Looking at the LG Louvre GC990

lg_gc990_louvreOnce it is released to the market, there is no doubt that much of the attention will be given to the LG Louvre GC990’s revolutionary camera. And this is most definitely deservedly so as only a few other mobile phones currently have a camera as powerful as that of the GC990’s 12-Megapixel snapper (that is the Samsung Pixon 12 and the Sony Ericsson Satio). However, there’s more to the GC990 than just an ultra powerful camera.

On the Roster

At first glance, the Louvre GC990 looks a lot like the iPhone, also sporting that oversized screen (3.2-inch; TFT type) accompanied only by a couple of buttons right below it. This is definitely a good thing going for the GC990 as there’s no way they could go wrong with such a successful design.

As a Smartphone, the GC990 does have quite an impressive roster of features. This includes support for all the basic data connectivity technologies including GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, WLAN, and Bluetooth. Aside from a GPS receiver, the GC990 will also be equipped with other handy features such as an organizer, a TV out option, as well as LG’s proprietary S-Class Touch UI.

Uncertainty Mounts

Don’t get too excited though. Unfortunately, the LG Louvre GC990 is still a concept mobile that is surrounded by a lot of uncertainty, especially regarding its release date. That is, if it is ever released to the public. Here’s what LG themselves have to say about the GC990 mystery:

“The GC990 or ‘Louvre’ mobile phone from LG, is a great example of the type of mobile technology innovation LG is developing. This is a concept model only however, and as such there are no confirmed plans to bring it to market. As we have further details on our camera-phone portfolio or other mobiles, LG will provide information on where and when they will be available to consumers.”

With that, all we can do now is wait, hope, and see.
