LG VIEWTY SMART: NEW 8.0 MEGAPIXELS CAMERA, 3D INTERFACE S CLASS TOUCHSCREEN - BUILD FOR PHOTO ENTHUSIAST

LG’s Viewty 2 has been leaked by a LG’s German blog, and it’s now called the Viewty Smart.

It looks like LG found a new routine  to wet our appetite for their upcoming high end handsets. It started with LG KM900 Arena:

First comes the leak through some dealer outlet, then we get a posting on one of the official LG Country blogs, official pre-announcement and then the official launch.

It worked quite well with LG Arena, and they are doing this again with LG Viewty II GC900 phone, which, from today will be known as LG Viewty Smart GC900.

It has been semi-oficially revealed  on an official LG Germany blog

Already known LG Viewty Smart GC900 specs include:

Quadband GSM, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, 1.4 Mbps HSUPA connectivity
3” full WVGA (800 x 480 px) touchscreen display
S class 3D interface
8 megapixel camera with Xenon Flash, manual and auto focus, image stabilizer, face tracking, burst mode , high speed video recording, ISO1600 and geo tagging
DivX and XVID playback
microSDHC support, up to 32GB
Built-in Wi-Fi
A-GPS
Accelerometer
Today’s announcement adds that LG Viewty Smart is only 12.4 mm thick and records videos at 720×480 px resolution.

It confirms that this handset  is headed for Orange mobile network and shows LG Viewty II Smart back without Xenon flash that should be there (probably a mistake) That’s about it for now. But with this semi-official outing today, the official LG Viewty Smart GC900 announcement/ launch should not be more then a couple of weeks away.

The Viewty Smart, which is due a June release, will be pack some new features, including LG’s S-Class touch-screen interface and an 8-megapixel camera that allows for video recording at a 720×480 pixel resolution. Like the LG Arena, the Smart will feature Wi-Fi connectivity, HSDPA for fast surfing, a 3-inch screen and GPS for automatic geotagging on photos. The phone is slim to boot at only 12.4 mm thick and weighs only 90g.

Little is known about the service provider, but images leaked show the Smart with an Orange logo stamped on it. Still, come this June we will learn everything we need to know about the new Viewty.

Word has just landed that the LG Viewty II will hit the UK in June. The news trickled through Orange that the 8-megapixel snapping, 3-inch WVGA touchscreen device was to get a Q2 release and it’s since been refined as just two months’ time.

The original Viewty, which is still available, is one the most successful handsets to come out of the company quickly pushing their way up the mobile phone ladder and this handset with its 32GB storage and 3D LG Arena-like interface could be their next big push in the mould of the LG Chocolate, the LG Cookie and the first Viewty itself.

No word on price or network exclusivity as yet but expect news soon as the companies involved look to settle the talk.

  1. Really pleased to see a xenon flash on the viewty 2, many other manufacturers have decent cameras but when they use an LED flash it just lets it down.
