LG Electronics Australia has announced the official launch of the highly anticipated LG KC910 – also known as Renoir. The Renoir is a full touchscreen 8 megapixel multimedia phone, combining the latest features and an intuitive full touchscreen interface to create an exceptional multi-sensorial experience.
Renoir’s industry-leading camera features create ultimate viewing enjoyment by taking super-sharp 8 megapixel pictures, perfectly focused on whatever the user touches on screen and ready for sharing online or in print. The user-optimized interface is both intuitive and easily customizable, providing the perfect canvas for multimedia experiences.
Following on from the success of its predecessor LG Viewty, Renoir has evolved to incorporate superior sound and better use of touch. With a slim profile (14 mm) for an 8 megapixel camera phone, Renoir follows in the tradition of LG Viewty which debuted as the slimmest 5 megapixel camera phone.
