LG 8MP handset leaks

LG is following up the high-end KC910 smartphone and its 8-megapixel camera with a more affordable handset with the same high-count shooter, the KC780. The new handset has recently been approved by the FCC for the 1900MHz GSM band and Bluetooth, but also promises to offer quad-band GSM and GPRS and EDGE data network support. The 8MP camera will include autofocus, red eye reduction and face recognition software, as well as 30fps video recording.

Storage will be comprised of 140MB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot for expansion. The handset will connect with computers and charge its battery via a USB 2.0 port, while short-range wireless data transfer and connection with other phones is done thanks to the Bluetooth 2.0 interface.

LG's decision to bring out two handsets with high-megapixel cameras is similar to the earlier Viewty KU990, which the KC910 replaced, and the KC550, which would be the equivalent of the KC780. Both of the older phones sported 5MP cameras. [via Unwired View]
