When looking at the new photos on the FCC site, it does look like there is a memory slot, but can't tell what type.

There is a rubber cover on right side in the external photos, but if you look closer, it clearly says "IO CONNECTOR" on it.

...and looking at the internal photos, it's quite clear that is just a connector, and there is no memory card slot anywhere.

it makes no sense to include the media buttons without expandable memory. i wonder if they're gonna put some serious memory inside the phone. then they can stop us from transferring pics and such. hmmm, plus why ditch the standard lg battery?

They would have to if it has the buttons on the front for music. But with more internal memory the more the price goes up on the phone i wouldn't count on $100 or below with a 1 year.

Well, the A900 for Sprint has music buttons, and it only has about 50 MB of memory for music (and no memory card slot.) Same deal with the VX-8000.

I'm not saying that makes sense, but if the 8400 is like that, it wouldn't be the first time... 🙄

fcc website - detail - user manual (very bottom) - page 7

memory: 1 GBits NAND + 256 MBits LP-SDRAM

Am I the only one who reads the manuals? ;-)

First, 1 Gbit = 128 MB, which isn't that much. Bits are not the same at bytes.

Second, having many years of experience reading FCC draft user manuals, I can tell you that particular type of info is wrong almost 50% of the time.

It's such an early draft that most of it is probably copied wholesale from another user manual like the 8100, and half of it hasn't been updated with info for the new model yet. They usually use another phone's manual as a starting point. ...no sense in starting from scratch each time.

The FCC doesn't give a crap what the draft manual says as far as specs or instructions. All the FCC cares about is that is has the right disclaimers, etc. That's why the rest of the manual is often mostly bunk.

Wow. That's a slap in my face 🤣

I was so excited to see 1 gig, that I totally forgot that 1byte=8bit, 5th grade 🤭

BTW, the rumor among LG reps was that this phone might support MediaFLO. Have you seen anything witch might suggest it?
