LG has announced LG Action CAM which comes with built in 4G LTE connectivity. The camera allows users to stream directly to sites such as YouTube Live without a smartphone. The device, LG Action CAMLTE, will launch in South Korea next month followed by key markets worldwide including North America and Europe.
The 12.3-megapixel camera has a 150-degree wide angle lens. LG Action CAM will offer remote access functionality via 3G and LTE. Along with LTE, the camera also supports WiFi and Bluetooth. It even lets users download recorded images and videos on their paired smartphones. The camera is dust and water resistant and can be immersed in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. LG will launch a fully waterproof case later this year.
With a rating of IP67, the LG Action CAMLTE is completely protected from dust, sand and can be immersed in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. A completely waterproof case (available in the third quarter) will enable the camera to participate in more vigorous activities such as surfing and scuba diving. With the optional mount, the LG Action CAMLTE can capture smooth videos while attached to helmets, bicycles, cars and other fast moving objects. With a generous 1,400mAh battery the camera boasts an industry-leading Full HD recording time of up to four hours.
It even has GPS, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. LG is claiming around four hours of full HD recording time to microSD storage and live streaming should be around two hours. LG says that a remote access feature will be available following a software update coming in July 2016.
“We are committed to expanding the LG Playground ecosystem with both modules and standalone accessories and Action CAMLTE is one of many more that we plan to announce this year,” said Juno Cho, LG Electronics and Mobile Communications Company president. “Action CAMLTE is an example of the kind of innovation we will be bringing to market, devices that offer features unavailable in other competing products.”
