LG and Prada’s latest smartphone effort, the Prada Phone by LG 3.0 – or just Prada 3.0 for short – will go on sale on Phones 4U tomorrow, the retailer has confirmed.
A pre-order page has been set up for the hotly awaited threequel, with contract options starting at £31 on a two-year term for those looking to snap it up gratis.
On Vodafone, that entitles takers to 900 minutes talk time, 3000 texts and 500MB of data allowances per month, along with Voda’s ‘Data Test Drive’ offer, which comes with all-you-can-eat data for the first three months.
Pick O2, though, and you’ll get a slightly less appetising 600 minutes and 3000 texts. However, you’ll need to pay additional for a data bolt-on, which starts at £6 for 500MB.
Customers can also choose a 12-month tariff with Vodafone for £36. However, that comes with a £139.00 one-off payment for the handset and half the minutes as the two-year deal.
Features of the Prada 3.0 include a 4.3-inch NOVA IPS display, a 1GHz dual core processor, an eight-megapixel camera and 8GB of on board storage – all rolled into a slick candy bar shell designed in collaboration with creative types at the fashion house.
Also on board is HSPA+ support for download speeds of up to 21Mbps, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi and a front-facing camera for making video calls. But perhaps the highlight is a redesigned bespoke UI that goes for a monochrome colour palette that suitably compliments the handset’s black exterior.
Although the phone runs the slightly ageing Gingerbread iteration of Android out of the box, LG has promised that an update to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich will be released after launch.
