LG Optimus Elite rumored to be Sprint’s next budget handset, may also be headed to Virgin Mobile

Sprint’s latest rumor features something not too exciting, in fact, we’d say that we’ve already seen a phone just like this before. Known as the Optimus Elite, this LG-made phone features many specs that the Optimus S, which has already been on Sprint for some time. The star of the show is a 3.2-inch 480×320 display, a 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM and a 5MP camera. It gets a little interesting with the inclusion of NFC, something we don’t normally see on more low-end handsets. Perhaps this phone will feature Google Wallet support?

Like many of Sprint’s low to mid-range handsets, this LG handset may also be headed to Virgin Mobile, Sprint’s prepaid alternative. All of this should be happening before the end of May, starting with Sprint’s handset followed by the Virgin Mobile variant. Who’s excited for another low-end LG handset? Should Sprint and LG even bother? Let us know in the comments!
