Verizon’s new dual-core LG Lucid 4G (Cayman) Android phone pictured
Initially known as LG Cayman, the LG Lucid 4G is expected to be released by Verizon on March 29. Of course, the handset has to be officially announced by the largest US mobile carrier first. But until this happens, in case you want to know what the Lucid 4G looks like, press images of it have just appeared over at PocketNow.
The Lucid 4G would have been considered a high-end smartphone a year ago, but now it’s just a mid-end one. It certainly doesn’t look bad, and features a 4 inch WVGA Nova display with increased brightness (700 nits), LTE connectivity, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5MP rear camera with flash and 1080p video recording, front-facing camera, and 8GB of internal memory.
The new handset will be launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board. Most likely, an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Gingerbread will arrive sometime after the launch.
For the moment, there’s no word on how much the LG Lucid 4G will cost. However, since Verizon is selling the LG Spectrum (which has better specs – including a 4.5 inch HD display and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor) for $199.99 on contract, the Lucid could cost $150, or even $100 on contract. We’ll probably find out more details pretty soon, so stick around.
