The similarities are undeniable. The LG KE850, also known as the “Prada phone” in some circles, received a Product Design Award for 2007 by International Forum Design, but don’t you think it’s a little too much like the Apple iPhone? Both phones eschew any sort of physical keypad, opting completely for a full touchscreen display on the front. The LG offering is a touch on the smaller side, however, as its screen is only three inches, compared to the 3.5-inches found on the iPhone.
It’s slick, it’s slim, and it’s got some sort of camera on the back, megapixel count notwithstanding. Just like the hugely popular Chocolate Phone before it, the KE850 “Prada” phone is quite svelte in appearance, making use of “highly glossy black and metal texture deco” to create “a sense of luxury.” And as an added bonus, it will come with a free leather case. The rest of the specs — like whether it’s got an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor too — remains to be seen. But I’m reasonably confident that it’ll do MP3s and videos.
