Information pertaining to an LG model D300G phone uncovered in the FCC database suggest a first LG Firefox OS phone is nearing release. The FCC filing documents indicate that the D300G phone will come with a roughly 4.3-inch display, WiFi, GPS, and GSM/WCDMA 850/1900MHz cellular support.

In August, a Bulgarian LG executive revealed plans to release a Firefox OS product early next year. Now PhoneArena thinks it may have dug up an LG Firefox OS phone on the FCC database.

Little information was supplied by the FCC filing documents on the LG D300G phone, which is said to come with a roughly 4.3-inch display, WiFi, GPS, and GSM/WCDMA 850/1900MHz cellular support. Yet, the site then matched it up with a UAP file for the LG D300, “which confirms that the device runs Firefox OS,” says PhoneArena.

If this is indeed LG’s first Firefox OS phone, its display is larger than the two major Firefox OS models that have appeared to date, namely the 3.5-inch Alcatel One Touch Fire and ZTE Open. Geeksphone’s unlocked, developer-oriented Peak+ phone also offers a 4.3-inch screen, however. This would suggest the LG D300G may have a more robust processor than the single-core Snapdragon found in the Alcatel and ZTE phones. The Peak+ is equipped with a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 8225 system-on-chip.
