LG KC910 is the 8-megapixel successor of Viewty
LG just officially announced to us the successor of the Viewty, the KC910. It is an all-in-one multimedia phone, sporting 8-megapixel camera, Dolby sound for music, and DivX and XviD support for video playback. At 14mm thickness, LG announces the KC910 as the slimmest 8MP phone on the market. It has Xenon flash, Schneider-Kreuznach lens, ISO up to 1600 and can capture video in VGA resolution at 30fps and in QVGA at up to 120fps for slow motion effect. Thanks to a built-in GPS, the photos can be geo tagged with the coordinates of the place they are taken at.
Other camera features include option for manual focus, face, smile and blink detection and digital image stabilizer. The KC910 is a quad-band GSM with support for HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, has Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi, microSD slot for up to 8GB of memory, 3-inch WQVGA 240x400 touch display and TV-out for watching images or videos on larger screen. There is no information if it will run on the same interface as the Viewty and the KF700, or on a new one. LG says that it will come to the market in October of this year.

Whats the point of an 8 Megapixel camera if your screen is only 400 x 240 pixels...

are you serious...maybe some people do more with their photos than just look at them on the cell phone

Yeah, anyone serious enough to need 8 mpix will use a real camera with real optics and sensors.

I don't know if you know this, but 12 MP cameras have 320x240 screens.

Well, actually there's no point of having 8 MP yet. Mobile phones have way to little "camera-hardware" to get high-res pictures like a "real" camera with 8MP. The pictures on this phone will be as good as if it was 5 MP. But it looks nice on the paper though ;)

um dude. i dont know about ya'll but first off camera's dont have insurance on them like phones do. if you break a camera it's a long process to get it fixed. when you're in the mosh pit and you wanna take a video of your favorite bands playing you dont want a fucking camera haning around your neck. whip your your phone and snag a vid or pic. or if you're skating and you happen to be video taping someone varial fliping off of the stairs at school you can video tape it. get real dude. the camera is a nice add on. and you're retarded if you think someone is going to lug a caear around with them as well as a cell phone. both in one.

I have one of these and my brother has the old 5mp viewty - we compared them and even tho the screens are pretty much the same there i a huge difference in quality. I have to say this phone is amazing in so many ways

I've got the LG Viewty which is awesome and this phone is coming tomorrow. I'll do a full comparisson and write it up! It looks pretty god damn good though. :-)

@kris they are talking about an image on computer. beside 400x240 isn't bad at all

posted on 22 Aug 2008, 07:46

5. kris (unregistered)


Yea, I understand that you will upload your photos to the PC. And I get that the camera can be good. But it seems silly that the successor to the Viewty wouldnt have an upgraded screen. Its not too bad, but I am thinking about the HTC T-Diamond. 2.8 inch screen, 640 x 480 resoultion...

HTC TouchDiamond? Are you big on S&M or something? I will never buy an HTC phone again until they start making products that last a couple months without complete frustration. I'm either going back to LG, Nokia, or Apple next time.

megapixels dont mean crap, give us optical zoom!

ever see any pictures from the samsung g800 it had optical zoom and the quality was terrible!

so youre saying the optical zoom didnt help at all? digital zoom degrades photo quality!

posted on 03 Nov 2008, 18:19

104. (unregistered)


dont zoom then? why do you need to zoom - just crop the image to size if you want a tighter range. You've got 8MP to play with. You simply can't fit optical zoom in a phone and have good quality photos at all ranges. The optics in compact lenses are terrible which is why most cameras are fixed zoom. optical zoom just sucks more battery life, makes the phone thicker, means you have worse optics. And you're wrong when you say digital zoom degrades quality. digital zoom is just lowering the effective image size. So if you zoom in a bit the image will be smaller and only 5MP. Same quality as before just slightly smaller image. It doesn't keep it 8MP size and zoom in by dithering. Same can be achieved by cropping.

trust me... digital zoom does degrade quality. When you use a digital zoom it simply enlarges the image...Doesn't magnify the lenses at all. Its like on paint when you get a small image and make it bigger.. It becomes really bad quality and all pixely and lame.

i agree the design blows should have thrown in QWERTY and removed the three button things... basically just put the camera on the XPERIA

think you'll find it does have qwerty - you just need to turn the phone on its side and the qwerty touch keyboard appears automatically

if u want 16 million colors, try bb bold. but the clarity is far superior to that of the terribly overrated overpriced piece of ijunk

posted on 23 Aug 2008, 18:38

The BB Bold is too expensive... $399... And it only comes with 1gb of Internal memory. I would suggest to wait until the price drops, or get an iphone

wow, that's an awesome iPhone. Is it just me or is every new phone coming out attempting the design of the iPhone? minimal buttons on the front, large, widescreen display, about the size of a deck of cards with rounded edges. Nice try with this one LG, and with the Voyager, and Samsung's Instinct, and the HTC Touch Pro.

give me example for full touchscreen phone that don't look like that? and psst i've got something for your... do u know that iphone is not the first phone with touchscreen? btw HTC Touch Pro is nothing like that tard!

His comment started of well... until he mentioned the minimal buttons, large widescreen display, about the size of a deck of cards - i think this is a prerequisite for a touchscreen phone - your not exactly gonna chuck a bunch of buttons on a touchscreen are you? What does annoy me is how the casing angles back in around the display and shows the wall thickness of the casing, and how the profile is overly curved - that is what everyone has copied from the iPhone...

Hi, you are very ignorant and uninformed. Moto created the first touchscreen phone in 1999, and LG the first candybar style phone in around 2006 with the LG Prada, also the first GUI of its kind (four main icons on the bottom of the screen). P.S. It has 3 buttons and a large screen on the front.

"give me example for full touchscreen phone that don't look like that?" See: every HTC phone/PPC made. There's like 50, most looking unique. And it's "doesn't", not don't. And we all know iPhone wasn't the first touchscreen phone, quit being a hater. It was just the first multi-touch input phone. And no matter how hard the mainstream phone developers try they just can't seem to get a touchscreen input as accurate and intuitive as iPhone's. Trust me, I've tried them all (HTCs, Voyager, Viewty, Instinct, Dare, Vu, etc.)

I would wager that it's going to be AT&T that gets this phone. T-Mobile doesn't ever get anything cool. Not to mention, they have never sold LG stuff.

...T-Mobile may or may not be getting this phone but they have been doing a pretty good job announcing some exclusives.

actually it DOES have autorotate - called accelerometer as someone else mentioned - works perfect for texting (turn on its side to get full qwerty keyboard) and videos and pics - works for it all

nokia will release it 8 mpx phone in early November, but no details about it form factor yet. and optical zoom in mobile phones still hard to implement with acceptable quality, because of the restrictions of keeping the thickness to a acceptable level. this phone looks great, and its good to see some tough competition in mobile world .

Every touch screen is the same. They just have a screen and a few buttons that's all so you can't say Lg copied Iphone just because of that.It's just like saying Iphone copied Nokia phones because they are still phone ans you use it to call, it means that every phone that is evermade with a sreen, take photos and call are all copycats of each other? Honestly people really need to keep their "Iphone copycat" to tathemselves.
