Specs, photo of LG VX9700
New information has allegedly been revealed on the VX9700, an LG phone approved by the FCC and headed to Verizon Wireless. Among these are hardware features such as a 3.2-megapixel camera, using a Schneider Kreuznach lens; storage is said to be expandable with microSDHC cards, while sync can be conducted through a micro-USB port. Text can supposedly be entered in several ways, including T9 entry, multi-tap, or an on-screen QWERTY keyboard.
A photo supplied by an anonymous source appears to confirm that the phone is related to the Prada, being designed around a touchscreen with no sign of a dedicated keyboard or numberpad. It is still unknown, however, if it has any connection to the LG Vu. The VX9700 is alleged to be shipping by the end of March, but could be delayed as far as April or May. [via Phone Arena]
