LG appears to have its game face on in 2008, at least as far as fashion phones are concerned. We’ve already reported on several sweet-looking LG handsets making their way to US carrier hands and it looks like the cycle continues. Phone Arena scooped a PRADA-like handset that just made its way though the FCC approval process and has been given the all-clear for release in the US. Beyond the big bright touchscreen seen in the image above, here are the reported specs:

  • 3.2 megapixel camera with flash and Schneider Kreuznach lens
  • 2.1 Stereo bluetooth
  • microSDHC support
  • microUSB port
  • EVDO support

A PA reader added that the device may have been scheduled for a late-March release but delays could push it back to April or May. In any event, an arrival sooner rather than later is a safe bet as its estranged brother the Vu should be coming to AT&T this half as well. The VX9700 has the potential to go far in appeasing Verizon Wireless customers who want a nice touch experience but would rather forgo the bulk of the Voyager.
