The recently announced LG Optimus Elite appeals to those looking for an affordable, entry-level, and environmentally-friendly Android smartphone. On Earth Day, which is April 22, the Optimus Elite will officially launch for $29.99 on a two year contract following a $50 MIR. In case you prefer to buy the Optimus Elite without a contract, then you may want to wait until it launches on Virgin Mobile shortly after it launches on Sprint.
In terms of specs and features, the Optimus Elite is mainly an upgrade over the Optimus S. With this in mind, the Optimus Elite sports a 800MHz processor, 3.5 inch touch screen display, 5MP rear facing camera, Android 2.3, WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth. In addition, it features NFC capability, which allows Google Wallet to be enabled on the Elite.
Again, the LG Optimus Elite will launch on April 22 for $29.99 on a two year contract. This entry-level smartphone will do its part to help save the environment by being manufactured in an efficient manner.
