11 Oct 2010

LG accidently revealed images of its new Optimus 7 handset, which runs the Windows Phone 7 platform and features a 5-megapixel camera.

The images were posted on LG’s UK blog ahead of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 announcement later today and were quickly pulled from the blog.

The LG Optimus 7 has a 3.8-inch WVGA touchscreen display and 16GB of internal memory.

It offers Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, GPS, a digital compass and light sensor.

The 5-megapixel camera can shoot video at 720p resolution. It can also take 360-degree panoramic photos.

The Optimus 7 will also feature DLNA streaming functionality called Play-To, a message transcribing app called Voice-to-Text and an augmented reality real-time search service, Scansearch.
