This Verizon-bound handset was first spotted a few weeks back a long with an unconfirmed list of specs, but a newly-leaked LG document has confirmed the goodies to come nestled in the mid-range device.
Originally known as the Cayman, the seemingly Gingerbread-powered Lucid 4G will indeed sport an unnamed 1.2GHz processor, 8GB of internal memory, and a 4-inch WVGA NOVA display swathed in a protective layer of Gorilla Glass. Oh, and who could forget its support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network, and the ability to share that high-speed connection with up to 10 additional devices. All of that (plus a 1700 mAh battery) is going to be crammed into a frame that’s .45-inches (11.4mm) thick, so it’s shaping up to be a bit of a handful too.
As is usually the case, the Lucid’s middling specs are expected to be accompanied a low price tag, though how low is still in the air. Given that the 2-month old LG Spectrum still runs users around $200 (depending on the deal you’re able to nab), I think it’s very likely we’ll see this thing debut in the $99 to $129 range — any higher and the companies and involved are kidding themselves.
I don’t see much appeal in this little guy, but it could buck expectations and turn out to be a solid little mid-range smartphone. Recent reports put the Lucid’s release date near the end of this month, but I’d advise you to hold off for a bit — next month looks like when the real fun is set to start.
