Verizon Wireless has quietly launched its latest Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone in the LG Lancet. The phone will be the first Windows Phone to feature Verizon’s Advanced Calling 1.0 service, allowing Lancet owners to make high-definition voice calls via Verizon’s LTE network to other Verizon customers with compatible smartphones.
The phone runs Windows 8.1, and also features select functionality from LG’s Android smartphones, such as KnockOn for waking the phone and Quick Memo for capturing screen shots and taking notes. In terms of specifications, the Lancet has a 4.5-inch display, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8-megapixel main camera with LED flash, 8 GB of internal storage, and support for memory cards up to 128 GB.
The full retail price is $119.99 from Verizon, and is priced as low as $5 monthly on Verizon’s Edge installment program, or $19.99 on a new 2-year agreement. The phone will be released next week in stores and is available today online from Verizon.
