Yes, it was more than a week ago that LG announced their upcoming smartphone, the LG Optimus Hub, but an official announcement amounts to nothing if the device is not going to pay a visit to the FCC – the gateway of approval before anything electronic is actually considered to be safe to release to the market. No idea on whether the model that made it to the FCC is actually an international model or one which will be headed for the US specifically, but we do know that the LG Optimus Hub is set to support 1900 and 850MHz bands. Just which carriers rely on those frequencies? We’re looking at AT&T, Bell, Telus and Rogers in North America, so it remains to be seen just how the individual carriers will decide to brand such devices.
Normally, anything that arrives at the FCC will take a very short time before making it to the market – and I would say the same applies here, so stay tuned!
