LG Lucid gets official, launching this Thursday on Verizon
Remember that image of a mid-range LG phone that leaked with the Motorola Droid FIghter? Well, it turns out that the rumor accompanying it was at least half right. Verizon officially announced the pictured phone, called the LG Lucid, just today, and nearly everything about the device matches up nicely with what the leak predicted.
As expected, the Lucid is still a mid-range device, but is by no means bad. It will come standard with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP camera, and a 4-inch 800 x 480 display. At launch, the preloaded OS will be the same custom build of Android 2.3 that is found on the Spectrum, but like its larger sibling the Lucid is slated for an Android 4.0 update straight from the manufacturer.
With the high-end Spectrum at $199, it seems sensible that the Lucid would be priced at $99, but Verizon and LG managed even better and priced the Lucid at $79 after a $50 mail in rebate, All in all, the Lucid appears to be a very good high mid-range phone, with a dual-core processor and fast LTE, and the very cheap price only sweetens the deal.
If you're interested, the Lucid will go on sale this Thursday, March 29. However, if mid-range phone aren't your thing, then you may want to keep a lookout for the Droid Fighter, because now that the Lucid leak has been proven, the companion Fighter leak is much more believable.[Droid-Life]
