Verizon’s Motorola Citrus and LG Vortex get shown off in comparison chart
Verizon seems to love comparison charts that let its phones go head to head with the competition from other carriers. And we love the fact that they keep leaking.
Today’s chart leak brings us more details about the specs of the Motorola Citrus and the LG Vortex. These are both low-end Android smartphones that count affordability as one of their main features.
The LG Vortex has leaked once before, but hasn’t yet been acknowledged by Big Red. It looked like it was going to be a version of the LG Optimus One tailor made for Verizon, and while the two are very similar, there’s an important difference (aside from the looks): the Vortex has a QVGA (240×320) resolution touchscreen, while the Optimus One has an HVGA (320×480) one. Screen size is the same 3.2 inches though, and the Vortex also runs Android 2.2 Froyo. It comes with a 2 GB microSD card pre-installed and supports cards up to 32 GB in size. It has a 3.2 MP camera and comes with Swype, Verizon and Bing navigation (but Google Maps can be downloaded off the Android Market).
The Motorola Citrus is very similar in specs to the LG Vortex, only it runs Android 2.1. The screen is smaller at 3 inches, but has the same resolution, the camera is only 3 MP and there’s no Swype. Other than that, the features are pretty much identical.
The LG Vortex will probably join the Motorola Citrus on Verizon before the end of the year. Now all that’s left is for these devices to get priced.
