Verizon and LG today announced in a press release that the new mid-range 4.7 inch smartphone
from the South Korean company, the LG Spectrum 2 will be made available on Verizon for $99 with a 2 year contract. The specs of this phone are quite impressive but the major selling point that the two companies focus on are the 4G LTE network connectivity, NFC and a free wireless charging accessory.
The Spectrum 2 phone packs a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and sports a true HD AH IPS 4.7 inch screen which according to Verizon makes the phone ‘stand out’ by ‘enhancing video viewing, game playing and web browsing experience’.
The HD display screen with a Corning Gorilla Glass provides accurate and livid colors, sharp text, clear images and crisp symbols on the screen. Other core selling features are mobile hotspot for internet sharing with other Wi-Fi devices, QuickMemo for capturing screenshots or draw using the finger and Bluetooth 4.0.
