LG Viewty Smart

LG on Monday officially took the wraps from the Viewty Smart. Unofficially known as the Viewty II, it has the same 480x800 capacitive touchscreen and iPhone-like S-Class 3D interface as other 2009 LG phones but centers on an 8-megapixel camera that can record video in widescreen 480p and can handle light sensitivity up to ISO 1,600. It carries an LED flash and supports modes often reserved for dedicated cameras, like continuous shooting and panorama stitching.

The phone is one of LG's highest-end models outside of its camera and supports 3G at up to 7.2Mbps downstream, GPS for navigation and Wi-Fi for short-range data. Although it has just 1.5GB of storage onboard, the Viewty Smart has a microSDHC slot that holds up to 32GB extra content.

LG now plans to launch the cellphone for Europe in May and will expand availability to other areas afterwards, though whether the phone supports US networks or will ship to the country haven't been mentioned.
