LG Optimus 2 makes an appearance on LG's web site
Taking a look at LG’s web site, we’re greeted with a new handset that we haven’t seen or heard about that much of late. Specifically, the LG Optimus 2 is sitting very pretty on the manufacturer’s web site where it’s tagged as “Multitasking Made Easy.

Besides seeing a distinguishable and detailed image of the upcoming smartphone, we’re also presented with some concrete specs. In fact, it features a 3.2” display with a resolution of 320 x 480, single-core 800MHz processor, 3.2-megapixel auto-focus camera, Bluetooth 3.0 with EDR, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a microSD card slot.

Considering that it’s mentioned to support CDMA EVO Rev. A in the 800/1900MHz bands, it’s clearly hinting to be compatible with any of the CDMA carriers in the US – though, LG doesn’t explicitly mention any specifics about it. Nor is there an exact timeline on when the LG Optimus 2 will be released, then again, we might hear more about that come CES.

In any event, we’d fathom seeing this one priced on the lower end to make it affordable on any budget. Obviously, its specs are hardly drool worthy, but still, it makes for a wonderful beginner smartphone for those looking to take the plunge.

Hardly an upgrade if you ask me. But a budget is a budget.

Android that is not 4'' is not a REAL Android.

it needs 4''+ screens, six-core pack processor, 38mp camera and will still get slow and lag.

Listen, pal! All android phones do not need a 90 inch screen and 64 MP camera. Back then, they hardly knew what a "touch screen" was. No, I am not an antique, I have an LG Saber, and you better know that not all phones are Superheroes.
