LG Viewty 8MP phone gets official announcement

LG have announced the new LG-KC910, an update to the successful LG Viewty that features an 8 megapixel camera. It's not the first 8 megapixel camera to be announced, but the new LG comes with some stunning specs that in many ways blows the competition out of the water.
More details of the LG-KC910 after the jump.

LG-KC910 overview
As you can see, the LG-KC910 (or LG Viewty II, as somepeople are calling it) is a touchscreen candybar phone featuring a user interface not dissimilar to that of the latest smartphones. Having a big analogue clock in the middle of a touchscreen seems de rigeur, these days, and the LG-KC910 is no different. Keeping up with the Samsungs, you could say!
More impressive, though, is the list of features. Just check this lot out:
  • 8 megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach certified optics
  • Auto-focus and manual focus
  • Xenon Flash
  • Adjustable ISO sensitivity up to 1600
  • Image Stabilization
  • Face tracking
  • Smile detection
  • Blink detection (yes, seriously!)
  • aGPS
  • Dolby Mobile
  • DivX and Xvid movie playback
  • 3" WQVGA touschcreen
  • Wi-Fi
  • 7.2Mbps HSDPA
  • Video recording up to 120fps for slow-mo playback
Phew! That's one seriously long list of features. In fact, other than the ability to play the trumpet, I don't think there's anything they've actually missed out.
The LG-KC910 is, quite clearly, LG's new flagship handset, and looks set to take on the Samsung Omnia and Nokia N96 head to head. Whether it'll succeed or not will be dependent largely on how well these features are implemented, as LG are renowned for making phones with a superb feature-set, but with a poor user interface, making the features almost impossible to use.
We'll only know once we get our grubby hands on one, but fortunately we won't have to wait too long - the LG-KC910 Viewty II release date is set for October 2008, so just over a month until we find out. Source...
