Having been made official a few days before the start of MWC 2013, we were determined to get to know the LG Optimus F5, the company’s latest mid-range smartphone, a little better in Barcelona last week. The result, as you may already have enjoyed, was our Optimus F5 hands-on video.
For those who are wondering about the Optimus F5’s availability in America, we’re hearing that the phone will arrive stateside via Verizon Wireless.
According to Unwired View, the F5 has been tapped by Big Red to replace the aging LG Lucid 4G on its Android lineup. Aside from being stamped with the usual Verizon logo, the phone will also get a name makeover, as it’ll be known as the Lucid 2 instead.
Specs-wise, you won’t find anything too awe-inspiring, but the Lucid 2 offers some improvements over the predecessor, starting with its bigger 4.3-inch qHD display. The rest of the specs include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage with microSD support, 5MP main camera, 1.3MP front cam, 4G LTE, NFC, 2,150mAh battery, and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Expect the LG Lucid 2 aka Optimus F5 to hit Verizon stores in the coming months.
