LG Prada 3

Remember that LG Prada K2, also known as the LG Prada 3, that was announced back in November? Well, the device has just been through its first benchmark tests over at Antutu, and the results reveal a few juicy details about its internals that weren't previously disclosed.

The tests confirm that the device is indeed running the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. LG's announcement did state that Gingerbread would power the device, but confirmation of this will be a disappointment to those who were hoping to see it updated to Ice Cream Sandwich prior to its launch.

What we didn't already know is that the Prada K2 will feature a 1GHz processor. That's by no means the fastest chip we've seen in Android devices in recent months, so don't expect it to compete with the latest flagship smartphones, but the Prada K2 does attempt to make up for the slightly slower processor elsewhere.

According to recent reports, the device will feature both a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera for snapping quality photographs; which you'll be able to enjoy on its 4.3-inch display. Furthermore, all of that will fit into a svelte 9mm shell.

So when will the Prada K2 be available? Well, LG and Prada have an event scheduled for next week, so it's likely the device will get its unveiling then. There's also talk of a Prada-labeled tablet, according to TechRadar, so we could be in for a treat.

Will you be looking forward to the LG Prada K2?
