Verizon Wireless recently released the LG Lucid 2 as a free on-contract device and while we were generally pleased with that handset in the time we spent with it, we are not entirely sure the same can be said about another entry-level device. The latest is the LG Optimus L3, which is said to be coming to Verizon as the LG Optimus Zone. Keep in mind though, we are talking about the Optimus L3, not the Optimus L3 II.

Basically, assuming this plays out as expected, Big Red will be bringing a year-old device to market. That by itself should tell you something about the specs. The details are coming by way of @evleaks who notes the handset will arrive sporting the model number of LGVS410PP. Perhaps more telling of the age, the handset is said to be running Gingerbread.


If you can get past that, which we aren’t sure many can — even for free, the handset will have specs to include a 3.2-inch (320 x 240) QVGA display, 800MHz processor and 3.15 megapixel rear-facing camera. Needless to say, Verizon Wireless is expected to offer the Optimus Zone for free.

Sadly that is free on a two-year agreement though. Those who may find themselves crazy enough to consider this handset should begin looking for availability to begin sometime around the end of the month. If nothing else, the one item we can see that is positive is the fact the handset is small in size, which actually may be appealing for someone.
