LG’s Prada-branded K2 has been on our radar since this past summer, expected to arrive before the conclusion of 2011. We’ve seen it a few times since, the most recent of which was just last week, when a couple new pics of the smartphone surfaced. We still don’t have any confirmed launch details, but it certainly looks like we’re close to getting there, with the arrival of the Prada K2′s documentation at the FCC.
It’s clear from the FCC publication that the K2 – LG model P940 – won’t be released in the US, but that’s hardly surprising. We can see in those documents that the phone supports HSPA+ on the 1900MHz band, so you should have success using it on AT&T in the States, depending on where you live, but without 850MHz, we won’t see the carrier release it. That’s a shame, because its 21Mbps HSPA+ radio would be able to pull down some nice speeds.
When the K2 finally launches, look for it to have a 4.3-inch NOVA display (extra bright), eight-megapixel main camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facer, and arrive running Gingerbread.
