A new Verizon phone has just showed its face and it looks to be LG-donned. The button configuration doesn’t immediately tell us this is simply an “Optimus One for Verizon,” but it’s not uncommon to see a phone’s externals get shuffled around a bit for release in another region. The name of the device will be LG Vortex according to our good friend The Droid Guy who was tipped with the information earlier today. The specs seem to match up almost identically with the Optimus One, including its 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen a 600MHz processor, GPS, Bluetooth, FM Radio, and Android 2.2.


It’s looking like a holiday launch for this phone if T-Mobile’s accessories roadmap for a similar phone by LG is anything to go by, but nothing is confirmed at this point. We’ve been wondering what phone Verizon would be adding next for their mid-range fans, and it looks like LG’s going to provide that filling once again as the Vortex would sit up next to the QWERTY-enabled Ally.
