LG Optimus Black just got a new slogan
– the world's thinnest smartphone at just 0.36 inch or 9.2 mm. But this might change in the very near future with the unveiling of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, so stay tuned to our feed for more exciting announcements. LG's own Wayne
Park shared that the “brightest display on the market” on the LG
Optimus Black will be named as the NOVA display accordingly and will
offer optimal readability for web browsing. The LG Optimus 2X was also mentioned during LG's press conference and is set to make a spectacular appearance with its dual-core processor.
The Optimus Black will run Android 2.2 on a 4-inch screen and will offer better “pure white tones that deliver true black and white colors for ideal handset viewing.” LG assures us that better brightness does not come at the cost of worse battery life as the NOVA is 50 per cent more efficient than LCD in “general indoor” settings. Sunlight legibility is also improved on the NOVA screen.
The LG Optimus Black will also feature the world's first 2 megapixel front facing camera. The phone has not only sleek looks, but is also pretty flyweight at just 109 grams or 3.84 ounces. Designwise the new kid on the block has some tricks with a hidden receiver behind the edges on the phone. The Optimus Black comes with a 1500 mAh battery.
On the software end, the handset runs on Android Froyo with a Gingerbread update capability. Froyo is flavored with the Optimus UI 2.0 for direct access to messages, emails and missed calls from the locked screen. Gesture UI allows some more flexibility for gesture commands.
The phone is coming out globally in the
first half of 2011.
