We've brought you news of the LG KC910 previously but can now confirm that the October launch date includes the UK too, where the phone will be available with multiple (as yet unnamed) operators on a contract-only basis.

LG is touting the KC910 - the "pet name" of which is the "Renoir" as the world's first (and incidentally slimmest) 8-megapixel multimedia phone with a full touchscreen interface.

The LG-KC910 is also notable for being the first handset to include Dolby Mobile, an integrated suite of audio processing technologies which claims to bring clean, powerful bass to the music listening experience.

The camera gets xenon flash, image stabiliser, auto-focus, manual focus, face tracking, smile shot and blink detection, can record vid from 5fps to 12fps and plays DivX and Xvid. In addition, there's GPS, the "jogging buddy" sports feature, Wi-Fi and full fat 3G HSDPA.

Speaking at the UK launch event for the device, John Barton of LG said: "This has a great interface and has a lot of features that supersede other devices, and offers something other than just a brand".

We'll bring you more when the operator announcements hit nearer that October debut date.

ee.co.uk - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
