Meet The LG Lancet, A Windows Phone That Costs Only $120
Almost three years ago, Microsoft and LG broke up their ties. Both the companies went through good and bad days but, the friends of old days never came closer for any joint venture. Now this is May 2015; but you can mark it with a beginning of a new relationship between the above narrated companies.
The news goes like this: LG Electronics has announced a low-end handset for Verizon Wireless. The South Korean electronics giant has chosen Windows Phone 8.1 as operating system for its new smartphone called the LG Lancet. Since the ice has melted, it’s of no avail to lament what these companies lost due to their cold sentiments for each other. So lets see the brighter picture only; lets discuss the features of the announced phone.
Under the shell, the cost-effective handset will contain a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor to process the data until its 2,100 mAh battery exhausts. The 4.5-inch device displays objects at 854-by-480 resolution. Counting other specs: 8GB of internal storage with an option to expand it; an 8-megapixel rear snapper, and a VGA front camera.
Obviously, the specs are not very amazing but cost brings the equilibrium. The phone costs $120 only. But if the buyers want to sign on Verizon Wireless contract, they will be charged $20 extra.
Although the phone from LG is running Windows operating system, it will feature some of the Android features as well.
The phone can be availed through Verizon’s website.
