LG Connect 4G passes through the FCC on its way to Verizon
The LG Connect 4G has already been announced by MetroPCS, but it looks like it’s not going to be the only carrier to sell this upcoming Android-powered superphone. A new version of the Connect 4G has been spotted passing through the FCC’s testing procedures. It has the model number VS840, and alongside the expected CDMA/EVDO connectivity, it also comes with support for LTE band 13. As you may have guessed, that’s the band that Verizon is using for 4G LTE services.
So expect the LG Connect 4G to be added to Big Red’s already impressive lineup of smartphones that support its new high-speed data network sometime in the future. Since these FCC filings seldom reveal anything else, we’re unable to tell you just yet when the Connect 4G will land at Verizon or for how much. But do stay tuned, as these things are usually leaked sooner rather than later.
If you need a quick refresher of the Connect 4G’s specs, it comes with a 4-inch touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 5 MP camera, and it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It may become the Spectrum‘s ‘little brother’ at Verizon.
