LG Viewty 2 Now Official

At CeBIT earlier this year, LG had showcased a hush-hush prototype of a second Viewty handset featuring an 8 megapixel camera. Aside from that fact the handset is more official now, according to sources it will incorporate a whole lot more than just a high end camera. It was simply called the Viewty 2 but is being dubbed the Viewty Smart. Running on LG’s new S-Class 3D UI, I wonder if this one will be more popular than the original.

The handset will feature –

  • a 3-inch capacitive touch-display with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution and 16 million colors
  • Wi-Fi, EDGE/GPRS, 3G with HSDPA
  • GPS with A-GPS support
  • Bluetooth with A2DP and USB 2.0
  • 32GB of internal memory and support for microSD cards as well
  • Dolby Mobile technology
  • DivX/XviD support for video playback
  • 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash (pity it’s not Xenon) and Schneider-Kreuznach optics
  • 12mm thin

The large display will come with an accelerometer as well as multi-touch functionality. Essentially it’s almost a clone of the Arena KM900 with the only visible difference being its camera. So naturally the price will presumably be higher. How high is yet to be revealed.

According to reports it’s possible it would be launched sometime in or after June ’09.
