The LG Escape Gets Official With a Low Price Point on Ma’Bell
Android is everywhere! It is in all types of different phones and tablets from the highest end of the market to the lowest, but every once and a while a new Android handset perfectly meets somewhere in the middle of specs affordable pricing. The new LG Escape is one of those options. This amazing new handset bridges the affordability gap between the top of the totem pole flagship devices and the bottom that is filled with feature phones. The LG Escape has had a long arduous journey that has finally come to the starting line. A new budget minded Android device has hit the ranks of At&t’ 4G LTE network, let’s see what it has to offer.
The LG Escape was first spotted way back in the early days of August as it made its way through the halls of the FCC seeking approval for us silly consumers. During its stay in Uncle Sam’s house the Escape went by its birth name the LG P870. While its filing with the government didn’t show off any exact specs, its destiny with Ma’ Bell was all but confirmed. Fast forward to just yesterday and we see a leak of the LG Escape from the infamous EVLeaks. One day later, as not to let the juice slip, At&t announces the LG Escape as an official 4G LTE offering on their network. Availability of the new LG Escape is set to commence on September 16th and it will start at $50 bucks alongside a new two year contract. So what can you expect from a fifty dollar, LG made Android phone running on one of the fastest 4G LTE networks around? Awesome…that’s what. The LG Escape comes into this world running Android version 4.0 and is skinned up in Optimus form just as you’d expect from LG. The screen measures in at 4.3 inches and sports qHD true color IPS LCD technologies that offer up a 540×960 pixel resolution at 256 pixels per inch. Internally we can expect this bad boy to run with a dual core 1.2 GHz processor with 4GB of Ram and expandable microSDHC memory. The Escape also offers up a 5 mega pixel camera that knows all the old dog tricks including, HDR modes, auto focus, panorama and even 1080p HD video recording. An additional front facing 1.3 mega pixel camera can also be spotted up front. Additional connectivity comes from Bluetooth version 4.0, Wi-Fi, microUSB 2.0 and NFC. A rather large 2150 mAh battery makes it all come together while At&t’s legendary 4G LTE network is in full swing.
