The British smartphone market is about to get a new handset to fight for customers’ attention: LG Prada 3.0. The new LG smartphone in the Prada lineup has been expected to have an international rollout starting with January. The Britons will be able to get the LG Prada 3.0 from third party retailers by February.
The first carrier on this market able to offer the new LG smartphone to its subscribers will be T-Mobile. The operator’s official page suggest that the release date will be sometime in February. One UK online store suggests a price of £429.99 (about $665 US).
LG Prada 3.0, announced at the end of last year, on December 28th, hit the shelves on the domestic market in South Korea. The first smartphone in the LG Prada Phone series 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.
On the first market where it became available the Prada 3.0 was delivered to SK Telecom subscribers for a subsidized price. Otherwise, customers who wanted to get a version free from carrier’s limitation had to pay the full price, 899,800 KRW (about $776). At the release, the LG Prada 3.0 is powered by Android Gingerbread, but users have been informed that the phone will get an update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich soon.
