Next Prada phone to pack 5-megapixel camera?

LG KU990 Leak

LG's next version of the Prada phone may also be one of the company's most powerful handsets to date, based on text embedded in an XML file as well as through separate photos. The touchscreen KU990 will reportedly be much stronger in terms of video capture with a 5-megapixel camera instead of the earlier 2-megapixel sensor, and will gain a flash to assist in dark shots; the device will have the power to capture macro still images and even record QVGA (320x240) videos at a 4X speed of 120 frames per second, which may help capture slow-motion footage.

The Korean firm will also no longer limit the device's Internet access to the mid-speed, Europe-only UMTS; an HSDPA modem will help in uploading videos through its YouTube feature, participating in video chats with a front-facing camera, and browsing the web. The three-inch screen and microSD card slot will hold over from the original Prada but will be supplemented by an FM radio.

A release window for the KU990 as well as the possibility of christening the phone as a Prada device still remain uncertain, though the leak reveals Vodafone as a carrier and indicates that the handset is probable for a European release later in the year. [via ClipSet]
