The LG U970 was released in 2007. The phone features a 2-megapixel camera featuring a Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens.

The main differences between the seemingly identical KE970 and the U970 is the lack of a microSD card reader in the U970 and the addition of HSDPA and a front camera for videoconferencing.


With up to 261 hours of standby time, the LG Shine offers SMS, EMS, MMS, and Email. Accessories include a travel adapter, strap, stereo headphones and inline remote/handsfree kit, and a USB data kit.


The phone features a stainless steel full metal body with a half-mirror screen. The front of the phone appears to be a mirror when the screen is off.[1] When the phone is closed there is a multi-functional scroll key.

The phone can be used as a camera, as well, with a dedicated button for taking pictures. The maximum resolution for pictures are 1600x1200 px.[2] The camera features auto focus certified by Schneider-Kreuznach.

The phone can be charged with the included proprietary USB cable.[3] The USB cable plugs into the only port on the phone, making it impossible to use the included headset while charging the phone - although it is still possible to use the phone while charging.
