Early this month, it was speculated that LG and Prada were set to release a handset on the 14th of December, with the two brands, reportedly even scheduling an event in London. This information has been confirmed as tech website Engadget received a JPEG which invites them to the unveiling of the Prada Phone by LG 3.0 on Wednesday. The upcoming handset will be the third handset from the LG’s collaboration with Prada. The first handset was released before the first generation Apple iPhone. LG and Prada recently announced that they have renewed their partnership and would set to launch a handset by 2012.

It appears that the date may have been pushed up a bit and the handset has made several appearances online through leaks before it’s unveiling. Below is a quick glance at what specifications the Prada Phone by LG 3.0 may have:

  • Android Gingerbread
  • A dual-core processor
  • Less than 9mm thin
  • 8 Megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recoding
  • 1.3 Megapixel front facing camera
  • 4.3-inch NOVA display
  • 16GB internal memory
  • HSDPA+ radio

This handset would most likely be priced quite heavily and there is no word on what areas this upcoming luxury smartphone will be available in. With Wednesday not too many days away, more details will be known.
