Today LG announced their latest touch-based all-in-one phone - the LG KC910. Coming as a successor of the widely popular LG KU990 Viewty, the KC910 is a real multimedia powerhouse, packing a whole load of extras.
Equipped with an 8 megapixel auto focus camera the LG KC910 is the first feature phone of the company to sport Wi-Fi connectivity. In addition it extends the functionality of the Viewty with GPS, which allows geo-tagging of the photos.
The camera of theKC910 uses Schneider-Kreuznach optics and has a protective cover. The sweet VGA videos at 30 fps and slow motion 120 fps QVGA videos are also there. A xenon flash is also on board to facilitate photography in low-light conditions. The display of the new LG will be a 3" 262K color one with a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels.
Connectivity is also duly covered in the LG KC910, which has support for all the four GSM bands. 3G with HSDPA is also available and so are Bluetooth and USB. The final extras of the KC910 include microSD card slot, TV-out support, Xvid and DivX video playback and Dolby sound for the music.
All in all, the LG KC910 is rather similar to the other recently announced 8 megapixel phones as far as the specs sheets are concerned. The Samsung i8510 INNOV8 and the Sony Ericsson C905 are on par with the KC910, except for the lack of touchscreen functionality and the fact that the Samsung packs Symbian OS. Also, LG KC910 is only 14mm thick as opposed to 17.2mm of the INNOV8 and 19.5mm of the C905.
LG KC910 is expected to hit the shelves as early as October this year. Unfortunately, there is no information regarding its pricing yet.
