LG Electronics has added two new mobile phones to its range, giving it 11 models available in the GCC. The two models are the G5500 and the higher spec G7050 which comes with a times-four digital zoom camera with a multi-shot function that can take nine shots with just one push of a button. “These higher-end mobile phones strengthen LG’s already impressive handset portfolio in the region and consolidate the company’s position as a global mobile phone player,” said Mr P.C Choi, President of LG Electronics Gulf FZE. “JAVA and MMS enabled, both phones are feature rich and will help meet growing customer demand in the region. The G5500 and G7050 offer many advantages, including data connectivity - using Infrared Interface and PC synchronization capabilities - voice dialling and voice recording, and a built-in answering machine. The talking key pad function, available in English and Arabic, is also a great new touch,” Mr Choi added. While both the G5500 and G7050 come with 40 polyphonic ring tones already on-board, their built-in WAP technology allows for additional ring tone downloading, as well as wallpaper, screensaver and picture downloading. Weighing in at just 89 grams and measuring a slim-line 94 x 44 x 21.5mm, the silver-coloured phones also feature ‘Ezi-Text’ predictive text, a 255-entry phonebook, scheduler and memo pad, data/fax capability, and both pack a sturdy battery with 2.5 hours of talk time and 150 hours’ standby time. Mr Al Sayegh said: “The Middle East’s population is growing at a rapid rate and with this comes the need to provide a wider variety of mobile phone options. Over the last year, LG has launched everything from entry-level models for more basic requirements to high-end camcorder camera phones for the discerning customer looking for an all-in-one mobile package. The G5500 and G7050 are another feather in LG’s cap and reflect the company’s enviable versatility.”
