Picture Of LG Miracle Windows Phone Smartphone Pops Up

LG will launch the Miracle, a midrange Windows Phone 7 handset, soon and a picture of the device has been put online by Pocketnow.

The handset appears to be a Windows based version of the LG Optimus Black, one which was launched at CES in 2011.

Like the latter, it has a 1GHz processor (a Qualcomm Snapdragon), 8GB onboard storage, a five megapixel camera with HD video recording, a VGA front facing one, Wi-FI, Bluetoth and a 4-inch WVGA NOVA display.

There's also a rumour claiming that the Miracle will come with NFC tag-reading capabilities although this is not supported yet by WIndows Phone.

Expect it to be showcased at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona end of this month and to be released across Europe by Summer.

Some are saying that the Miracle looks like the Omnia 7 with a different button and an extra camera but no other added functionality.

The LG Optimus 7 has been for some time the cheapest Windows 7 smartphone on the market with its price falling to £200.

But the Nokia 710 can now be had for a fraction less and come with a number of added benefits like a faster processor and an array of Nokia-only features.
