LG may be working on a Windows Phone device, according to a recent image leak. Claimed to be called the LG Uni8, the smartphone has been pictured in an image render running Windows Phone 8.1, with the leak suggesting a possible return to the software platform by the smartphone manufacturer, years after it released the Windows Phone 7-based Optimus 7.

The image from EVleaks reveals little else about the device, though the site claims it is set for a release sometime in 2014. The render does appear to show a thin bezel, with the top space above the screen being barely thick enough to locate a camera, though the buttons at the bottom appear to be capacitive rather than software-based versions.



LG indicated in mid-2012 that it was not interested in Windows Phone due to a low market share. "The total unit[number] of Windows Phone sold in the global market is not a meaningful figure," a spokesperson said at the time. Since then, Windows Phone has gradually increased its market share, though it still pales in comparison to the share owned by Android and iOS, something which may have caused LG to change its mind.
