The information comes to Windows Central via the official e-brochure and spec sheet for the device.
The LG Lancet features an "ergonomic design" with rounded edges, 4.5-inch (854x480) TFT display, and an 8 MP rear camera. For a processor, users are looking at a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU and presumably 1 GB of RAM. The full specifications can are found below.

LG bringing some Android 'innovation'
Interestingly, LG is borrowing a bit from itself, adding a few features to the LG Lancet from their Android line. These features include:
- Knock On – Wake the screen or put it back to sleep with two taps
- Soft Light | Gesture Shot – Take great selfies with an illuminated screen or a simple hand motion (open/close fist)
Release date and pricing TBD
Unfortunately, we do not yet know when this phone will be announce or released. However, seeing as we are looking at the e-brochure and finished specification sheet, it has to be very close to releasing.
The phone itself looks like a competitor to Microsoft's Lumia 640 with some lower specs and, on the face of it, nothing amazing. However, mid-range devices do seem to be the sweet spot for Windows Phone these days, so it makes sense Verizon would choose this device.
It makes even more sense that Verizon, who has had lukewarm relationships with Microsoft and Nokia, would select LG for their mid-range phone. However, information passed on to us still tells us that a Lumia 735 will be available on the carrier soon as well.
