I told you. LG was quietly working hard in the background during 2010, preparing for domination this year.
As if to show everyone that they weren't really slacking off in 2010, LG today shocked the tech world by unveiling its super-slim 2011 Android flagship smartphone, LG Optimus Black, at CES 2011 --
Touted as the world's slimmest smartphone (at least that's how LG calls it), 9.2mm-thin LG Optimus Black runs on Android 2.2 Froyo operating system with Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade capability. Flaunting a 2 MegaPixel front-facing camera aside from a more powerful one at the back, LG Optimus Black allows users to use high quality video telephony functions after platform upgrade.
But the real highlight of this phone is its display. According to LG, Optimus Black's 4-inch NOVA display is designed to be the clearest, brightest and most readable among mobile screens with 700 nits of brightness for optimal visibility. LG Optimus Black's screen provides users with a 'more natural experience' when reading emails, writing documents, or browsing the web with pure white tones and higher levels of brightness that deliver true black and white colors for ideal viewing.
Can't wait to see how this Nova display actually looks like!
LG hasn't given word on the phone's price but promises that the handset will be released globally within the first half of 2011. I hope they bring it here early.
There's still much to know about this smartphone so please stay tuned for updates.
