The PRADA Phone by LG 3.0 will hit UK shelves tomorrow, Friday January 27, retailer Phones 4U has confirmed, with the designer-branded Android smartphone priced from free with a new agreement. Packing a 4.3-inch LG NOVA IPS display – albeit running only at WVGA resolution – along with an 8-megapixel camera and NFC, the PRADA Phone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread right now but has an ICS upgrade in the works.
Insider there’s a 1GHz dual-core processor paired with 8GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 3.0+HS and WiFi b/g/n, together with HSPA+ supporting up to 21Mbps downloads, network-depending. You also get 1GB of RAM and a front-facing camera for video calls, together with a reskinned UI that ditches Android’s usual colors for a monochrome, PRADA-themed icon set.
The PRADA Phone by LG 3.0 will go on sale free with a new, two-year agreement priced at £31 ($49) per month or above, on a choice of networks. We’re expecting unlocked availability from the beginning of February.
