LG Viewty 2 coming to UK?
The yet-unannounced sequel to the LG Viewty, the GC900, could be scheduled to arrive first in the UK via Orange, according to a rumor posted on Omio. The information allegedly comes from the Q2 release schedule for Orange UK, which indicates that the device will launch sometime in June. The same source suggests the Samsung 'Preston' and LG GW520 'Calisto' will launch around the same time.
The device will offer camera-centric features similar to its predecessor, but with an upgraded 8-megapixel image sensor and Schneider-Kreuznach lens. The handset is also said to feature a 3-inch touchscreen with 800 by 480 pixel resolution, along with DivX and Dolby Mobile support.
On the phone side, the device should run on the company's S-Class 3D interface and offer 3G over HSPA, GPS and Wi-Fi support. [via Pocket-lint]
