LG unveils first full touch-screen, eight-megapixel camera phone
LG has confirmed its first eight-megapixel camera phone will be available in October.
The KC910 will be the first eight-megapixel device to incorporate a full touch-screen interface, and is the slimmest of the top-spec camera phones.
The handset's camera boasts an array of features including Schneider-Kreuznach certified optics, Xenon flash, image stabiliser, auto-focus, manual-focus, face tracking, smile shot and blink detection.
It can record video from five frames per second (FPS) up to 120fps, allowing it to record in both slow and fast motion. It also plays DivX and Xvid movies straight out of the box, without the need for additional encoding.
The LG KC910 has assisted GPS-enabled navigation and an embedded GPS receiver, giving users the ability to geo-tag photos. It also has a ‘Jogging Buddy’ program that uses GPS technology to help track workouts.
The handset’s feature set also includes a customisable interface and compatibility with 3G HSDPA networks for connections up to 7.2Mbps and Wi-Fi. The device includes Dolby speakers to enhance the handset’s sound.
