Verizon Wireless looks to be putting the final touches on a handset called the “LG Lucid 4G.” The rumored phone is a mid-level device the largest cell carrier in the United States is supposed to offer sometime around March 29, in the $200 price range. The Lucid 4G will bring a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch IPS display with Gorilla Glass (800×480), Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 1700 mAh battery and 8 GB internal storage.
Droid-Life originally got the scoop and received a photo taken from Mr. Blurry Cam of the specs on the LG Lucid 4G, which is pictured down below. As you can see in the picture, the Android smartphone is a basic mid-range handset that’s perfect for newbies who want to get their first Android experience on the cheap.
That said, like all mid-tier Android smartphones, don’t expect to get an update to the latest and greatest from Google — Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 — anytime soon. Furthermore, you should expect to see a slew of LG offerings to rollout for the remainder of the year, as the company tries to accomplish a lofty ambition of 35 million smartphones sold this year.
Let’s wait for LG and Verizon to announce something official on the Lucid 4G before we judge it too harshly.
