Today LG announced two new touch-based handsets, the high-end KC910 Renoir and the KP500. Both phones launch in European markets in October, followed by other regions in the first quarter of 2009.
- KC910: This successor to the Viewty has an 8 megapixel camera and advanced camera features, such as Schneider-Kreuznach certified optics, a Xenon flash, auto and manual focus, sensitivity up to ISO 1600 and geo-tagging. The Renoir lets users focus on anything in the viewfinder by simply touching where they want the phone to focus. The camera will focus on that spot and fire off a shot when the user lifts his/her finger. It can record video from 5 to 120 frames per second. Other camera features include Beauty Shot, which lets users remove blemishes from subjects' faces. The Renoir also has Dolby Mobile for Music, Wi-Fi, a-GPS and support for HSDPA 3G networks. Which bands it supports was not immediately available.
- KP500: LG says the KP500 will be an affordable touch screen with quad-band GSM/EDGE radios. It will come with a stylus and has messaging and photo editing features, as well as an accelerometer that will auto-rotate the display when the phone is moved.
