Although LG said its Prada 3.0 Android smartphone would be out starting next year, the handset will actually be released tomorrow, December 28 – but only in South Korea (the rest of the world still has to wait for 2012 to get it).
Apparently, SK Telecom will be the first to offer the Prada 3.0 to Korean customers, followed by KT. The smartphone costs 899,800 KRW (about $776), but it will also be available subsidized on various contracts.
The Prada 3.0 features a 4.3 inch IPS WVGA display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and 8GB of internal memory.
For the moment, the LG Prada 3.0 runs Android Gingerbread. It will be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich starting the second quarter of 2012 (alongside other LG smartphones, like the Optimus LTE, Optimus 2X, and Optimus Sol).
