We’re all familiar with roadmaps, at least in the tech sense. They’re the documents that companies use to indicate what they’ll be doing for the entire year. So it’s quite a treat for enthusiasts if one of them leaks. Like just what happened with LG’s.
The entire 2011 smartphone roadmap is definitely an interesting document and should get any fan excited. With seven phones lined up for release, it should get anyone with interest in Android phones excited.
First up is the LG K – which seems to be up there with the Nexus 3 in terms of how high-end it will be. It will be packing a 720p HD display and be around 4.5-inches in size. The next one is the LG Prada K2. It’s going to be a dual-core phone and is planned to be a flagship model of the line. Spec info on it has it boasting a 4.3-inch NOVA LCD display, a 8.8mm thin design, a 8MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, 21Mbps HSPA+ speeds, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread as its OS. Its set for a holiday release. After that, the LG Univa is poised to be a sequel to the Optimus One line, with similar specs. Packing a 800MHz processor, 5MP camera, 3.5-inch HVGA display, and Android 2.3. It’s a budget phone like its predecessor – but still have that LG polish to it.
The rest are pretty unremarkable. The LG Fantasy Windows Phone has no specs yet – and is Windows. The more preferred LG Victor is going to have a 1GHz single-core processor and a 3.8-inch OLED display with WVGA resolution. The last two are lower end models: the LG Gelato NFC and LG E2. The Gelato NFC boasts NFC support for easy payment and will have a 3.2-inch HVGA display, a 800MHz processor and a 3MP camera. The LG E2 is supposedly the Optimus One, but stripped down to the basics.
