Nearly a month ago, we told you that Verizon was expected to take the LG Optimus F5 and with a few changes here and there, turn it into the LG Lucid 2. Not too long after that, we passed along to you a leaked photo of the LG Lucid 2 with the information to expect an April launch of the device. Well, the calendar has flipped over to the fourth month of the year and the word is that the LG Lucid 2 will launch this Thursday, April 4th, from the nation's largest carrier.
A couple of leaked photos make it clear that Verizon has made at least one major change to the LG Optimus F5, and that is with the battery. Instead of the 2150mAh cell that is scheduled to accompany the phone, the LG Lucid 2 will offer up a 2460mAh Silicon Oxide battery that should improve talk time. In addition, the Power Saving Mode on the phone can automatically monitor the battery life and once it detects only 30% remaining, certain programs and apps will be turned off, like Wi-Fi, screen brightness, Bluetooth, GPS and Sync.
LG is shipping the phone with Android 4.1.2 installed out of the box, so you don't have to wait for your Jelly Bean update. No word yet on pricing, but we could see this come in for well under triple digits with a two-year contract.
