LG Electronics to launch smartphone with built-in augmented reality feature

By Lee Youkyung
SEOUL, Feb. 22 (Yonhap) -- In an apparent move to guard its domestic market share against rivals like Apple Inc., LG Electronics Inc. has decided to offer a number of built-in services in its second smartphone model in South Korea, rather than leaving users to download them all from application stores, LG said Monday.

The LG-LU2300 model will be ready-loaded with most frequently used applications, such as an augmented reality service, a technology that identifies names and histories of places or buildings when shown in the camera of a mobile phone.
