LG KT770 officially unveiled – Symbian S60 on board

LG KT770, one of the brand new smartphones from LG, has been officially presented by the South Korean company at MWC 2009, alongside handsets like LG Arena KM900 and LG GM730.

While Arena and GM730 are using Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, the KT770 runs on Symbian S60 3rd Edition, being a rarity in LG’s family of products.

It would have been interesting for it to come with the latest Symbian S60 5th Edition platform – just like Nokia N97 or the 8MP Samsung Omnia HD (also known as Acme i8910) – but it looks like LG isn’t ready to offer a full-touch Symbian smartphone yet.

According to the info available at LG’s MWC-dedicated website (which I find far from being user-friendly), LG KT770’s specs and features include:

  • Quad band GSM/EDGE connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • Dual band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity (850/2100 MHz or 900/2100 MHz)
  • 2.8 inch TFT display with 240 x 400 pixels and 256K colors
  • A-GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • Full Internet browser
  • 5MP autofocus camera
  • 1GB / 2GB of internal memory
  • MicroSD card support, up to 16GB
  • 111 x 51.5 x 15.8 mm

Overall, this new slider is quite attractive, and if its price (unknown for the moment) will be decent, it might very well steal a bit from Nokia’s Symbian smartphones’ success.

As for its availability, LG KT770 should be on sale starting the next few months, although an exact release date was not given.
