Verizon Wireless has had its fair share of smartphones released over the years, and in recent times as well, and here we are with one of their latest additions – the LG Optimus Exceed 2 that will make up part of Verizon’s range of prepaid smartphones. The LG Optimus Exceed 2 might seem rather familiar to some of us, and that is because this happens to be a rebranded variant of the LG L70 that was first announced earlier this year before Mobile World Congress kicked off in Barcelona, Spain, with MetroPCS selling it, too.
The LG Optimus Exceed 2 will be powered by Android 4.4 KitKat right out of the box as the mobile operating system of choice, where it will be accompanied by LG’s user interface enhancements to boot, where among them include Knock Code, KnockON, QuickMemo and QSlide apps.
As for its hardware specifications, here are some of the details to help you refresh your memory – the LG Optimus Exceed 2 will boast of a 4.5” display at 800 x 400 resolution, making it a wee bit larger than its predecessor, while losing support for Verizon’s LTE network, which means you would be stuck at 3G speeds. The Optimus Exceed 2 will run on a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, accompanied by 1GB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, have a 2,100mAh battery, boasts of a 5-megapixel with WVGA video capture ability, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Expect it to retail for $80 a pop with a prepaid plan.
