LG KP500 specs, price leak

The recently unveiled KP500 handset from Korean manufacturer LG got more details on Thursday in terms of its specs and pricing as they pertain to the North American market. The touchscreen device will feature a 240x400 3-inch display capable of displaying a virtual QWERTY keyboard while a built-in motion sensor will tilt the orientation as required. Unlike previously believed, the built-in camera will be a three-megapixel shooter instead of five and will support recording 12fps video. The quad-band handset will support GPRS and EDGE data networks, but omits 3G.

As for memory, the KP500 will feature 46MB built-in, while a microSD card slot will offer expansion options. A built-in FM radio tuner will offer entertainment. In place of GPS, Wi-Fi or 3G features common in modern smartphones, customers will get Bluetooth A2DP support for wireless headphones. File transfer and battery charging will come via a USB port.

In the Ukraine, where the leak originated, the KP500 is expected to cost the equivalent of about $350 without contracts or any discounts usually offered by carriers in the US. [via Unwired View]
