LG Announces the Lucid For Verizon Wireless, Boasts 1.2GHz Dual-Core Processor, 4G LTEOn March 27, 2012
For only $79.99 on a two year contract, Verizon Wireless is going to offer the LG Lucid Android smartphone starting March 29th. The Lucid represents a mid-range Android smartphone for LG, but don’t let the low price fool you into thinking it won’t last you two years. The LG Lucid, unfortunately, runs Android 2.3 out of the box, but LG and Verizon remind us that it will be upgraded to Android 4.0 in the near future. Personally, this is my only complaint after reading about the smartphone, but hopefully LG can remedy the situation as soon as possible after it launches. In terms of speed, the Lucid relies on its 1GB of RAM and 1.2GHz dual-core processor to handle all your multi-tasking needs. For web browsing, the Lucid taps into Verizon’s 4G LTE network where available. The screen is 4 inches (I would prefer 4.3 inches, but that’s a personal preference) and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. It features a 5MP rear facing camera with 1080p video capture and a front facing camera of unannounced MP. Again, the Lucid will cost interested consumers $79.99 on a two year contract following a $50 MIR. It’s nice to see LG work its way back into Verizon’s high-end and mid-range department with the LG Spectrum and the LG Lucid. Lastly, stay tuned for a full review of the LG Lucid in the coming weeks!
