If you’ve heard a lot of speculation about the LG Prada 3.0 phone, you’ll be pleased to know that the wait is almost over. With the official press release out in the open (see below), more details can be learned about the PRADA phone by LG 3.0. As its name suggests, you can expect some nifty specs from the third partnership between the two big brands; one in technology, the other in high fashion.
The Prada 3.0 is equipped with a 4.3-inch NOVA display. Although it is not as spectacular as Samsung’s Super AMOLED screen, you can expect a thin form factor and brightness from it. In fact, it is the same screen found on the unsuccessful LG Optimus Black.
For its processor, the Prada 3.0 contains a 1GHz dual-core, dual-channel processor—the same one which can also be found on the LG Optimus 3D. It still isn’t as superior as the 1.5GHz CPU which is being raved about lately. It currently holds a customized Android feature on its Google Gingerbread OS. For Ice Cream Sandwich fans, LG has promised to provide an upgrade in due time.
The phone is also equipped with an 8MP camera on the back, expected to shoot up to 1080p of video. Rumor has it that the NFC is also part of the phone’s splendor. However, LG has yet to give a formal announcement on this.
Should You Buy It?
Despite its lack of power and specs, the only question left is: should you buy it? Well, if you’re after the Prada label, then you definitely should. Apart from getting the phone, you can expect a Prada docking station, Bluetooth headset, and a ‘fashionable Prada bag’ exclusive for the 8.5mm handset. There’s also a ‘Saffiano’ decoration embellished on its back.
An official UK release date has not yet been given. But the way things are heading, we should see the phone in stores by Q1 2012.
