LG Viewty Smart GC900 officially outed

It looks like LG found a new routine  to wet our appetite for their upcoming high end handsets.

It started with LG KM900 Arena:

First comes the leak through some dealer outlet, then we get a posting on one of the official LG Country blogs, official pre-announcement and then the official launch.

It worked quite well with LG Arena, and they are doing this again with LG Viewty II GC900 phone, which, from today will be known as LG Viewty Smart GC900.

It has been semi-oficially revealed  on an official LG Germany blog (Update: looks like it was an accident. The pictures were removed in a few hrs.)

Already known LG Viewty Smart GC900 specs include:

  • Quadband GSM, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, 1.4 Mbps HSUPA connectivity
  • 3” full WVGA (800 x 480 px) touchscreen display
  • S class 3D interface
  • 8 megapixel camera with Xenon Flash, manual and auto focus, image stabilizer, face tracking, burst mode , high speed video recording, ISO1600 and geo tagging
  • DivX and XVID playback
  • microSDHC support, up to 32GB
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • A-GPS
  • Accelerometer

Today’s announcement adds that LG Viewty Smart is only 12.4 mm thick and records videos at 720×480 px resolution.

It confirms that this handset  is headed for Orange mobile network and shows LG Viewty II Smart back without Xenon flash that should be there (probably a mistake):

And shows us a pretty interesting camera interface:

That’s about it for now. But with this semi-official outing today, the official LG Viewty Smart GC900 announcement/ launch should not be more then a couple of weeks away.

Stay tuned.

    There is NO xenon flash :)

    Good catch eomer :).

    Now I wonder, if they forgot to add it in photoshop of the press pic, or has it been removed from the final model?

    Looks to me like they forgot, since the pic does not seem to have ANY flash, which would be stupid for this kind of phone.

    Also official specs at dealer event in Netherlands had it and live pics from MWC had it as well. And now German LG blog post have been removed, so it was probably a mistake.

    But we'll know one way or another in a few days.

    720×480 video sounds pretty good, but what's the bitrate?

  • http://www.staska.net Staska

    Well, we'll have to wait a few days or weeks to know that

    Hi eomer,

    Good catch on no Xenon flash on LG Viewty II :). Looks more like a mistake
    in the photoshop image to me.

    BTW, are you by chance the same person who posts under “eomer” nick in
    mobile-review.com forums?

    good post……………

    Hi again Staska :)

    No I'm not that man from the mobile-review.com forums :)
    Now on the flash topic – on this pic: http://www.unwiredview.com/wp-content/uploads/2… we can clearly see that the Viewty Smart has a single LED flash just right to the camera. I wonder if it's Power LED as in W995 (a.k.a. Hikaru) or not.

    Anyway the more important thing is that this phone was one of the mysterious devices under a glass in the MWC 2009 in Barcelona and even then it featured a LED flash. So I'm pretty sure that it has a flash and it's a LED one.

    Here are some live photos on the gsmarena web site if you need a proof from the MWC :) : http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_mwc_09-review-319p4.php

    I wish I am terribly wrong, but I'm not :) That's why I'll buy the Arena tomorrow.
