LG Optimus Black with WiFi Direct

LG Optimus Black with WiFi Direct




So we’ve finally gotten word of LG’s new flagship smartphone in the Optimus line — the LG Optimus Black. Juicy specs include WiFi Direct, the first 2MP front-facing camera for video calls and the new Nova display that’s said to be “brightest, clearest and most readable” display on a mobile phone.

At just 9.2mm on the side, it’s also one of the thinnest Android smartphone we’ve encountered where the edge tapers to just 6mm (though the Xperia Arc is thinner at 8.7mm).


 

LG Optimus Black
4-inch Nova display @ 480×800 pixels
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
WiFi Direct
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
GPA w/ aGPS support
Optimus UI 2.0
Android 2.2 Froyo (upgradable to 2.3)

Full specs have not been revealed in the press release but we’re hoping a 5 to 8MP camera with HD video recording. Expected release date is 2nd quarter of this year. Will post an update once they come in.

    i like the specs and the design .. though it’s not like SE arc’s metallic design, i think it’s still is better .. but it flawed on the OS part, why don’t they just get Honeycomb ?! if they’d get that OS, i’m sure this phone is gonna be a worldwide cellphone killer ! now i’m doubting what to buy (if they are already out in the market).. but, sure these phones wouldn’t be cheap ! :)
