LG Optimus Black P970 : Price, Specs, Photos

According to LG, LG Optimus Black P970's 4-inch NOVA display - with its 700 nits of brightness - is the clearest, brightest and most readable among all mobile screens currently used in the market.

Touted as the world's slimmest smartphone (again, according to LG), 9.2mm-thin Optimus Black runs Android 2.2 Froyo OS with its 1GHz TI OMAP 3630 chip. The phone features a 2 MegaPixel front-facing camera aside from the more powerful 5 MegaPixel shooter at the back, allowing users to use high quality video telephony functions after Gingerbread platform upgrade.

LG Optimus Black P970 is now available in the Philippines with a suggested retail price of PhP 19,990 -- not bad for a phone of its calibre, I think.

  1. is the price official? coz I was planning to buy Samsung Galaxy Tab or SL but with few price difference I think I'll go with this one? Is this available now in most malls in metro?

  2. Why are you foregoing a tablet for this phone? Just curious... because they have different functions. Unless your goal is to try out a decent Android gadget.

  3. i'm quality analist and i work testing handsets.. and one of them was this P970... it's fantastic! a very nice handset! i want to buy one of this.. but, the only problem with that is its battery.. if the BT is on the battery got poor so fast! =/
    but its very nice!

  4. hello chico... whre can i buy this phone??
