Image of Verizon branded LG Lucid 3 (VS876) leaks

A tweet sent out by master leaker evleaks reveals an image of the Verizon branded LG Lucid 3 (VS876). The original LG Lucid launched almost two years ago and the sequel was released last April. The picture of the device shows that LG has sharply reduced the size of the bezels from the previous model. LG has also changed the squared off corners to rounded ones.

The design of the camera and flash on the back of the phone looks similar to what LG employed on the LG Lucid 2, except that the camera lens itself is higher up on the back of the rear panel, as is the single LED flash. And of course, Verizon couldn't leave that much unmarked space on the back without putting its iconic trademark and 4G LTE logo on it.

Based on the launch dates of the original LG Lucid and the LG Lucid 2, we'd expect to see this new model launched at the end of this month, or during the first week of April. So far, there hasn't been a peep about the phone, which means we have no word yet on pricing or specs.

How the hell does this have button on the sides yet it seems to have nearly the same bezel as G2?

When LG said they had to move the buttons to the back because the side bezels were so thin they couldn't find them into the casing, they lied. Moving the buttons to the back was design choice. Plain & simple. I'm not saying it's a good or a bad thing because I have yet to extensively use them, I'm just saying that if they wanted to put the buttons on the side, they could have.

Wow. I was playing with the LG G2 at Best Buy last Sunday, so getting this would be nice. However, I use a Wi-Fi phone, so hopefully getting this off contract won't entail such a hefty price tag. One thing to note is that the device's default messaging app is Verizon Messages.That's definitely interesting. LOVE the design of this one. Selling my iPod touch 5 to get a new Wi-Fi phone. Either this, or the Moto G. Another thing to note, the phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat. You can tell this because of the status bar and that it is gray and not the hideous blue color LG usually uses for their phones.

Lucid 2 had an awesome battery life so I hope this one has around 3000mAh.

Yes this good they probably found a way to put buttons on sides with the smallest bezel is impressive, lets hope the G3 is built the same.

LG phones need a huge design overhaul. Unlike HTC, Sony etc. they just keep getting lost in an ocean of Samsungs

ah yeah see LG's design awards....

Looked it up. They deserved those awards. I'm not gonna lie. BUT that was with their older Optimus series in early 2013. Also, while the G Flex won a gold award at the iF Design Awards 2014, Sony Mobile walked away with 5 others. For 5 devices. Not just 1. My point being that other underdog OEMS seem to try hard to distinguish themselves from each other while LG seem to 'copy' from Samsung recently, as you can see in this comment section. I don't think current LG designs are bad but they could do better.

Of course Verizon adds 100 of their logos to the device.
