LG is preparing a mid-range Windows Phone codenamed LG Miracle — it’s actually the same handset we saw in the wild back in December; at the time we speculated that it was another rumored WP7 known as the Fantasy. The Miracle, we now know, had allegedly been sold to an XDA member by a Romanian LG tester.

As was suggested at the time, the Mango-powered Miracle does indeed feature a four-inch WVGA display — and a NOVA one, at that, promising to make this one of the brightest Windows Phones to date. We’re also looking at the standard 1GHz Snapdragon, 8GB of storage, a 720p-capable five-megapixel rear camera, and a VGA-class front-facing webcam.

As far as connectivity goes, Miracle should arrive with a 14.4Mbps HSPA radio, 5.0GHz-capable 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. Perhaps most interesting is the fact that Miracle is also said to be endowed with NFC tag-reading capabilities, although it was not clear exactly how this Windows Phone 8-era feature was being implemented.

Look for Miracle to be released sometime this spring, following a Mobile World Congress debut later this month.
