LG KG920

 LG KG920 Discontinued
21st June 2006

Originally announced back in February, the LG KG920 handset has had a second outing at this week's Communicasia exhibition in Singapore.

The unique feature of the KG920 is the camera - it's a 5 megapixel camera phone, which would make it the highest resolution camera phone when it is launched in Germany in the summer.

It's an impressive looking device, even if it's just because of the seemingly random way that the buttons are arranged on the front. The camera is mounted on the back of the LG KG920's keypad, and the whole assembly swivels around in a really quite impressive way. The KG920 certainly isn't a pretty phone - and it's also quite heavy at 138 grams. At the risk of being a little sexist, the LG KG920 is a man's phone.

 LG KG920 Camera As you can see, the KG920 looks exactly like a digital camera from the back.. from the front it does look a little strange, but all the usual buttons are there.. somewhere. The 5 megapixel camera has autofocus and a strobe flash, but no optical zoom. It can take VGA quality video clips though (at 30 fps), and save everything onto miniSD cards, although internal memory is a pretty decent 128Mb,

It's not a huge device, measuring 108x50x18mm, but at 138 grams it's fairly heavy.. and the KG920 isn't even a 3G phone. There is a large 240x320 pixel display, and the LG KG920 also packs an MP3 player, web browser and email client.

We haven't seen the KG920's camera in action, but megapixels aren't everything. A lot depends on the quality of the lens, but the initial reports of the KG920's camera indicate that the camera is pretty good but perhaps not as sharp as a dedicate digital camera.

The LG KG920 will be released in Germany and some other European countries in the Summer of 2006.
