LG Lucid 3 brings Knock Code and Android KitKat to Verizon

LG Lucid 3 brings Knock Code and Android KitKat to Verizon
Verizon today released a new and affordable Android smartphone made by LG. Called LG Lucid 3, the handset comes as the sequel to last year’s Lucid 2, and is being introduced not long after Verizon released the LG Zone 2 and LG Extravert 2 (both offered to pre-paid customers only).

Unlike the Zone 2 and Extravert 2, the LG Lucid 3 is available to all Verizon customers. It’s free with a new 2-yr contract agreement, and $299.99 without contract.

One of the highlights of the LG Lucid is the fact that it runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat. That aside, the handset isn’t particularly interesting. Looking at its design and features, we can say almost with confidence that this is nothing more than an LG L90 that’s been rebranded by Verizon. Even so, here’s what the smartphone offers: a 4.7-inch qHD (540 x 960) display, Knock Code, LTE connectivity, quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, 5MP rear camera, and a 2,440 mAh battery.

The Lucid 3 is Verizon’s first handset to come with Knock Code - the new screen unlocking feature that LG heavily promoted earlier this year with the introduction of its G Pro 2. The new LG Lucid seems to be available starting today, both online, and in stores.

Could be a pretty strong competitor to the Moto G perhaps.

Um, the G2 received kit Kat these past few weeks among the four major carriers in the U.S. and was originally released with Jellybean..

Yeah, instead of reasonable discussion I find too many here like to talk out of their ass for everything. I never did care for the texture they used for the back of the Lucid 2. I hope LG would start using matte polycarbonate shells.

"That aside, the handset isn’t particularly interesting." You already mentioned that it's LG. No need to say it again. ;)

With plenty of low cost devices shipping with HD 720 displays LG could've done the same for the Lucid 3 and just keep the size at 4.5".
