LG breaks 8 megapixel cameraphone barrier with LG KC910 (Viewty 2)
Samsung and SE, step aside. We know you’ve both got great 8MP cameraphones up and coming for us eager consumers, but your devices lose hands down to the newly announced LG KC910. At least as far as overall slimness is concerned. We first reported about this phone several weeks ago, and it looks to be LG’s follow-up to the original Viewty.
The LG KC910 is the newest 8 megapixel cameraphone on the block, and it only measures 14mm thin. Being an LG, you can expect this device to come with its own custom OS that’s unlike Symbian, Windows Mobile, or any other smartphone’s in the market, but that shouldn’t mean it’s no good in the computing department.
And anyway, the LG KC910 seems more inclined towards multimedia creation and consumption than productivity, since it not only comes with an 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash and Schneider-Kreuznach optics, but also Dolby sound in its speakers and a gorgeous 3-inch WQVGA 240 x 400 display.
When it comes to telephony, the LG KC910 should work mostly anywhere in the world since it’s a Quadband GSM phone and capable of running on UMTS/HSDPA networks up to 7.2Mbps.
The LG KC910’s other features include built-in GPS, Wi-Fi, TV-out, Bluetooth, and support for up to 8GB of memory via a microSD card slot.
No clear word yet on pricing, but expect to be in the same league as those other 8MP cameraphones when it comes out in October.
