2011 LG Smartphone Roadmap Leaks, Reveals Seven New Handsets
It’s not often that you see the entire roadmap for a smartphone manufacturer leak out and that’s what makes the fact that we now know LG’s entire 2011 smartphone lineup so exciting. Pocketnow was able to scoop the remaining seven smartphones in LG’s lineup for this year and there are a couple of phones on the list that we think you’re going to like a lot. Let’s start with the cream of the crop shall we? The LG K looks to be the most intriguing smartphone among the bunch and it’s another phone to add to the Nexus 3 watch list.
It’s expected to be one of the first phones to employ a 720p HD display and the report suggests that it’s going to be around 4.5-inches in size. The pixel density is expected to exceed or match that of the Retina Display on the iPhone 4. Next up, the LG Prada K2 which is going to be a dual-core flagship smartphone and will have a 4.3-inch NOVA LCD display, 8.8mm thin design, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, 21Mbps HSPA+ speeds, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and a holiday release.
The LG Univa is apparently the successor to the Optimus One line and will likely be the Optimus Two. It’s going to have a 800MHz processor, 5MP camera, 3.5-inch HVGA display, Android Gingerbread, and DLNA support. It’s also likely going to be extremely cheap like its predecessor which will make it very, very attractive. It supposedly has a fourth quarter release date as well.
The remaining three include the LG Fantasy Windows Phone which currently has no known specs, the mid-range LG Victor which will have a 1GHz single-core processor and a 3.8-inch OLED display with WVGA resolution, and two lower end models called the LG Gelato NFC and LG E2. The Gelato NFC will obviously have NFC support and will also bring a 3.2-inch HVGA display, 800MHz processor and a 3MP camera. As for the LG E2, it’s likely going to be a cheaper, more stripped down version of the Optimus One.
All in all, LG’s lineup looks really solid and it’s getting us really excited about all the possibilities for this holiday season, especially with Android Ice Cream Sandwich on the way.
