LG GC990 Louvre is equipped with a masterpiece 12 MP camera with Schneider-Kreuznach optics, auto/touch focus, xenon flash and most importantly, it is able to record HD video clips (1280 x 720 pixels) at 30 fps.

The handset comes complete with a new feature dubbed Intellizoom. Other camera stuff include ISO up to 3200, camera images geo-tagging and zero shutter lag, which presumably means images will be taken as fast as with a dedicated digital camera.

The 12 MP still shots and the HD video recording add up to the best cameraphone we have seen so far (at leaston paper anyway). Until now user had to choose either the HD-videos of Samsung i8910 Omnia HD or the 12 MP resolution of the Samsung M8910 Pixon12 and Sony Ericsson Satio but with the GC990 Louvre you will be able to get the best of both worlds.

On top of the fancy camera, the LG GC990 Louvre also sports Wi-Fi with DLNA, TV-out, GPS and a 3.2" 16M color touchscreen display.

LG GC990 Louvre runs the latest S-Class Touch UI and has an accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate. The final features of the LG Louvre include GPS receiver with A-GPS support, Bluetooth as well as DivX and Xvid video formats support.

There is no word of the LG GC990 Louvre availability and pricing yet but stay tuned as we expect to more information to be available soon.

Special thanks to Sebastian Duch for sending this in.

Update 08 July. LG GC990 is still a concept and 'Louvre' nickname is just an internal project name. Please check the official LG statement below.

"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."
