LG Secret for ATT at FCC
LG's Secret luxury slider is inbound for AT&T, as an FCC filing published today has confirmed the carrier's plans. Although images of the phone itself conspicuously black out the AT&T logo, the entries include a copy of the manual for the phone that clearly mentions AT&T as well as carrier-specific features like its music store, navigation and MEdia portals. It should also have native 850MHz 3G for AT&T's network.
The cellphone is otherwise very similar functionally to the Secret that launched in Europe, with its namesake feature a touch-sensitive navigation pad that hides the controls when they're not in use. A 5-megapixel camera with 120FPS video capture, an accelerometer and a carbon fiber back also separate the phone from the normally mid-range feature sets of other devices.
As is often the case with FCC tests, no clues have appeared that would confirm a release date for an AT&T-branded Secret; historically, these filings usually appear within a few months of an actual release. [via Phone Scoop]
