LG Optimus Elite leaks with Sprint, Virgin Mobilebranding

LG Optimus Elite leaks with Sprint, Virgin Mobilebranding

A set of newly-leaked images have landed online today, giving us a clear look at a handset headed for Sprint and Virgin Mobile.  Called the LG Optimus Elite, the specifications include an 800MHz processor, 3.2-inch HVGA display, 5-megapixel camera with flash, and NFC support.  Yeah, maybe these phones will be Elite in name only, but so what?  If NFC is to see mass adoption then we need to put up with “low-end” stuff like this every once in a while.

Expect to see Sprint’s version announced relatively soon, followed by Virgin Mobile in May.  According to Pocketnow, the no-contract carrier shouldn’t be asking much more than $100 for this one.

    I hope they add more internal storage for these things than they put in the Optimus V –  constantly getting the “Low on Space” message is fustrating. It is one of the only huge complaints with several of the “low-end” LG phones. Just 1GB would be plenty, and with the price and size of those chips, I don’t know why they continue to fail on the internal storage.
