The LG Renoir (KC910) has been unveiled in a preview post over at the LG Blog — this mobile phone will be the successor to the LG Viewty which we reviewed here at Zath when it was launched in the run-up to last Christmas.
The LG Renoir’s (KC910) headline features will be its 8 Megapixel camera, 3” fully touchscreen 240×400 pixel display and three physical function buttons. Here’s a list of some of the specifications that we can expect to see from this new LG cameraphone:
- 3” WQVGA 240×400 pixel touchscreen display
- ISO1600 8MP Camera, utilising Schneider-Kreuznach optics and an image stabiliser
- Videocamera, VGA at 30fps, QVGA at 120fps using DivX and Xvid encoding formats
- 3G connectivity (HSDPA)
- Bluetooth 2.0
- TV-Out Support
- GPS — including the ability to ‘geotag’ the photos you take
- Use SD cards up to 8GB in size
I’m looking forward to seeing this new LG Renoir (KC910) mobile phone up close and having a play with it, from the sounds of it, they are really trying build upon their success with the LG Viewty and are basically upgrading that with more state-of-art mobile technology.
For me the LG Renoir’s (KC910) GPS and 3G/Wi-Fi connectivity combined with a high quality camera/video should make for some great photography and media possibilities! – I just hope they come up with a catchier name other than the LG KC910 to follow the LG Viewty when it is released around October 2008 – UPDATE: they obviously took my advice as they then named it the LG Renoir! 😉
