LG launches the water-proof Action CAM LTE: stream anywhere, control it remotely
A couple of months ago, LG announced a new upcoming gizmo for its Playground ecosystem – the LG Action CAM LTE. As the name suggests, it's a portable camera, which offers users 4G connectivity, and comes with some protection to withstand some rough usage. In the case of the Action CAM, it's IP67-certified dust- and water-proof, allowing you to take it on those bumpy rides and hikes, documenting the whole thing.

The little camera can record 30 FPS in UHD (1440 x 2560), up to 60 FPS in FHD (1080 x 1920), and up to 120 FPS in HD (720 x 1280). Additionally, it can stream footage (in HD, 30 FPS) over 3G, LTE, or Wi-Fi, and supports YouTube Live. It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 and 2 GB of RAM, and has 4 GB of storage solely meant for its operating system. If the user wants to record any footage on the camera, they need to insert a microSD card of up to 2 TB.

You don't need an LG G5 to pair up to the Action CAM LTE — just any Android 5.0 Lollipop and above, or iOS 9 and up device. Syncing is done via the already available Action CAM LTE app and allows the user to store photos or video straight to their phone or tablet, and control the camera remotely. So, essentially, it can be used as home surveillance, if one so desires.

The Action CAM LTE comes with a small mount of its own, which provides some extra protection and allows it to be attached and used as an action camera. However, it's built to standard and can accommodate a wide variety of 3rd party stands, tripods, mounts, and accessories.

It's available in Titan Silver and is rolling out in South Korea today. Other “key markets” are said to follow in the weeks to come. Unfortunately, the gizmo's price is not yet revealed.

guess you can just use smartphone to check battery level, storage left, recording mode and stuff and this cam wont be cheap, looking from its specs (SD650 and others, lol..)
