LG announced today the company's plans to launch the LG-KC910, in October; an 8 megapixel multimedia phone with a full 3.0 inch touchscreen interface.
The LG-KC910 is the successor to the multi-million
selling camera phone, LG Viewty. Like its predecessor, which
debuted as the slimmest 5 megapixel phone, the LG-KC910 will be
the slimmest 8 megapixel handset on the market at just 13.95 mm
when released. This phone combines the latest multimedia features
and an intuitive user interface evolved far beyond what Viewty
The LG-KC910's 8 megapixel camera includes Schneider-Kreuznach certified optics, a xenon flash and ISO sensitivity up to 1600. Further strengthening the phone's camera features are image
stabilization, auto-focus, manual focus, Face Tracking, Smile
Shot and blink detection. An embedded GPS receiver gives the
LG-KC910 the ability to geo-tag photos for later plotting on an
interactive map. A variety of shot modes, so far only
found on standalone digital cameras, will be included.
The LG-KC910 is also the first handset for the global market to include Dolby Mobile, an integrated suite of audio processing technologies which offers depth and richness as well as powerful bass.
The LG-KC910 can record video from 5fps up to 120fps, which allows it to record in both fast and slow motion. The phone also plays DivX and Xvid movies straight out of the box, without the need for additional encoding.
A 3.0-inch WQVGA full touch LCD screen allows for
interacting with the LG-KC910?s multimedia
features. A customizable interface, with numerous widgets and
shortcuts, makes the phone's features even easier to use.
Rounding out the phone?s feature set, are A-GPS
enabled navigation, compatibility with the latest 3G HSDPA
networks for connections up to 7.2Mbps and Wi-Fi for even faster
internet access. The phone also includes a Jogging Buddy program
that uses GPS technology to help track workouts.
The KC910 will be available for purchase beginning in October.
