LG-VW820 makes another appearance heralding a new LG built Windows Phone for Big Red
It appears that LG might be prepping a new Windows Phone model. A report out of Germany today reveals that the LG-VW820 will be an entry-level Windows Phone handset. The model number appears on an Open Source software notice and again on an LG Open Source Code Distribution page. The former mentions a license that LG obtained from Microsoft and lists the Windows Phone Theme Manager 2.1.2. The latter shows that the LG-VW820 (the "VW" means that this particular model is going to Verizon Wireless) and the LG VW820SS are both Windows Phone flavored models.

The buzz around the water cooler has the LG-VW820 equipped with a 4.7-inch screen carrying a 480 x 854 resolution. A quad-core Snapdragon CPU is expected to be powering the unit, which will most likely feature 1GB of RAM. Whether this will be a Verizon exclusive is unknown at the moment.

The LG-VW820 was spotted back in February and again in December by mobile ad network AdDuplex. The phone is expected to touch down prior to the release of Windows 10 for Phones later this year.
