Verizon subscribers looking for an affordable entry-level LG phone may soon have more options to pick from. If the latest leak from @evleaks is true (and there is no reason to suspect otherwise) the LG Optimus Zone 2 may soon land on Verizon’s prepaid service. There is no word on when exactly the phone will be available, but probably it will be soon. The leakster didn’t mention pricing, however, the device seems to be screaming budget-friendly.
LG Optimus Zone 2 Verizon Prepaid Phone
The LG Optimus Zone 2 appears to be a successor to the Optimus Zone released on Verizon prepaid service in the first half of 2013. The phone featured low-end specs and not particularly attractive design with some pretty sharp angles. So what can we expect of its successor? It’s hard to tell at this point, since no details regarding the specs are available. A photo tweeted by @evleaks reveals a compact device with smooth rounded corners which is in accordance with LG’s latest design language.
A camera without flash sits on the back, however, a front-facing shooter is nowhere to be seen. The Optimus Zone 2 will obviously ship with Android and a host of Google apps, though we can’t be certain which version of the OS would that be. Verizon logos on both front and back of the phone leave no room for mistake as to which carrier the handset will be headed to.
The Optimus Zone 2 clearly will be a low-end offering, as was its predecessor, however it should offer some kind of upgrade over last year’s model. As a reminder, key features of the original LG Optimus Zone include 3.2-inch 240 x 320 display, an 800 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of expandable storage, 3.2-megapixel camera and Android Gingerbread, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G connectivity.
