AT&T has quietly added a new LG-made Android 5.0 smartphone to its shelves.
The LG Escape2 is the follow-up to the LG Escape, an Android smartphone that AT&T launched way back in September 2012. Like the LG G4, the Escape 2 has a body that’s got a slight curve, which is meant to make it more comfortable to hold. Also like the G4 and many of LG’s other recently-released Android phones, the Escape2’s got a rear key design that houses the phone’s volume and power/lock buttons.
In terms of specs, the Escape2 has a 4.7-inch 1280x720 IPS display, 8-megapixel rear and 1-megapixel front cameras, 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and 4G LTE. Powering the Escape2 is a combination of a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a removable 2100mAh battery. LG has also included Android 5.0 with its custom user interface, which offers feature like Glance View for discretely checking your notifications and Gesture Shot, which’ll let you make a gesture to easily take selfies with the front-facing camera.
The LG Escape2 is now available from AT&T. Would-be buyers can get it for $0 down and 20 monthly payments of $9 each with AT&T Next 12, 24 payments of $7.50 with AT&T Next 18, or 30 monthly payments of $6 with AT&T Next 24. It’s also available for $0.99 with a two-year contract or $179.99 full retail. Considering its specs and price point, it looks like the Escape2 is the entry-level/affordable sibling to the higher-end LG G Flex 2 and LG G4.
