LG Kc550 Orsay Launched Without a Fanfare, LG Orsay Phone

By: susan hargreaves

Unusual but true, a new mobile phone has appeared onto the UK mobile phones market with hardly a whisper, let alone the now manditory fanfare of TV adverts, forum and blog rumours.

This new phone is called the LG Orsay or to call it by its correct model number and name, the LG KC550 Orsay. Considering there was not much hype surrounding the launch of this new handset the phone offers some high specification features and technology not found in many new models.

Featuring a 5 mega pixel camera, the?LG KC550 Orsay?is officially LG's cheapest camerphone to date, the camera is accompanied by a video player and MP3 player as well as a stereo FM radio whilst the camera itself is equipped with autofocus, a Schneider-Kreuznach lens, image stabilizer, built-in flash and SmartPic technology.


The 25MB of internal memory is expandable via the microSD card slot boosting the phones overall capacity making plenty of room for saved photos, video clips and applications. A Tri Band GSM phone with GPRS and EDGE technology, the LG Orsay not only offers advanced camera features but lets you share images with friends and family via bluetooth, which comes with A2DP stereo support,? MMS messaging or using USB connectivity.

If games are more your thing, enjoy the benefits and pleasures of motion sensitive gaming with a choice of 6 pre-installed games to choose from which all use an accelerometer sensor motion and can be played on your TV screen courtesy of? a TV Output cable connection.

Further features of the KC550 include web browser, email, instant messaging, voice clarity technology, SMS with Text to Speech and a 2.4" display screen.

The Orsay offers a very similar keypad layout to the LG Chocolate phones from the Black Label Series range with a chequered pattern covering the main number keys that reflects the exterior colours of the phone. This is all hidden behind the slide of the phone so that text input is both possible directly on the screen when the phone is closed aswell as via the keypad when open.

To keep those gamers amongst you happy, the Orsay also includes 6 built-in motion sensitive games similar to how the Nintendo Wii works. A built-in accelerometer sensor reacts to the camera being tilted and rotated when playing games such as darts and fishing. Gameplay can also be enjoyed on your home Television via a TV-out cable.

The LG Orsay has been initially launched on?two UK networks, both Orange and O2 tariffs are available?to consumers signing up to a 12 or 18 month package, further network releases are expected very soon as is the buzz of this latest LG touchscreen device.
