Launch of 5 megapixel touchscreen handset to redefine the camera phone standard
August 22, 2007, Seoul, Korea - LG Electronics today announces plans to launch the “LG Viewty” (LG KU990), a sleek touchscreen handset with advanced imaging features.
The LG Viewty is the first feature-oriented handset, and combines ultimate functionality with sensational style.

Dr. Skott Ahn, CEO of LG Mobile says “This is a very exciting time for us. The LG Black Label Series and our collaboration with PRADA have cemented our position as an innovator in design and style. With the launch of the new LG Viewty we are now also proving our commitment to technical enhancement and look forward to taking the feature phone category by storm.”
The LG Viewty will be available for purchase on contract with multiple operators in the UK later this year and will first be revealed during IFA 2007 in Berlin on August 31, 2007.
More technical specifications of the LG Viewty will soon be announced, including details on the comprehensive editing capabilities.
