Verizon’s LG VX8560 and Samsung U440 pass FCC

Verizon’s LG VX8560 and Samsung U440 pass FCC
Yesterday, FCC approved two phones, whose model numbers hint that they are coming to Verizon Wireless. Unfortunately, nowadays it is hard to get any new information from such releases, and often, you cannot see anything, but the model number.

We’ve already known some facts for the LG VX8560, thanks to previously leaked information. It is a music-centric clamshell with a large audio control on the front and a landscape external display. The FCC gives one new fact – that it has an integrated FM transmitter, which is designed for streaming your music to a nearby stereo system (suitable for in-room or in-car usage).

The second model is the Samsung SCH-U440. Although the FCC only reveals that it is a CDMA phone with Bluetooth, from the model number we know it is BREW capable, and BREW Samsung in the U.S. means, it is coming to Verizon. Also by judging from it, we guess it will be the successor of the U410, hence, it is a mid-level phone. However, FCC approved another similarly modeled phone (U430) and at the moment, it is unclear what the differences between the two will be. Logically, U440 will be with higher-end features.
