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.
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.
