LG Electronics, a pioneer in consumer electronics and telecommunications, will be introducing the KG920 – the world’s slimmest 5 (five) mega-pixel camera phone to the South African market in July.
LG Mobile showcased the KG920 to the public at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona in March 2006. The 3GSM World Congress is the world’s leading mobile communications conference & exhibition that attracts over 680 exhibitors, 33 800 visitors and 1200 media from 171 countries.
The super slim KG920 is just 18mm wide and adopts an innovative Twist and Slim design, featuring a real digital camera, which allows users to rotate the camera to 180 degrees to enable them to take self portrait pictures. The KG920’s handset incorporates an auto focus CCD (Charge Coupled Device) camera and a 2 inch QVGA TFT LCD screen for VGA-level videos recording and play back at 30 frames per second. Memories can be preserved with Zoom, brightness settings and various special effects. Video files can also be viewed on the KG920 LCD and can be sent to a personal computer (PC) to make an album.
The handset also features a strobe flash which makes shooting at a distance of 1.5 meters possible. Functions such as Bluetooth where a user can answer the phone and also share data wirelessly through mobile phone and a PC within up to 50 meters range in high-speed with convenience are what set KG920 aside from the rest. The handset comes standard with a built in MP3 player where one can enjoy music at CD level audio quality. USB ports as well as a Mini SD Memory (128MB included) are other functions available on the KG920.
LG KG920 will be available in South Africa from July 2006!
