As a general rule, mobile phone cameras are usually pretty anemic. Even the 5 megapixel camera on the upcoming Hero isn't really anything to get excited about if you own even a fairly cheap digital camera. That's why LG has decided to break conventions by giving its upcoming GC990 Louvre smartphone what's probably the best camera in the mobile phone world.

How's 12.1 Megapixels sound to you? Still not good enough? How about a Schneider-Kreuznach lens, auto-focus, a Xenon flash, and the ability to record in high-def at 30 FPS? If you aren't drooling yet then it's probably safe to say that you aren't a photography nerd.

Don't worry if you aren't. LG didn't focus everything on their badass camera. The Louvre is still a very respectable smartphone at its core. It's got a 3.2” touchscreen, WiFi, aGPS, DNLA, TV out, Bluetooth, Xvid/Divx playback, and the S-Class UI. The Louvre isn't going to win any awards for 'fastest smartphone', but its 'most ridiculous camera' award should dull the pain a little.

We don't know when this new LG phone will come out. LG hasn't even confirmed whether or not this new phone will ever make it into their regular line-up. It's possible this will end up being just another scrapped smartphone, but I think not. The Louvre is too cool to not see the light of day.
