LG shows off its Prada 3.0 Android phone, launches red Optimus LTE in Japan

LG has officially announced more details on its new Android smartphone made in collaboration with fashion house Prada.

Officially called “Prada Phone by LG 3.0”, the handset does look elegant – as expected – and measures 127,5 x 69 x 8,5 mm, hence it’s really thin (not Motorola RAZR thin, but close enough).

The new phone runs Android Gingerbread, and features: a 4.3 inch WVGA Nova display, tri-band HSPA+ connectivity (900 / 1900 / 2100 MHz), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5mm headset jack, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 processor, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1540 mAh battery.

The LG Prada 3.0 should become available in early 2012 for an unknown price.

Today LG has also launched the Optimus LTE in Japan. NTT DoCoMo is the only Japanese carrier that’s offering the handset, which has been customized with a red back cover especially for Japan.

Already released in South Korea, Canada and the US (where AT&T is selling it under the name of LG Nitro), the Optimus LTE is LG’s first smartphone to come with an HD (1280 x 720) display. It also features Android Gingerbread, LTE connectivity (obviously), 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
