When it comes to Windows Phone, it’s safe to say that most minds turn to either Nokia or HTC these days. Well if you’re looking for a bit more variety, it seems that you might be able to add LG to that list because according to a report by The Korea Times, it seems that LG is interested in returning to the Windows Phone scene with a Windows Phone 8 handset of their own. For those who might remember, LG attempted to release a Windows Phone 7.5 device called the LG Fantasy which was said to be making its way onto Sprint’s network, but unfortunately that did not happen and we’re not sure why LG decided to cancel their plans for the device.
There were also a slew of contradicting reports which suggested that LG’s focus would be purely on Android and that they would be abandoning the Windows Phone platform, which was then later denied by LG themselves (although the lack of new LG Windows Phone handsets would suggest otherwise). In any case, LG has been making a name for themselves recently with the Optimus G, the world’s first Android smartphone with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, and by being the company responsible for the manufacturing of Google’s Nexus 4 handset. Either way with Windows Phone 8 being a huge improvement over the Windows Phone platform when it first launched, it might be possible that LG sees a future with it. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information, so stay tuned for more updates.
