LG Optimus Exceed 2 to Come to Verizon Prepaid

Are you a Verizon customer shopping around for a new mid-range or budget Android phone with quite impressive performance features and an even better sleek design, it may be good news to learn that a successor to LG Exceed, also called Cayman or Lucid, is on its way to Verizon.

Thanks to a leak by the prominent online leakster @evleaks, we know that this new device, whose details are not really known yet, will be coming probably within the second quarter of 2014 and will most likely be exclusive to Verizon.  LG announced 5 new mid-range Android devices during this year’s WMC at Barcelona towards the end of February but this one did not feature on the list despite all the introduced devices seemingly headed for the US market.

This new Verizon Prepaid phone is likely to have only 3G internet connectivity because the leaked images show a 3G logo on the network bar and the absence of Verizon 4G logo at the back cover of the device.

LG Optimus Exceed 2

While not so much is known about this device, we expect that it should be a slight improvement from its predecessor the LG Optimus Exceed which had dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 480 x 800 pixels 4.0 inch display, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB onboard storage and a 5 megapixels rear camera.  I would speculate that Exceed 2 will have the same 4 inch display but with better resolution, at least 720p, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual core processor, the same 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB onboard memory and possibly a better 8 megapixels camera.

The specs are not that impressive, but the design is.  As you can see from the image, the LG Optimus Exceed 2 could give a high end device a run for its money.  If performance is not your greatest concern, this may be the best phone for you because it will go for between $99 and $149, just like its predecessor when it launched.

We will let you know when this phone becomes officially available or if any more information leak.

  1. For how much the smartphone costs on prepaid, yeah, many people could get something a lot better.

  2. It looks like the company designed this smartphone in a hurry. The logos are not really placed properly above the screen and they are way too big.

  3. Then it’s okay. But still, the money is not really justified for the hardware. At least that is what I feel. You get Android smartphones for low as $60 (but with an MTK chipset).

  4. So true! I say it is about time that Verizon brought out something new and better for their prepay plans. My parents use Verizon prepay plans. They were just complaining the other day about their cheap phones. I will have to tell them that this is coming out.

  5. It’s not a contract phone. Verizon’s prepaid service is contract free; that’s why it’s prepaid. (That’s also why the phone costs more than it would if it were a contract phone. Verizon isn’t making their money back on the phone through the course of the contract term.)

  6. Yeah, that’s a pretty bad resolution for a mid-range smartphone today. And if its $99 to $149 with a two year contract, then it’s just too much.

  7. I think “mid-range” phones should be a bit better than this, in terms of the display and the processor. The 1GB RAM is good enough.

  8. I think that now high end smartphones are reaching 2.5GHz+ in specs, shouldn’t mid-range smartphones be considered 1.5-1.8GHz? That said, we should see some better prepaid phones than this, right?

  9. Several friends and family members of mine use Verizon prepaid and would love to have a quality smartphone. Hopefully this will be one everyone can be satisfied with.

  10. Pretty cool! It is about time that Verizon puts a “decent” smartphone out for their prepaid plans. Not everyone wants to pay a fortune and buy into a contract.
