LG Lancet, the company's first Windows Phone 8.1 handset, is now available at Verizon
LG and Verizon Wireless today quietly released the LG Lancet, a brand new, affordable Windows Phone 8.1 handset (the first from LG to run WP8).

As we told you yesterday, the Lancet is a rather modest device. Verizon is presenting it as offering "premium smartphone features but at a better value to meet a tight budget."

Powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, the Lancet sports a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels - a pretty small display, and a low resolution for 2015. Other features include LG's KnockOn (letting you wake the screen with just two taps), 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2100 mAh battery that can provide "up to 18.5 hours of usage time." The new handset also offers an 8 MP rear camera with flash, and a VGA front-facing camera.

Besides the LG Lancet, Verizon is currently selling two other Windows Phone 8 handsets: Samsung Ativ SE ($99 on contract), and HTC One M8 for Windows ($99 on contract).

You can buy the LG Lancet from Verizon for $19.99 on contract, or just $120 off contract. Interested?
