Verizon seems to be engaged in the spring device updating business. It has just inconspicuously rolled out two entry-level phone sequels, naming them simply and suitably LG Optimus Zone 2 and Extravert 2.
The former, leaked out in press-friendly attire not long ago, is no Motorola Moto G “killer”, but at $49.99 contract-free.
This Optimus Zone 2 comes with Android 4.4 KitKat, a dual-core 1.2 GHz chip and 512 MB RAM make up the hardware configuration, with a tiny, low-res 3.5-inch 480 x 320 pixels display in charge of image reproduction.
The rest of the features are no hotter, including 2012-reminiscent stuff like a 3 MP rear-facing camera or 4 GB built-in storage.
LG low-ender, the Extravert 2 feature phone doesn’t run Android or pack a fancy processor, just basic sideways QWERTY slider sporting a 2 MP snapper and 3.2-inch 400 x 240 pix res panel. Yet it costs a mind-boggling $199.99 outright and, wait for it, $79.99 with two-year agreements.
