LG shows an upgraded Renoir
LG has renewed its 8-megapixel camera phone, the Renoir aka KC910. At the MWC event, the manufacturer has shown a device, named the LG KC910i, which adds a few novelties to the original. Right from the start, the updated camera powerhouse introduces a new thoroughly black design. Turn it around, and you’ll notice that a mechanical lens cover is no longer present. The other change in the design relates to the body profile, which now seems slightly thicker.

Improvements do not stop here, as the KC910i now supports Microsoft Exchange synchronization and utilizes a new camera interface, which no longer cuts a part of the image that you are taking. The KC910i’s camera is still capable of capturing video with VGA resolution at maximum 30 fps and with QVGA resolution at 120 fps in DivX format. In addition, the user interface of the device has been tweaked in order to deliver faster performance, while its appearance has been maintained as in the original.

The LG KC910i will allow for global roaming, because it features a quad-band (850/900/1800/1900) GSM support and only a single-band (2100) 3G.

I've bought Renoir as a secondary phone (next to my Sony Ericsson C905) because of perfect video recording feature. But when I looked at the 8mpx pictures made by Renoir, I've made it my primary phone immediately. LG KC910 has just AWESOME quality pictures (unfortunately, my beloved Sony Ericsson is way inferior in terms of quality of camera, not taking into account its xenon flash because I'm not interested in indoor photos).
