LG KF750, KF240 and KF300
A trio of new LG phones will be announced at next week's CeBIT expo, leaks suggest. All three devices are said to be a part of a new fashion series; the high end is represented by the KF750, a slider which is extraordinarily thin and uses a glossy touchscreen display. Unlike most such phones the touch technology extends to the navigation pad, where glowing rings highlight buttons. Other specifications are said to include a five-megapixel still camera, a VGA camera for video calls, and 160MB of internal memory supplemented by microSD cards. A pre-release version of the 750 is already said to be on a Romanian auction site.
The KF240 is expected be announced in advance of CeBIT, possibly by the end of this week. Little is known except that it should be a music phone with a two megapixel camera, and it may ship commercially next week to Asia and Latin America, with Russia and Europe following sometime thereafter. A KF300 is also said to be in the works, but no information is in the public sphere. [via Unwired View]
