Leaked document details Verizon's LG Lucid

Although the handset is rumored to just be a week or two away, a list of hardware specifications has already surfaced.

Verizon's next Android smartphone, the LG Lucid (formerly the Cayman) is the latest handset that we can get a sneak peek of over the Intertubes.

Though it's not expected until the middle of April, Droid Life, predicts that the Verizon smartphone will be a midrange Android 2.3 Gingerbread-powered unit.

Details include a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 8GB internal storage, a 1700mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity, and support for Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), and GPS. The screen should be a 4-inch IPS display with an 800X480-pixel resolution.

Looking at some of Verizon's other 4G LTE handsets, I don't expect that the Lucid will be able to secure a $249-$299 price tag, as well. Instead, I'd be surprised if the carrier asks for much more than $99-$149 with a two-year service agreement.
