LG Viewty 2 Details
LG today was revealed to have provided early details of its likely update to the Viewty in a largely unnoticed booth area at last week's CeBIT show. In addition to specifcations, Phone Arena has obtained photos that effectively confirm the GC900 will replace its camera-centric predecessor: the device will have an upgraded 8-megapixel sensor with a Schneider-Kreuznach lens and Xenon flash. It should also have a much sharper 800x480, 3-inch touchscreen useful for the phone's DivX video and Dolby Mobile sound support.
Other upgrades involve the use of LG's revamped, S-Class 3D interface borrowed from the KM900 Arena and other 2009 LG phones, 3G over HSPA, GPS and Wi-Fi. The phone as demonstrated didn't receive any release info, though it would support at least GSM and EDGE in North America while leaving 3G to the 2,100MHz band used in Europe and other regions.
