A couple of weeks back, a mystery LG-made Windows Phone device with Verizon branding made its appearance online. Well, we now know that the smartphone will be called the Lancet and it will be an entry-level option.
The last time we seen a Windows Phone handset from the South Korean company was a couple of years back. The LG Lancet is basically its first device on WP8.1 and according to the leaked information, the phone will also be carrying the new Update 2 release.
This would make it one of the few non-Microsoft devices to have the newest software onboard. Windows Central has managed to get its hands on the official e-brochure and spec sheet of the LG smartphone.
According to the information revealed, the Lancet features an ergonomic design with rounded edges. And unlike the company’s new mid-range series, this phone has the power and volume keys found at the standard location and not on the rear panel. Where hardware is concerned, the LG device packs a 4.5-inch FWVGA TFT LCD for visuals.
