LG Optimus Sol leaks on the web in a full-fledged photo shootout
Remember that leaked LG roadmap from not long ago? It gave us a glimpse at what we are likely to see rolling out of the company's workshop in the forthcoming months, and the devices that the leak introduced us to have already started popping up on the web one by one. After the LG Prada K2, which starred in that leaked spy video, the LG Optimus Sol (or LG Victor, as it was known as in the roadmap) has boldly stood in front of the camera for a photo shootout and a brief hands-on video.

The LG Optimus Sol is shaping up to be nothing more than a mid-range device. As it has been already mentioned before, the smartphone is powered by a single-core 1GHz processor and packs a 3.8-inch AMOLED display with WVGA resolution. Judging by what we see in the video, the phone appears to be pretty slim in profile, yet the guys mentioned that it is quite prone to collecting fingerprints. There is a front-facing shooter in tow and a 5-megapixel camera on the Optimus Sol's back, yet sadly, there is no LED flash anywhere in sight. A nice addition to the smartphone's specs sheet is the presence of a secondary microphone for noise cancellation. In terms of software, Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread is in command with the Optimus UI running on top of it.

It is not clear whether the LG Optimus Sol will ever make it to the US, yet judging by the carrier icon in the device's app list, the smartphone will most likely be offered in Europe by Vodafone. Feel free to check out the video below and share your thoughts with us in the comments.
