LG Phoenix 3 coming to AT&T on March 10


Less than one year after the debut of the LG Phoenix 2 at AT&T, the carrier has decided to pick up and start offering the sequel of the mid-range Android smartphone.

AT&T will sell the LG Phoenix 3 starting on March 10. It looks like AT&T GoPhone customers will be able to grab it for just $79.99 online or at AT&T's retail stores and authorized retailers.

Unfortunately, for reasons unknown, the LG Phoenix 3 comes with few changes over the previous model, and they're not on the positive side.

For example, the smartphone sports a 5-inch display, just like the Phoenix 2, but it only supports FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) resolution, whereas the predecessor comes with an HD (720) screen.

AT&T confirmed the LG Phoenix 3 would be powered by a 2,500 mAh battery, as opposed to the Phoenix 2 model that included a smaller 2,125 mAh battery.

Although the name of chip inside the LG Phoenix 3 is unnamed, the carrier states the phone packs a quad-core processor and 16GB of internal memory.

The amount of RAM hasn't been mentioned either, but the LG Phoenix 2 comes with a quad-core MediaTek CPU and 1.5GB RAM, so the new phone could feature the same configuration.

The Phoenix 3 has a 5-megapixel camera on the back, as well as a secondary camera on the front, which can be used for selfies. It's not coming out with Android Nougat, as LG has decided to ship the new Phoenix 3 smartphone with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board.

Ugh. I'd rather get a 16 GB BLU R1 HD with Amazon ads.
