LG announce the LG GD900 Crystal

LG Electronics (LG) announces the launch of the world’s first transparent handset, the LG GD900 Crystal.


The Crystal Touchpad, the keypad of the LG GD900 Crystal, slides out effortlessly from under the display and emits a soft, warm glow. The LG GD900 Crystal boasts LG’s new S-Class 3D user interface (UI), while the fully transparent touchpad is made of highly durable tempered glass that is ultra-strong and encased within a frame able to absorb shock and vibration.

Not only stylish, the LG GD900 Crystal also stands out with its advanced navigational functions. The Crystal Touchpad can be used in the same way as a touchpad on a laptop computer with Gesture Shortcuts that enable users to configure their favourite shortcut with a simple gesture of a finger. This function reduces the amount of steps required to access multi-tasking features, for instance, users can immediately jump to the web browser in the middle of writing an e-mail by tracing a symbol on the Crystal Touchpad with their finger.

“We are constantly looking at ways to produce awe-inspiring products, ones that capture the imagination of consumers,” says Jeremy Newing, head of marketing, LG Mobile UK. “This is a handset that reaffirms our approach to product design, combining stunning visual appeal as well as the latest technology.”

The LG GD900 Crystal also features the same S-Class UI used on the LG Arena and a dedicated chipset for multimedia and graphic content. Together with the touch features and additional processing speed, the LG GD900 Crystal is a high performing and unique looking multimedia device. 

Features of the LG GD900 Crystal also include:

  • 8MP camera
  • 3” full touchscreen with auto-rotating display
  • MP3 player
  • External memory capacity of 32GB
  • Wi-Fi™
  • Bluetooth 2.1

The LG GD900 Crystal will be available from the 1st of July exclusively at the Carphone Warehouse.
