Three of LG’s 2011 Android Phones Spotted – Prada K2, Victor and Gelato

If you had doubt that LG had more Android phones coming our way this year, stow them. Three more have popped up in a massive leak from our friends at PocketNow.

The first is the LG Prada K2, a phone with a name that insinuates it’ll be aimed at the crowd who prefer to be more fashionable than functional. Fortunately, you get both in this package. It’s said to have a dual-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera on the front, a 1.3 megapixel camera on the back, a 4.3 inch NOVA display (which looks to be qHD resolution judging by the screen’s physical size on the render) and Android 2.3. A Prada-inspired back will give you that premium feel you might expect from a device with this name. It’s said to be here this Holiday season.

Next up, the LG Victor. This one’s a bit more modest with its 3.8 inch display and 1GHz single-core processor, but it’s still quite decent. I hate to say that this one belongs in the mid-range tier of devices, but high-end seems to be 4.0+ inches and at least a dual-core processor. We won’t take anything away from it, though. Remaining specs are a 5 megapixel camera with a VGA front camera and Android 2.3.

Finally, there’s the Gelato, a phone we’ve been hearing a lot about. This one turned out to be the same LG Optimus Net that LG has already officially announced, but this variant will come with an NFC chip inside. Although NFC is looked at as being reserved for mid-range to high-end devices, the rest of the specs inside fall short of passing that low-end line. It has a 3.2 inch display, a 3 megapixel camera and an 800 MHz processor.

There was another device that sounded like it could be an Android handset, the LG Optimus K, but could not get a render for it. [PocketNow]

    That’s a bit disappointing. We all know what Gelato means in Italian (and other languages), right?! Oh well!

          First its cannoli, second its mascarpone cheese and hardly anyone uses it anymore, ricotta is used these days, unless you go to the old country.

    First one could also be a 720p HD display. It’s same 16:9 ratio.

    • HalfwayCrook

      too much bezel on top & bottom

        Yes, it has a 4.3 screen. So, he is taking much space. Hoping that the definitive version will have bezels cut.

    And last but not least, the NOVA screen will be improved (among new specs, there is a promise of 1000 NITS of brightness !).
