Last week, Windows Central received the full spec sheet and brochure for the upcoming, and still unannounced, LG Lancet with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, from Verizon Wireless. Now another report claims that the phone will actually go on sale on Thursday, May 21.
The report comes from Phone Arena, who received a leaked memo that was sent to Verizon stores. Unfortunately, the memo didn't offer a price for the LG Lancet but if the May 21 release date is real, we shouldn't have to wait much longer.
Here's a quick reminder of what the hardware and software will be like for the LG Lancet
LG Lancet Specifications (Verizon Wireless, unannounced)

One quick FYI: the leaked memo on Phone Arena mentions that the LG Lancet will be the first new Windows Phone device from Verizon in 2015. That means that the other new phone from the carrier, the Lumia 735 from Microsoft, will go on sale sometime after the LG Lancet.
