Hello, there beautiful. You're just one of many seductive Windows Phones we've seen within the last 24 hours, but we have to admit you are the newest. LG's first real Mango-powered phone has been given the proper leak treatment ahead of MWC by PocketNow, who received the render above and plenty of details about this new device.
Once dubbed the Fantasy, the new name in the running is LG Miracle and its slated to be a mid-range phone similar to the HTC Radar. The leak goes on to drop some knowledge about its 4-inch NOVA display, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 8 GB of internal storage, 5-megapixel rear camera with 720p video recording, and finally a VGA front camera.
From there the leak moves into uncharted territory and we'll tell you how in a second. PocketNow claims the Miracle's connectivity options will include 5.0GHz-capable 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, and support for NFC. If that last bit of info is correct, it's possible we could actually be staring at the first real Tango-powered device. While the Windows Phone 8 leak was said to include NFC, it's possible Microsoft is adding limited support for it in Tango -- but that's speculation on our part.
Tango or not, the Miracle is shaping up to be a solid mid-ranger from LG to duke it out with the aforementioned Radar, the Samsung Omnia W, and the Nokia Lumia 710.
