Fashionistas, take note: LG will be releasing a third-generation Prada-branded smartphone early in 2012.

Expect a minimalist black handset and a monochrome interface if the previous Prada phones are anything to go by.

LG says the Prada 3.0's predecessors sported "avant garde" technology, but in reality they were behind-the-curve handsets given an visual makeover and stamped with a premium brand.

Will the new model do better? Alas, neither LG nor Prada are giving anything away as to the new phone's specs. ®
