The original LG Lucid came to Verizon just a little over a year ago as a midrange device, and today we got word that its sequel, the Lucid2 (VS870), is now ready to show up in similar capacity. Said to be Big Red's version of the LG Optimus F5, the device is aimed at the first-time smartphone buyer and is available online for free (with a two-year commitment) beginning April 4th, while retail availability will be in the coming weeks. Among its boasted features are a Starter Mode with a simplified UI -- much like what we've seen on Pantech phones recently -- as well as a 5MP rear camera, 4.3-inch qHD IPS display, 2,460mAh battery, Android 4.1.2, unspecified 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. Wireless charging will also be available if you purchase a separate battery cover for $40. Hit the press release below for more specs and details.
Note: The press release gives two online availability dates (today and April 4th) but LG has confirmed to us that the former is simply a typo.
