Word on the street is that the LG Dare VX9700 will be released as early as June 26th in various online stores and in local stores on July 3rd of this year. The Dare will be LG and Verizon’s latest touchscreen smartphone that offers a lot of functionality in a very sleek looking body.

Pictured here are spy shots of the LG Dare VX9700′s screen, showing the UI with the menu and a glimpse of the SMS messaging app, where we find that LG provides a multi-tap keypad instead of a QWERTY keyboard.

Highlights of the LG Dare VX9700 include a large touchscreen display, 3.2 megapixel camera AF camera with built-in flash, 3.5mm headphone jack, full HTML browser and high-speed 3G network support.

The LG Dare also has a built-in ambient light sensor that measures surrounding light to adjust the brightness of the phone accordingly, as well as a proximity sensor that turns off the display entirely when you place the handset close enough to your face.

It records video with in VGA resolution, features handwriting recognition, EVDO Rev A, microUSB connectivity, microSDHC card support, and has a builty-in accelerometer. This is as close to an iPhone clone as LG can get. There is no info regarding the price on this handset yet, but this will surely be one of the phones people will be watching out for the most this quarter.

    The dare is a great phone. Ive had it 3 days after it came out and havent put it down yet. I love the all touchscreen feature and the camera is a great add. I use to never take pictures with my camera phone till I got this phone. Pictures turn out great and the features the camera has are amazing. The multi-tasking music player is also a great add…coming from the voyager I love this feature alot. Texting I had to kind of get use to it but Im pretty good at it now. It does give me some glitches here and there though like restarting on me twice since I got it but that considerably lower than what my voyager did resetting every other day. I also found out alot of cool and neat tricks for the dare and how to fix some problems by visiting http://www.lg-dare.com/ They have alot of tricks and general information about the dare that really helped me decided to get this phone and easing the use of it. Overall this phone is very good 8.5/10 from me.
