LG plans to launch Optimus Big with 4.3" NOVA display

LG plans to launch Optimus Big with 4.3" NOVA display
We were tipped on another upcoming phone, which allegedly carries LG's bright shining NOVA display technology, as found on the LG Optimus Black (our preview here), but in a 4.3" form. The phone is codenamed LG Optimus Big for now, and is supposed to appear on the LG U+ carrier in Korea next month.

The source says that the handset is powered by a 1GHz single-core chipset, and has a T-DMB TV tuner, which, of course, is of any use only in Korea.

We don't know yet when or if the Optimus Big will be sold outside of Korea, but we certainly hope so. In our own screen comparison with the Retina Display, Super AMOLED and ClearBlack AMOLED, the NOVA technology outshined them all with its 700 nits of brightness.

Thanks, James!

I have big hands so 4.3" screen is just right. If you dont like big phones dont buy one. You are bound to find a screen more to your liking.

I'm so sick of all these monstrous 4.3 inch smartphones! 4.3inches is just too, too big. Though I would be willing to go as high as the 4in on the Samsung Epic. On a smartphone every tenth of an inch and every millimeter counts.

I think that 4.3" isn't VERY big. That's normal. I've played with HTC Desire HD recently and the screen hasn't seemed VERY big... P.S.: Sorry for my English.

I'm quite the opposite Jayshmay. 4.3 is perfect for me. I picked up my thunderbolt the other day and it is great for gaming, internet browsing, videos, pictures, google maps, navigation and much more. Heck, if android get plants vs. Zombies then there will be no reason to pick up my ipad.

the best fitting screen I've found on nokia C6-01. I'm tired of these monstrous screens too, but if you consider to buy a smartphone with big screen for multimedia and games you'd have a look at Acer Iconia Smart that is not as big as tablets' sizes.
