News Nugget – LG L-03C is more camera than phone

LG's latest Japanese release is aimed at people more interested in taking photos than making calls

The L-03C is more of a camera with a phone stuck on than the other way around. Due to hit the shops in Japan in January, you’d be forgiven for not realising it was a phone at all.

It  comes with a 12.1MP sensor and a Pentax 1:3.6-5.5 lens with 3x optical zoom. There’s also a 720p HD video mode, GPS and WiFi onboard.

It’s quite a looker, too, with a tasteful dollop of Japanese minimalism and lovely grip bulge that would make taking snaps a joy, but may be a bit bulky in the pocket. It comes in either a stealthy matte black or classy silver and brown finish. Oh, and it’s also a phone.

Sadly it’s unlikely ever to make it to these shores, being a special made for Japanese network DoCoMo, but we can always hope that something similar is released over here, LG or otherwise.
