LG and Prada has officially announced their 3rd installment of the LG Prada. The new device looks pretty sleek and probably is one of the better looking LG smart phones to date. On the exterior the LG Prada went with a minimalist look with slender 8.5mm profile and rounded edges towards the sides which looks pretty familiar, if you know what we mean.
Powering the device is a dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor, that’s similar to the Optimus 3D but it now comes with 1GB of RAM. On the front, it has a 4.3″ TFT NOVA display that does 800×480 resolution. The LG Prada’s NOVA display pushes a 800-nits brightness, which is 100 more than the LG Optimus Black. This should provide better outdoor visibility during sunny days.
At the back, it has a 8MP camera capable of shooting 1080p and comes covered with a unique Prada texture which gives it an upmarket feel. Over at the front, there’s a 1.3MP camera. The LG Prada uses a lot of circular elements. At the bottom, it comes with dual speakers where the vents are round at both corners. The same round design is apparent at the top with its headphone jack, usb cover slider tab & iluminated power button in similar design.
The Prada look and feel is not just limited to the exterior as the smart phone has been customed skined with monochrome UI. Just like the Galaxy Nexus it also comes with NFC which can be used to share contacts or links by a simple beam. Internally it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and no firm mentions of Ice Cream Sandwich update so far.
Pricing hasn’t be revealed yet but expect a premium for this fashion smartphone. However we do believe it should be cheaper than the P’9981 Porsche design BlackBerry.
