LG’s Windows Phone gets GCF approval, may hit market soon

In December we learned that LG was working on a Windows Phone.

The device was detected by AdDuplex and they revealed the device as the LG LGVW820, which featured a 4.7 inch 480×854 screen, indicating a low-cost handset.

Then MyLGPhones revealed the LG VW820  is heading to Verizon.

Now WindowsPhoneItaly.com reports that the handset has passed through the GCF, which is the certification forum for GSM handsets, suggesting the smartphone will be hitting shelves soon.

The smartphone will support  FDD-LTE 1900 (B2) / 1700 (B4) / 700 (B13) MHz, CDMA2000 1900 (BC1) / 800 (BC0) MHz networks, confirming I think the Verizon destination.

It also supports LTE UE Category 4, meaning a  maximum download speed of 150Mbps and 50Mbps up.

Unfortunately the device is expected to be a low-end smartphone with just a FWVGA screen, which is unfortunately very out of step with the HD screens we are seeing on even low cost devices. As such I think any expectation of great sales would be very misplaced.
