LG reveals Louvre - its first 12Mp cameraphone

Museum quality masterpiece?

3 Big data security analytics techniques

LG has been talking up its plans to join the 12Mp cameraphone race for months. Now the firm has finally shown off its first offering, sort of.

Called the GC990 - or the Louvre - the co-called super-shooter unveiled the handset at a recent event in Warsaw is just a prototype, website GSM Arena reports.

So it’s unclear if Louvre’s the same 12Mp mobile with “even more smart features” that LG first spoke about in May.

12.1Mp - trying to prove a point, LG?

However, LG confirmed that Louvre’s camera has two main features aside from its high-end shooting capability: "Intellizoom" and "Touch Focus". While the latter sounds straightforward, Intellizoom could mean almost anything.

The Louvre will shoot video too, at 720p HD. Videos can then be sent to your TV through the phone’s TV-out port. DLNA support means you can send the content to network-connected players.

Equipped with LG's S-Class UI

Additional camera capabilities include an ISO sensitivity of up to 1600, zero shutter lag and support for geo-tagging.

LG’s based the GC990 around a 3.2in LCD display able to display up to 16m colours. The phone also features Bluetooth, DivX support and runs the S-Class Touch UI, as seen on LG’s Arena handset – reviewed here.

Because Louvre’s still labelled as a prototype, it’s unclear if the phone will ever make it into stores. ®
