Verizon Unveils The LG Lucid; ‘Mid-Range’ Android Smartphone With LTE Support
By on March 27th, 2012

After a lot of leaks and rumors, LG and Verizon have finally unveiled a budget Android handset, the LG Lucid. The handset will cost users $80 on a two-year contract with Verizon. However, the low price of the handset does not mean that LG have skimped on the internal hardware of the handset.

The Lucid packs a 1.2GHz dual-core processor (!), 1GB of RAM, a front-facing camera, and a 4-inch WVGA (480×800) resolution display protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass. The handset also sports all the connectivity features, including support for Verizon’s blazing fast 4G LTE network. Yes, the Lucid costs less than half of the previous generation Android handsets, and sports specs similar to them. On paper, the Lucid is one of the most impressive ‘mid-range’ Android handset announced this year.

The handset runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but LG has assured that they will be updating the handset to Ice Cream Sandwich before the end of this year. The LG Lucid will hit the big red’s network on March 29th, and as stated earlier will cost $80 on a two-year contract, with a $50 mail-in rebate.
