Via the Verizon blog, tomorrow marks of the LG Lucid 2 sliding into the Verizon stable of 4G LTE phones. It has the usual free-with-a-two-year agreement. Nothing else is really known outside of the specs for the phone and that it will replace the LG Lucid in its lineup. This phone was first seen in February and is also known as the Optimus F5, the Lucid 2 simply being the US version of the phone with its target audience being smartphone newcomers. While the actual price hasn’t been revealed, the two year deal for a free phone model is sure to move plenty of units.
As far as specs are concerned, the LG Lucid 2 will have a 4.3 inch display and a 5 megapixel camera that records in 1080p HD. The phone’s juice comes from a 2,460mAh battery and sports the dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 Krait processor. If LG Lucid 2 users get the unique battery cover from LG, the battery will be able to charge wirelessly.
Let’s not forget about storage. The LG Lucid 2 sports the 8GB standard onboard storage as well as 1GB of RAM. The LG Lucid 2 includes the industry standard microSD slot which can store up to 64GB. In addition to all of this, the LG Lucid 2 comes with Bluetooth 4.0 and QuickMemo and will run the Android 4.1.2 OS.
All in all, this looks like a niffy entry into the Verizon stable of quality 4G LTE phones. The original LG Lucid—which was released late March of last year–was well received by critics and users alike. Obviously it performed extremely well and had plenty of features for smartphone experts and veterans as well as newcomers. It looks as though the Lucid 2 will continue that standard of excellence. It’s more powerful and can hold twice as much as its predecessor in the microSD arena and also performs all of the same duties of the Lucid. Of course this is to be expected if Verizon were going to release it as the successor to such a success, right?
Again, look for the Lucid 2 to hit stores tomorrow. It will be free with a two year contract, which might be best considering the official price hasn’t been revealed (which is odd, mind you). The Lucid will still be available and supported of course, so don’t be concerned whether your favorite device is dropped or no longer being supported.
