We’ve had what feels like a lengthy relationship with the LG e906 Jil Sander phone, getting a couple early looks at the handset on-camera, and revealing the first collection of specs on the phone, further confirming its Optimus 7 roots. This whole time, we’ve been without much of an inkling for when the phone might be released. Recent discoveries started us thinking that it would be quite soon, and it turns out we were right; the Jil Sander e906 will debut tomorrow, October 7.
Since it’s based off first-wave Windows Phone hardware, the Jil Sander phone may not be quite as spry as the latest handsets arriving, but it really shouldn’t feel that much behind-the-times, arriving with Mango installed. There’s no surprise in these posted specs, matching all our expectations and leaked info so far; the phone will have a 1GHz processor, 3.8-inch WVGA display, five-megapixel camera, and 16GB of internal storage. Like the HTC Titan we just looked at, the Jil Sander phone has a hard-wired eMMC flash instead of a microSD card for storage.
The Jil Sander phone comes with matching headphones and a carrying pouch. Look for it to start showing up in Germany, Austria, Italy, France, and the UK.
