LG announced today the launch<
The LG-KC780 is a slim slider phone at just 13.9 mm thick, but manages to include a large 2.4-inch widescreen LCD. The phone comes equipped with a Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens.
The LG-KC780 includes smart technologies such as Face Detection, which automatically finds and focuses on people's faces. Part of this feature relies on LG's Smile Detection technology, which can recognize the angle of people?s mouths and adjust focus for faces.
Other people-focused features on the LG-KC780 include easy-to-use shot modes. With Smile Shot enabled the camera automatically triggers the shutter when it determines that the subject is smiling. And with Beauty Mode users can remove spots and imperfections on people?s faces.
The LG-KC780 can almost see in the dark with adjustable light sensitivity up to a high ISO 1600. If an image is too bright, however, LG's SmartLight setting automatically fixes it. A built-in Image Stabilizer ensures that pictures come out clear.
For those times when a picture is not enough, the LG-KC780's D1 Video recording captures DVD-resolution video of every moment.
The LG-KC780 is a full featured handset and includes the latest in mobile phone technology, including Smart Bluetooth, which opens up a number of new options when the phone is connected to a personal computer. For example, the phone's camera can be used as a webcam for use in online conversations. Unlike USB webcams, this feature means that the camera can easily move with the user, as long as the phone stays within Bluetooth range.
Transferring the 8 megapixel photos that the phone takes is also far simpler thanks to Bluetooth. In addition, Smart Bluetooth makes it easier to send and read text messages, allowing them to be typed and viewed on the computer. The LG-KC780?s fun goes beyond its picture-taking capabilities; Motion Sensor Games make it easy to get into the action.
LG-KC780 will go on sale in November 2008, in Europe, later expanding to CIS and Asia, including India, Thailand, Hong Kong and China.
