Leaked LG E906 smartphone might be a designer version of the Optimus 7
Designer handsets are nothing new to LG. After all, the Korean manufacturer added the LG Prada to its portfolio at a time when few phones dared to market themselves as a fashion accessory. Now, it seems like yet another designer device is baking in LG's kitchen, and if this handful of leaked photos is to be believed, it will be complemented by a very distinct Mango flavor.

The handset in the photos bears the LG E906 model name and appears to be very similar to the LG Optimus 7 (also known as the LG E900). However, there are a couple of noticeable differences between the two of them, which we must take into account. First of all, the leaked device is running Windows Phone 7 Mango meaning that it will deliver the most up-to-date experience that the platform has to offer. Besides that, the smartphone has been treated to a stylish outfit by German designer Jil Sander, which is a feature that is going to grab the attention of fashion-conscious consumers. 

Unfortunately, we can only guess whether any tweaks have been done to the insides of the handset. If not, the LG E906 might be nothing more but a polished version of the LG Optimus 7 coming with the Mango update out of the box and with a designer logo slapped on it. Would this be enough to make the LG E906 stand out even though under its hood it packs last year's hardware? Well, we will definitely know for sure one day, as long as the smartphone hits the market.

Is it me or is there anyone that agrees that all WP7 phones look like copies of each other ? Why can't they come up with different designs, then maybe, just maybe i would buy another WP7 (already had the omnia 7) to add it to my collection of phones...

maybe it's because of the the specified hardware requirements also influence manufacturers in terms of design? and i really won't say, that the omnia 7, the venue pro, the hd7 or mozart (these two might be similar, 'cause they're both htc) or even the optimus 7 look similar to eachother. looking at future phones like the nokia 800, the fujitsu or the acer and asus phones, i wouldn't say it about them either. and besides: it's called delight in simplicity.
