LG Spectrum 2

Back in August Android Authority reported on the existence of the LG Spectrum 2. At the time we knew very little concrete information, other than it would arrive on Verizon just like the original LG Spectrum. While Verizon has yet to officially announce the upcoming smartphone, they may not have to. A new sales listing has appeared on Best Buy and includes several new details regarding the Spectrum 2.

According to Best Buy, the Spectrum 2 is currently priced at $649.99 with no contract. While Best Buy doesn’t mention the subsidized pricing for the Spectrum 2, we do know that Verizon plans to offer a $50 rebate, thanks to a new leak from DroidDog. With two leaks hitting the net today, it is more than likely that an official announcement is just around the corner.

Wondering what kind of hardware the LG Spectrum 2 features? The new LG smartphone will have a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 display, 1GB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. Other specs include a microSD slot, an 8MP rear cam, 1.3MP front cam and Android 4.0 ICS.

This looks to be a reasonably decent smartphone, but it really doesn’t hold a candle when compared to the LG Optimus G or the rumored LG Nexus 4. With other more powerful options on their way, why would you buy the LG Spectrum 2? For many consumers, it will likely come down to affordability. What do you think of the Spectrum 2, interested?
