LG Prada 3.0 Announced; Powered by Android 2.3.7

A new Android smartphone by LG, the LG Prada 3.0, was leaked earlier today by a German blog. Soon after the leak, LG Germany announced it officially.

This is the first smartphone in the Prada series. It will be powered by Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread, and will come with LG’s custom Prada user interface, which looks quite ugly in my opinion. It comes with some good hardware specs, but offers nothing that we haven’t seen before.

It has a 1 GHz dual core TI OMAP 4430 processor, and will presumably come with 1 GB of RAM. It sports a 4.3 inch Nova Plus display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It also offers an 8 MP camera which can record 1080p HD videos. It has a 1540 mAh battery and comes with 8 GB of internal storage with microSD support. It also offers NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and HSPA+ connectivity.

While the specs are good, I don’t see many people lining up to buy this phone. The Samsung Galaxy S2, which was launched 6 months ago, is a much better option, as is the new Galaxy Nexus. The LG Prada 3.0 is too late to the game and it’s not going be priced competitively either.
