LG Renoir (LG KC910)

 LG Renoir Discontinued
5th October 2008

We first saw the LG Renoir last month under the rather less sexy name of the "KC910". LG have now announced some more details about the Renoir, although there's very little to add to the previously stated technical specifications.

Just to recap, this is a touchscreen phone with a 3" 240 x 400 pixel widescreen display, an 8 megapixel camera, 3.5G and WiFi support plus GPS. The camera has dual LED flash and autofocus, and can use the LG Renoir's GPS receiver to geotag photographs automatically. The LG Renoir has impressive stills and video capture capabilities, and very comprehensive media playback support including an FM radio and several video codecs preinstalled.

 LG Renoir (camera side) We now know that the LG Renoir weighs 110 grams, which is pretty good considering the impressive feature set. Measurements are 108 x 56 x 14mm, which is larger than a standard phone but still pretty "pocket friendly". The 1000 mAh battery can provide up to 3.5 hours talktime or 14 days standby time on 3G.

The LG Renoir should be available in Europe during October, followed by Asia, Latin America and CIS countries in November, then Africa and the Middle East in December followed by China in January 2009. The standard colour scheme is "Titan Black", although we expect that other colours will become available too.

It isn't a cheap phone - one of LG's sources quotes a recommended SIM-free retail price of around €485 or £390. We would expect real-world prices to be cheaper than that, and of course if you take the LG Renoir with a new contract then you should get a very substantial discount indeed.

LG have also given a heads-up about an 8 megapixel slider phone called the LG KC780 due for release in October, but no further details are available from them at present.
