The LG Prada K2 and LG 3.0 Will be Released in 2012
The Italian fashion label, Prada and LG plan to release a new smartphone, called LG Prada K2 in 2012. Some media outlets reported that the phone will feature dual-core processor and a 4.3” Nova display, although the Korean vendor hasn’t revealed the actual specification sheet. The first LG Prada model was released in 2007 when both companies tried to compete with the first Apple iPhone. The LG Prada II was released in 2008 and it featured 3G support and QWERTY keyboard.
Instead of Android or the then Windows Mobile, LG chose to run its own OS in the LG Prada II. The upcoming LG Prada K2 will feature the bright NOVA and it competes with Nokia 701’s display, which is claimed to have the same level of brightness. The phone will run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), which is powered by a dual-core processor and obviously, it will come with Prada’s signature styling. So far, both companies haven’t revealed the actual release date or the pricing, but hopefully, it will be upgradeable to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The LG Prada K2 offers an 8Mp camera with LED flash and auto focus, while a 1.3Mp front-facing camera should be enough for most video-conference sessions. Both companies also revealed another PRADA phone called the LG 3.0 and it’s nothing like the Prada K2. It won’t have capacitive buttons, which is an early indication that the phone may run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately, no other things have been revealed.
