Vodafone's first own-brand LTE smartphone for the UK leaked... in America

Vodafones first ownbrand LTE phone for the UK gets leaked in America

The FCC may be guardians of America's cellular devices, but the commission's staffers don't care too much for a company's secret release plans. The latest bundle of documents has revealed that the Vodafone Smart 4G has been passed fit for human consumption over in the US of A. Given that Vodafone doesn't have a branded presence in the colonies and the handset runs LTE Band 7, it's likely that this one's destined for a life in the UK. Presumably this re-branded Coolpad 8860U will be sold like the other Vodafone Smart range -- as a budget option for Brits who want 4G without having to pay £21-or-more per month to get a Lumia 625 for nothing.
