The first non-CGI picture of LG’s second Prada handset has appeared online, sparking fresh rumours that the Korean company is poised to relaunch the fashion phone.

Although the image is blurry, it mirrors the design that was bounced around online back in April, when talk of a Prada II was first heard.

The latest image appeared in a report by BGR, which named the image’s source only as “Daddy G”. The only real difference between this latest image and the Photoshop mock-up that we can see is that the curved edges around the virtual version’s keyboard are, well, rather curvier than the ones on Daddy G’s image.

Unfortunately, the parental Prada picture purveyor hasn’t given birth to any specifications for the second incarnation of the fashion fanatic’s handset.

However, previously mooted speculative specs suggest that the new model will be quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge capable, work on two UMTS 3G bands, and support 7.2Mb/s HSDPA downloads.

Previous reports have also claimed the Prada II has been given a five-megapixel camera and a user-facing snapper for video calls. Pictures are stored on Micro SD cards, but Bluetooth 2.0 is also on-board for moving data around. The phone’s even rumoured to support Wi-Fi.

Back in April, numerous online sources stated that a formal LG Prada II announcement is due in Q4.
