LG Optimus Zone 3 leaks out on its way to Verizon

Verizon is getting ready to launch a new affordable smartphone from LG. The Optimus Zone 3 has been given the leaked press render treatment by none other than @evleaks today.

The images show a 4G LTE capable device sporting software-rendered on-screen Android navigation buttons – not something often seen in this price range.

The Optimus Zone 3 will be offered with prepaid plans from the carrier, so it’s bound to be very cheap. Unfortunately no specs have accompanied the leaked renders. However, based on what the Optimus Zone 2 from 2014 was packing, you shouldn’t expect much.

The Optimus Zone 3’s predecessor had a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a 3 MP camera, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 200 at the helm, with just 512MB of RAM and a 1,700 mAh battery. Hopefully the new iteration will at least sport a 4″ display and 1GB of RAM.
