LG Optimus Black grabs the world's thinnest and brightest titles, to outshine the rest with 4-inch NOVA display
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 WaynePark shared that the “brightest display on the market” on the LGOptimus Black will be named as the NOVA display accordingly and willoffer 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-inchscreen and will offer better “pure white tones that deliver trueblack and white colors for ideal handset viewing.” LG assures usthat better brightness does not come at the cost of worse batterylife as the NOVA is 50 per cent more efficient than LCD in “generalindoor” settings. Sunlight legibility is also improved on the NOVAscreen.
The LG Optimus Black will also featurethe world's first 2 megapixel front facing camera. The phone has notonly sleek looks, but is also pretty flyweight at just 109 grams or3.84 ounces. Designwise the new kid on the block has some tricks witha hidden receiver behind the edges on the phone. The Optimus Blackcomes with a 1500 mAh battery.
On the software end, the handset runson Android Froyo with a Gingerbread update capability. Froyois flavored with the Optimus UI 2.0 for direct access to messages,emails and missed calls from the locked screen. Gesture UIallows some more flexibility for gesture commands.
The phone is coming out globally in thefirst half of 2011.
