New Version of the LG Optimus Net Passes Through the FCC – Bound for AT&T?
The last time we saw the LG Optimus Net it was in a handy Italian promo video showing all the in’s and out’s with the device. It looked like a pretty solid, mid-level phone and many believe it will be the replacement for LG’s popular Optimus One line.
What we didn’t know is if, or when this phone would ever make it stateside. Well, a slightly different version of that same phone made its way through the FCC today, the LG Optimus Net P690g, and according to the paperwork, looks to be supporting North American 3G/4G bands. Namely, AT&T’s 850MHz and 1900MHz bands.
Now, this doesn’t mean it’s for sure coming to the U.S. (I think come Canadian carriers support the same bands) but it makes it all the more possible. If this phone is, in fact, the successor to the Optimus One, I suspect, just like the Optimus One, we will be seeing this device on every carrier under the sun
