It's great when information that we pass along to you turns out to be right on the money., For example, last month we told you that Verizon was going to take a Sharpie, cross out the LG logo, add a larger battery, and turn the LG Optimus F5 into the LG Lucid 2
. After that, we passed along a leaked picture of the LG Lucid 2 decked out in Verizon finery
. Yesterday, we told you to expect the LG Lucid 2 to launch on April 4th
. And sure enough, Verizon has officially announced that on Thursday the LG Lucid 2
will be available online for free
with a signed two-year contract. The phone will hit Verizon stores a few weeks afterward.
Some of the LG features on the phone include QuickMemo, which lets you use you finger as a stylus to take notes, and then send it as a captured screenshot to friends and family. Video Editor and Video Wiz turns your LG Lucid 2 into a mini editing studio for videos and an optional wireless charging pad allows you to charge up your battery sans wires. If you are a newb to the world of smartphones, Starter Mode has five easy to use home screens which include large, pre-set widgets allowing you to use your LG Lucid 2 while still learning all of the things that smartphones can do for you.
