LG Optimus Z launched in Korea




Two days after we had a face-to-face with the LG Optimus GT540 its big brother, the Optimus Z (LG-SU950/KU9500) was also released in Korea.

The Korean model will even have it’s own over-the-air TV receiver (which will be absent once it hits global distribution):

With the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon at its core, Optimus Z is being launched with Android OS 2.1 with the option to upgrade to version 2.2 before the end of the year.

Advanced multimedia options include 3.5 inch WVGA “Hyper” HD LCD (800×480 pixels), Korea-specific T-DMB mobile TV, 5 MP camera, Dolby Mobile and DivX compatibility. Optimus Z comes with two 1,350mAh batteries, good for hours and hours of talking or entertainment.

And at only 11.05 mm thin, Optimus Z and its unique “Z- style” design is more angular than previous LG smartphones and its matte-finish metal gives the Optimus Z a solid, durable feel.

This time around, the handset will be sporting a capacitive touchscreen. And considering we just saw the Optimus GT540 last week, I’m not expecting the Optimus Z to arrive in the country soon (perhaps late in the 4th quarter?).

    Why don’t they put up the factory workers’ overworked faces instead of those Photoshopped beauts.

    At least Intel does it.

    …and another Android phone. I’m glad there’s more and more phones being released in the market. I just hope we get more here in the Philippines. So far we only have a few handsets available here in the Philippines. I hope we get them soon.

    Can you explain to me why they are using LCD screen rather than OLED? Samsung has moved to Amoled. Why use power hungry LCD and not as crisp as OLED?
