LG just announced that Verizon will offer its Lucid 2 Android smartphone online beginning on April 4. The device will be available to customers for free with a new two-year contract and will launch in stores in the “coming weeks.”
The LG Lucid 2 is equipped with a 4.3-inch qHD display, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, a 2,460mAh battery, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, expandable storage using a microSD card slot (up to 64GB), wireless charging support (with a $39 wireless charging backside accessory), Bluetooth 4.0 and a 5-megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p video.
