LG KG920: 5-megapixel camera phone with autofocus

LG has today unveiled the highly anticipated KG920, which has a 5-megapixel twisting camera, autofocus and flash

It seems like phones are literally falling from the sky this week -- Motorola, BenQ-Siemens and now LG have all launched phones in the past few days. Today LG has announced the highly anticipated LG KG920 camera phone. This is great news for all camera phone fans as the KG920 features a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, LED photo light and flash.

An interesting feature of the camera is that it twists 180 degrees in the same way as the Nokia 3250, but we're not convinced you need this feature -- why can't you just move your hand? The KG920 has an expandable miniSD slot that supports up to 2GB, so you can store your pics on the phone -- LG is also throwing in a 256MB card for free. The phone also features an MP3 player, Bluetooth and even makes calls...

This summer there's been a camera phone revolution and with the launch of the Sony Ericsson K800i and now the LG KG920, the days of taking blurry photos with your phone seem to be over. This phone will be available at the Carphone Warehouse in August, although information on pricing is still very sketchy. -AL
