    LG Lucid 4G Set To Launch on VZW w/ a Nice Price Tag Attached




    The LG Lucid 4G is now official folks. The mid-tier device is set to launch on Big Red's network on March 29 with a very sexy $79.99 price tag attached. While the specs are nothing to write home about, they certainly are worthy of a mention. With an $80.00 price tag, the specs are a fantastic value:
    • Android™ 2.3 Gingerbread, upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    • 5-megapixel rear-facing autofocus camera with flash and full HD (1080p) video capture
    • Front facing camera for video chatting with friends and family
    • Video Producer – create and edit HD videos right on Lucid by LG
    • 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM for fast Web browsing and multitasking
    • Virtual QWERTY keyboard with Swype® technology
    • SmartShare – share media with friends and colleagues wirelessly to DLNA®-enabled devices

    Wonder how the screen looks. If it has a decent screen that would be a very nice phone for $80.

    What's the screen resolution? It's 4" so I'm guessing like qHD? Maybe 720p? I'm lost to how this is a "mid-tier" phone. Spec wise it's pretty much the same as the Galaxy Nexus, RAZR, ReZound, and Spectrum.

    It's a WVGA screen (480x800) and I suspect the dual core 1.2GHz CPU is based on the Cortex A8 and not the A9. Right now, pretty much any sub-qHD device is considered "mid-tier"- but nowadays "mid-tier" isn't necessarily a bad thing, in this case it could mean a nice fast device at a great price.
