Video mobile operator 3 has started selling the LG U8120 from LG Electronics, describing it as an updated version of the summer's best selling contract mobile phone in the UK.
The LG U8120, available on 3's VideoTalk, pay-monthly price plans, features a number of enhancements over its predecessor, the LG U8110.
Measuring 95.7mm x 49.5mm x 23.1mm and weighing 126g, the latest version boasts an increased internal memory of 32MB and a redesigned front face.
The incorporated camera is a VGA rotating video and still camera, with self-timer and light. A speakerphone is also included for hands-free video calls and music playback.
The LG U8120 retains the features offered by the first model, including QuickPlay, 3's video streaming service; person-to-person video-calling and a range of messaging services that includes email, video mail and SMS.
Bob Fuller, 3 chief executive, said in a statement: "The LG U8110 has been our top selling contract handset and we expect the enhanced U8120 to be even more popular."
Separately, 3 said it now had 3.2 million customers in the UK, Italy, Hong Kong, Australia, Austria, Sweden and Denmark, having added 2.5 million in the first half of 2004.
