A new leak straight from Big Red themselves confirms the Best Buy leaked price for the Samsung Charge, but also gives us pricing for a couple phones we didn’t have info on before: the LG Revolution and the Droid X 2. The Verizon leak is of their “minimum advertised price” (MAP) list, which as the name suggests are the lowest prices that retailers can advertise for certain devices. In addition to confirming the Samsung Charge at $300, the list also shows the LG Revolution at $250, and the Droid X 2 at $200 for on-contract pricing.
The LG Revolution has LTE support, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a WVGA (480×800) screen, and Android 2.2. Whereas, the Droid X 2, though unconfirmed, is expected to have a dual-core CPU, qHD screen (540×960), and Android 2.3, but no LTE support. I’m not sure the LG Revolution is worth an extra $50 as an LTE-tax, especially with a lower-res screen and no Gingerbread action. But, it should also have Netflix preloaded, so that’s not too bad, right?
The LG Revolution and Droid X 2 are both slated for release in May. Of course, the Samsung Charge had been listed for an April 7th release, and that never came to pass, so as always, take the leaks with a grain of salt.
