LG Optimus F5 Getting a Battery Boost for Verizon Debut as Lucid 2?

About a month ago, a press render leaked, showing off the LG Optimus F5 as it would reportedly land on Verizon, as the Lucid 2. At the time, we thought the only change between the F5 and the Lucid 2 would be a slightly different design for the phone’s exterior. A new leak, however, is suggesting that there could be some actual improvements made to the handset as it adapts for Verizon, including a new, higher-capacity battery.

According to this leak, LG is swapping out the Optimus F5’s regular 2150mAh battery for a 2460mAh component employing a new silicon oxide anode. The advanced materials would give the cell a higher power output without requiring a corresponding increase in battery size. To the end user, the change should be transparent, short of them now being able to appreciate longer operational times between charges.

Stores will reportedly receive their stocks of the Lucid 2 on April 4, so we could be looking at the start of sales before the week’s out.
