PocketNow, usually very spot-on with these kinds of things, has landed a whole slew of LG phone renders that they claim showcase the rest of the company’s 2011 Android lineup. Not only that, but there’s also a fair amount of information given on each one. Just what exactly can we expect out of LG for the remainder of this year? Let’s break it down.
LG Prada K2
As far as specs go, the Prada K2 stands out as a clear leader in the pack. Coming in with a dual-core processor, 4.3-inch NOVA display, an 8MP rear-camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera and 16GB of internal storage, the K2 still manages to maintain a slim 8.8 millimeter thickness. For connectivity, you can expect the K2 to utilize a 21Mbps HSPA+ radio. As a holiday season release is rumored for the K2, the device is expected to land with Android 2.3 on-board.
Compared to the rest of the lineup, the Univa looks to be a slightly improved base-model Optimus 2. Expected to land in the mid to low-range market, the Univa features an 800MHz processor, 3.5-inch display and 5MP camera. Look for the LG Univa to drop in Q4 with Gingerbread as well.
Leading the mid-range market for LG this year will be the LG Victor. Using Android 2.3 powered by a 1GHz single-core processor, the Victor boasts 802.11b/g/n WiFi support for WiFi Direct and DLNA sharing. When you’re not sharing your 5MP pictures via DLNA, you can view them on the Victor’s 3.8-inch OLED display. Expected to drop this quarter, you can also find a now standard front-facing VGA camera for video chat.
LG Gelato NFC
Very similar to the Univa and Optimus Net, the Gelato NFC takes a low-range 800MHz device and simply throws NFC inside. The 3MP camera or 3.2-inch display certainly won’t be the reason anyone would buy this, but once NFC really starts to take off this device will likely fly off shelves.
After learning about the Univa, Gelato NFC and similar carrier exclusives, it’s hard to say where the LG E2 fits in. Theoretically, any variation on what could be an Optimus 2-type device will be dirt cheap, if not free, on contract. The E2 should be cheaper. Not many hard specs are known on the E2, but a small display, under-powered processor and 3MP or less camera leave this device on the low, low-end. Perhaps it’s meant to be some sort of ultra affordable prepaid device? We should know more on this one soon.
Last but not least in this Friday LG mega-leak, is the mysterious LG K. No render of the K has been outed yet, but a 4.5-inch, true 720p, Retina smashing display is at the top of the list of rumored specs.
Keep in mind none of these specs are final, but they do provide a lot of insight into what we can expect from LG for the rest of the year. So, what do you say? Anything look enticing? Does the promise of a display rocking 1,000 Nits of brightness get you going? Or perhaps you’re waiting for something with a little more pixel density? Let us know in the comments below.
