LG Shine 2 First Shots
LG's sequel to the Shine has been spotted today in a lone shot that confirms its eventual launch with AT&T. Aside from supporting the existence and ultimate destination of the phone, the Engadget tip shows the new phone with the similar mostly metal slider body and glass-covered display as the original. Cosmetically, the new Shine appears primarily to be more minimalist than the original with selection buttons just underneath the display.
Inside, the tentatively named Shine 2 would occupy the strict mid-range among feature phones with a 2-megapixel camera, 3G and microSD storage as its key traits. Launch details are still a mystery but are unofficially thought to involve an AT&T ship date sometime before the end of 2009.
