Where has LG been during Windows Phone 8’s first year on the scene? The company released a pair of Windows Phone 7 handsets back in the platform’s day (above), but hasn’t continued that involvement so far as WP8 is concerned. From time to time we’ve heard LG mention its aspirations for Windows Phone 8 – back in January, it even sounded like there might be multiple LG WP8 models – but we’ve ultimately had nothing to show for it all. As we wait for such a device to actually arrive, LG is once again talking about its plans, and confirming a WP8 smartphone is under development.

This info comes to us from LG India’s Managing Director Kwon Soon, who said that while LG’s primary focus will remain on Android, development is currently underway on a WP8 model. In fact, he seemed more optimistic towards Windows Phone than many execs we hear from, remarking, “we believe that Windows will pick up going ahead, as Microsoft is pumping efforts into it.”

For the moment, there aren’t any specific launch plans, and we don’t even have a general launch window; that could mean that things are still early along, so we might have a bit of a wait on our hands.
