LG KU950, KG208 phones

Two upcoming phones from LG have been revealed. Click below for photos. At CES is the KU950, whose screen can be tilted sideways to reveal a keypad and a VGA video camera. This camera is crucial to the phone, as LG is highlighting its videoconferncing ability, which is unusual in that most 3G phones can only do two-way video. The 950 will also have a 1.3-megapixel still camera, plus Bluetooth, a microSD slot, and a TV tuner. Plans for North American deployment have yet to be formalized, but LG expects Verizon to carry a pared-down version this quarter. Somewhat ironically, the Verizon edition will be missing the conferencing option.

China will soon be receiving the KG208, a rare example of a candybar Chocolate phone. Features will be relatively limited, highlights being music playback and a 1.3-megapixel camera. Supported audio files are MP3, WMA, and AAC/+/++. External microSD storage is complemented by 64MB of internal memory. [Via DailyTech, SlashPhone]
