LG Shine-Inspired Phones

Recognizing the success of its recent Shine slider phone in Europe and Korea, LG at 3GSM has introduced a pair of new phones to appeal to those who prefer different shapes. Both the bar-shaped KE770 and clamshell SV490 are directly influenced by their pioneering cousin and are dominated by brushed metal, separating them from the plainer metal and plastic surfaces of most other phones.

Curiously, however, LG has not publicly released details the devices' abilities, leaving their features to speculation; both phones are likely to share the same 2-megapixel camera and Kreuznach-Schneider lens of the original Shine and should also have a dedicated music player. Both devices should receive a full unveiling before their initial release in Korea, which will be followed by international launches elsewhere. Photos follow after the break. [via AVING]
