Verizon already prepping LG enV, VX8550 sequels?

updated 10:50 am EDT, Fri August 24, 2007

LG VX10000 and VX8800

Two mystery LG phones destined for Verizon have been confirmed in early form, courtesy of two FCC filings made public late this week. Though confidentiality terms prevent photos and most other telltale signs from being leaked, the VX10000 is most likely a sequel to the enV (also known as the VX9900, pictured) and is reportedly thinner than the relatively think enV and could also add a large, touch-sensitive screen to the inside of the phone.

Verizon will also receive a more modest phone, the VX8800; the 8800 is expected to be a slider in the vein of the just released VX8550 and would represent an upgrade to the music phone, though any changes to the scroll wheel, storage, and EVDO Internet access remain unknown. LG has asked the FCC to maintain a confidentiality request on photos and other revealing data for the next six months, pointing to a release in early spring for Verizon's network. [via Phone Arena]
