Unannounced LG Escape 2 found on AT&T's website (UPDATE)

The LG Escape 2 (H443) has yet to be announced officially by AT&T, but the phone can be found on the carrier's website nonetheless. The Escape 2 carries a 4.7 in-cell display which removes an extra-layer from the 720 x 1280 resolution screen. A quad-core processor is employed by the device, which features 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can use the 32GB capacity microSD slot. An 8MP camera is on back with a front-facing camera available for selfies. Lights are kept on thanks to the removable 2100mAh battery, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

The LG Escape 2 comes with some popular LG features such as QSlide multi-tasking so that you can use two apps at the same time, switching off between them. KnockOn allows you to tap the screen to wake the device, and Knock Code lets you set a specific tapping pattern to lock and unlock the phone. Quick Memo+ is also on board allowing you to write quick memos even during calls, and Gesture Shot lets you snap a selfie with a wave of the hand.

The handset also has LG's rear power and volume buttons. Pricing and availability are not included in the listing. We have some of the User Manual for your perusal in the slideshow below.

UPDATE: AT&T has priced the LG Escape 2 at $179.99 off-contract. With a two-year contract, the phone is just 99 cents. On the AT&T Next 12 plan, you put $0 down and pay $9 a month for 20 months. With the AT&T Next 18 plan, you pay 24 monthly payments of $7.50. If you're using AT&T Next 24, you make 30 monthly payments of $6 each. The 4.7-inch screen is said to be curved similar to the LG G Flex and LG G Flex 2.

Terrible specs. Not even worth buying.

Looks like AT&T got an old Moto G with a LG logo on it.

LG has really lost their mind. They are a third tier company. They have to charge LESS for BETTER specs until they can compete with the big boys. Not the opposite. Unfortunately, I predict their failure in the cell phone market if they don't wise up.

Bit high out the gate. Give it time, the pricing will come down to match the F60/Tribute/Transpyre pricing...

Sigh, even budget phones shouldn't have 1 GB RAM. It really isn't enough to fluently run the OS. Isn't even enough for iOS, based on people's complaints with Safari

You are exactly right Hito. There is no excuse. I was under the impression that they already crapped out a few "affordable" phones with less than one gig of ram. I think they were called the manga or mango.

What I'm trying to figure out is why LG is making so many unnecessary phones. They turning into the old Samsung!

Carriers demand a sub 200 priced device. Same reason you get phones like the Galaxy core.
