LG 8MP handset confirmed

Last week, a blurry photo and some specs on LG's second, more affordable camera phone, the KC780 were published, and more photos were unveiled today. LG claims the handset will be the thinnest on the market with an 8-megapixel camera, The included photos show the phone next to the flagship LG Renoir (KC910) handset, which also sports an 8-megapixel camera, and the two are nearly the same thickness. The KC780's back is scalloped, bulging out around the camera, suggesting that the phone will be thinner overall than the Renoir. Thus far, the thinnest 8MP pixel shooter is the Samsung M8800 Pixon, at just over half an inch thick.

The KC780 will be a slider phone and will offer quad-band GSM support along with EDGE data and Bluetooth 2.0. The phone's signature camera will have autofocus, red eye reduction and face recognition features and be capable of shooting video at 30fps. Onboard storage is limited to 140MB, but a microSD card slot allows expansion. The KC780's screen will offer touchscreen functionality but only in multimedia applications.

No release information or pricing details are currently known about the KC780. [via GSMarena]
