Verizon launches LG Optimus Zone (L3) and Exceed
Verizon has started selling two LG smartphones to prepay customers: the Optimus Zone, and Optimus Exceed.
The Zone is Verizon’s slightly upgraded version of the LG Optimus L3 E400, available globally since February 2012. It’s a low-end handset that runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread (with no planned update to ICS) and features: a 3.2 inch QVGA display, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.2 MP rear camera, 800MHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,540mAh battery. The Optimus Zone – pictured below – costs only $79.99 (no contract required).
As for the Optimus Exceed, this is just a renamed LG Lucid – yes, the first-generation Lucid (launched in April 2012). Sold by Verizon for $129.99, the Optimus Exceed runs Android 4.0 ICS, featuring a 4 inch WVGA display, 1GB of RAM, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and a 5MP rear camera.
Both the Optimus Zone and Optimus Exceed should be available as of today. They’re not listed online yet, but Verizon retail stores probably have them.
