LG, gearing up for the important preholiday season, has a number of Android-powered smartphones on the horizon.

One model in particular, the Univa, has appeared in a pair of real-world outings recently. Carrying a model number of e150 and looking production-ready, the handset may ultimately arrive Stateside as an Optimus One successor.

Rumored specifications for the Univa include an 800MHz processor, 512MB RAM, a 3.5-inch HVGA display, and a 5-megapixel camera. It is expected that the handset will run Android 2.3.4 and offer support for Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth.

While these details might sound uninspiring to seasoned Android users, they're a step up from last year's Optimus series. The Univa should also carry a low price point of $50 or less.
