai branding on the bezel, below the display and uses on-screen buttons. It also has 4G support as shown in the screenshot. Specifications of the smartphone is not available yet.
