LG Uni8 maybe company's first Windows Phone 8.1 device

LG maybe getting ready to release a Windows Phone 8.1 device of its own very soon. Microsoft said earlier this year that LG is one of the new manufacturing partners for WP8 devices, but LG execs shot down the rumor that they will be outing a phone with Microsoft's mobile OS in the immediate future.

However it looks the time to release a Windows Phone maybe closer than we think, as the folks from @evleaks have posted an image that shows a new Windows Phone 8.1 handset from LG. The tweet says "LG Uni8 (no sushi), 2014," indicating that the phone will be announced this year.

The only thing we can deduce about the LG Uni8 so far is that it will feature on-screen navigational keys, as well as a virtual shutter button, instead of a physical one on the side. The handset looks like your garden variety rectangular smartphone, though rather slim, and, judging from the Live Tiles column number, the screen size could be at least as large as on the Nokia Lumia 630, which also flaunts on-screen buttons.
