These press pics of two new phones for Sprint and Virgin Mobile have just surfaced. Apparently, the budget-conscious market is still going strong, and now has a new NFC-equipped entry called the LG Optimus Elite. It looks like a decent device, but the specs don't really live up to the name, except maybe for the NFC capabilities. Here's what we know about the phone:
  • NFC
  • 800Mhz processors
  • 3.2-inch HVGA displays
  • Five-megapixel camera with flash

The phone will launch pretty soon on Sprint, and likely in May for Virgin Mobile. We don't know anything more, other than that the phones will likely be less than $100 bucks. We will keep you apprised as we find out more.
