Sprint has just went official with two new LG phones: the LG Lotus Elite (aka LG Lotus 2) and the LG Rumor Touch. Both handsets are part of a new “Style” campaign launched by Sprint and LG in the US.

The first phone, LG Lotus Elite, is a square-ish clamshell with two 2.4 inch QVGA displays (one external, touch-enabled), 3G, a “a highly-customizable user interface”, full QWERTY keypad, GPS (with Sprint Navigation), shortcut keys for social networking, email and text, Bluetooth, Sprint Music Store, background music mode, Sprint TV, personal and corporate email, Wireless Backup, 2MP camera, and MicroSD card support.

The Lotus Elite will come in two color versions (red, starting January 10; and black, starting February 14) featuring an “amazing tattoo pattern”.

Sprint will sell the LG Lotus Elite soon, for $99.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement and after a $50 rebate.

The second new handset, LG Rumor Touch, takes the Rumor line-up to the next level by adding – you guessed it – a touchscreen display (3 inch, 240 x 400 pixels).

The Rumor Touch also features a 5-row QWERTY keyboard, 3G, 3.5mm headset jack, GPS, and a 2MP camera.

Sprint didn’t say how much the LG Rumor Touch costs, but the phone should be on sale starting this spring.
