LG Lancet is the new Windows Phone for Verizon
Unofficial specs leaked ahead of launch
The LG-branded Windows Phone leaking through different sources over the past few months is now almost official, as Windows Central has published some promotional materials revealing the phone’s name and hardware.
LG Lancet is a budget-oriented device running Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, designed for Verizon Wireless. The phone has a 4.5-inch display with the low-screen resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. While the display may disappoint you, the processor looks promising for a low-end device. A quad-core Snapdragon 410 CPU is powering the LG Lancet, so you can connect to the fast LTE/4G network on Verizon Wireless.
According to the leaked documents, the phone has an 8-MP camera on the back, VGA front-facing camera, 8 GB internal storage, microSD, and a 2100 mAh removable battery. The LG Lancet has dimensions of 129.8 x 64.8 x 10.7mm and a weight of 143 grams.
As you can see, the LG Windows Phone for Verizon is a typical low-end device that can compete with the recently presented Lumia 640. This LG-branded phone comes with some interesting software features such as LG Knock – the same as double tap to wake up found on same Lumia devices.
Verizon and LG are yet to make the smartphone official, so we still don’t have any official information about availability and pricing.
