Sprint LG Lotus 2 coming in January, will rock a touchscreen face?

LG Lotus 2

Be honest: the first time you saw the somewhat-short, somewhat-stout LG Lotus, did you think it would be successful enough to get a sequel? Looks like it was.

One of our sources just spilled the beans on what we’re tentatively calling the “Lotus 2”, for lack of a better name. It’s sounding a whole lot like the original so far, with just a few little tweaks thrown in for good measure.

Here’s what we’re hearing:

  • Very similar form factor to the original – same square shape, same QWERTY keyboard
  • This model will support 32GB microSD cards, whereas the original Lotus only supported up to 12GB.
  • Tentative launch date is currently set for some time in January.
  • The screen on the outer face will still be there – but this time around, it’ll be a touchscreen. We’re not sure how much functionality they’ll be able to squeeze into a touchscreen of that size (even if they bump the screen size up to fill most of the face), so we’re guessing it’s more for novelty than anything.

So, any Sprint folk out there wanna sneak us a picture? Shoot us a note at tips@mobilecrunch.com
