LG announced its 8MP slider, the KC780
In its press release about the Renoir launch, LG mentioned officially the KC780 as a ‘super slim’ 13.7mm cameraphone. Due to this, we expected to see LG announcing it as the world’s thinnest 8MP phone (after Renoir and Pixon claimed to own that title) but obviously something went wrong. Today, LG announced the slider and said that it measures as 13.9mm, just as the Renoir.

Named after the French artist, the KC910 Renoir is touted not only for its camera, but also as an all-in-one multimedia phone. KC780 is more modest and LG stresses mainly on its picture and video capturing abilities. The company claims that most of the time users take pictures of other people, and that’s why the KC780 is developed “with a number of face-enhancing features”. These include the well known face and smile detection, as well as a “Beauty Mode”, for image editing in order to remove imperfections from faces. The new slider seems to pack better video capturing options than its touch mate, capable of recording DVD-resolution (720x480) videos, so that it offers good quality on big displays.

LG KC780 is tri-band GSM (no 3G) with European-friendly frequencies, featuring 2.4” QVGA 262k color display, stereo Bluetooth, microSD slot and DivX6. Unfortunately XviD is not listed but we hope it will be supported as well. The phone is expected to go on sale in November 2008.
