LG KC910 Rumor
A new purported leak has LG developing a new touchscreen phone that would trump most competitors' offerings in sheer features. Referred to as the KC910, the handset would be one of LG's first eight-megapixel cameraphones and would add Xenon flash, image stabilization, and automatic face detection. It would also have the processing power to record widescreen 720x480 video at full speed. The interface will be "completely new" and quadruple the resolution of the screen from 400x240 to 800x480, according to the report.
The phone should allegedly be thin at 14mm (0.55in) thick and use premium materials such as an aluminum shell and a glass screen.
While the KC910 is far from confirmed, the description fits in line with available technology for camera phones and would have the LG device introduced in October, in time to compete against a reported Motorola rival that would also incorporate both an eight-megapixel camera and a touchscreen.
