LG has shown off the U990 - a high-end handset that it hopes will emulate the success of the recent flashy phones from the company.

The U990 will boast a 5-megapixel camera and is 3G-enabled, with HSDPA high-speed download technology, soon to be available on the 3 network in the UK.

With definite design cues from the Prada and the Shine, this is going to be launching on 3 in October but no pricing has yet been revealed.

The screen is a touch-sensitive 3-inch display, with a 240 x 400 resolution, and is capable of displaying 262,144 colours.

Unusually, the U990 camera has a manually controlled digital zoom that is adjusted via a dial around the lens itself.

This dial will apparently double-up as a form of jog-dial, allowing users to scroll through the camera's other functions too.

The U990 will come equipped with 170MB of memory for those big 5MP pics, and there's also a Micro SD card slot to provide users with some additional storage capacity.

We'll bring you more info soon...

ee.co.uk - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
