The VS840 received FCC approval for use on the CDMA/EvDo bands along with LTE band 13, which belongs to Big Red. The device is similar to the recently launched LG Spectrum and Verizon will probably market the LG Connect 4G as a lower priced option for its LTE customers. While it is unclear if Verizon's model will be upgraded, the version headed to MetroPCS will have a 4 inch NOVA display with WVGA resolution and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor will be under the hood. 1GB of RAM will be aboard the unit and the rear and front-facing cameras are 5MP and VGA respectively. Android 2.3 will be installed.
No word on when we might see the LG Connect 4G launch on either carrier, and of course pricing is not yet known. What we do know is that the FCC has given thumbs up which means one less thing that needs to be done before the phone is up for sale.
