LG Electronics launched the highly anticipated LG Shine – a stunning,
design-forward slider phone that brings sophistication and allure together with
high technical specifications and features, including expandable memory (MicroSD
card) and an auto focus camera by Schneider-Kreuznach. The latest in LG’s
premium Black Label series of mobile phones, the LG Shine will be available in 2
variants – the 3.5G HSDPA-enabled KU970, and the 2.5G EDGE-enabled KE970.
The Launch took place at local bar Clinic at Cannery.
When closed, Shine oozes sophistication with a perfectly reflective 2.2” screen.
Slide open the super-thin brushed metal body and the ‘magic mirror’ full colour
screen comes to life, while Shine’s keys are bathed in a cool blue light. Access
to Shine’s menu system is by an easy-to-use multi-function scroll key.
Also, Shine’s equipped with a comprehensive media player with multi-codec
support (MP3, WAV and ACC++) and real spectrum display. Shine also supports GPRS
and EDGE network compatibility, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. The availability

Already available in Korea, Shine has sold more than 180,000 units since
November 2006, with more than 3,500 units a day still being sold! LG expects a
significant level of excitement and sales in Singapore following a high profile
launch campaign in the UK fronted by world famous illusionist David Blaine
earlier this year.
“As the second handset in the Black Label series, there will be comparisons with
LG Chocolate which was one of the hottest selling phones in 2006. While
Chocolate undoubtedly established LG as a force in the design-led mobile sector,
Shine offers a completely unique proposition, appealing to a wider audience with
a different aesthetic and technological attraction.”
The LG Shine will be available locally at major mobile phone retail outlets from
