LG preps 8Mp Viewty successor
Popular cameraphone to be updated?
Reports are coming in that LG has designed a successor to its Viewty cameraphone. The new handset has already been unofficially dubbed the Viewty II.
LG's GC900 could replace the existing Viewty
Officially called the LG GC900, the phone’s specifications were captured by website New Mobile – which managed to snap a picture of the talker’s specifications.
What technological treats are in store? For starters, the phone will be fully touch-operated using a 3in display with an auto-rotate capability. It's said to sport a "full WVGA" resolution - so possibly up to 800 x 480. The main menu will, unsurprisingly, be based on LG’s 3D S-Class interface – as seen on the LG Arena - which guides you through features using a 3D cube.
You’ll also be treated to an 8Mp camera – with manual and autofocus options - that works alongside a selection of tasty imaging treats, such as image stabilisation, face tracking, geo-tagging and a top ISO sensitivity of 1600.
Smile shot and blink recognition will also reportedly be included, while the phone should have 32GB of on-board storage.
Mobile internet will be possible courtesy of support for HSDPA 3G connections of up to 7.2Mb/s. Wi-Fi will also be present.
A launch date or price haven’t been confirmed yet. ®
