LG's Optimus line of Android smartphones continues to be a major part of the company's mobile strategy, and Pocketnow has just received images of the latest entry: the Optimus Elite for Sprint and Virgin Mobile. Despite the name, these phones fall strictly in the entry-level market — specs include a 3.2-inch HVGA screen, 800Mhz processor, 5-megapixel camera, and 2GB of internal storage. Of course, these phones will be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and we wouldn't hold our breathes for an Ice Cream Sandwich update. In fact, specs appear to be identical to the already-released LG Optimus Net, though the body styling looks significantly different. With these specs on board, these phones will likely be quite affordable — though Sprint already offers the far superior Samsung Nexus S for free on a two-year contract, so we're not sure exactly who LG is targeting with this phone.
