From the looks of it, the Windows Phone Mango smartphone is slowly coming around as actual in the wild photos of the handset have been snapped by an xda-developers member who claims to have hold of the device. Specifically, he claims that a Romanian tester sold him the smartphone, and as you can tell from the snapshots, they look identical to the rendered shot of the handset.
4-inch IPS display and Windows Phone Mango. Aside from those two specifics, nothing else in terms of hardware is known – though, it’s expected to be a premium offering from LG.
As for a release time frame, it’s believed to become available sometime in Q1 2012, which means it can possibly launch somewhere between January and March – so let’s hope the wait is going to benefit the handset.
