It seems that the South Koreans are lucky,having the chances to get their hands on the new branded smartphones. Back in January, at CES 2011 event, LG has officially launched the Android powered LG Optimus Black, has just been arrived in South Korea. Late yesterday, the powerful dual-core equipped Super-Droid Samsung Galaxy S II handset has also released in South Korea. We can say that the LG Optimus Black might be overshadowed by Samsung Galaxy S II’s launch.
LG Optimus Black is having the brightest 4 inches NOVA display, and is only a 9.2mm in terms of thickness, running with the out-dated Android 2.2 Froyo OS, update on Android 2.3 (Ginger Bread) to follow, running on a TI OMAP 3630 1 GHz processor, and equipped with 5 megapixel camera on the back and 2-megapixel front camera for even better video quality for video calls, HDMI port, micro-SD card slot giving the scope to expand the memory up to 32GB, Froyo skinned with Optimus UI 2.0 customizations, Gesture UI, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, DLNA capability, Wi-Fi Direct-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and more.
The NOVA Display is the star of that spec sheet though, which is capable of emitting 700 nits (candela per square meter) and it features 16 million colors support, 480 x 800 pixels resolution, and it delivers the rich colors and deep blacks. We’ve seen this feature on the recently launched Korea-based LG Optimus Big handset.
South Korean’s LG Optimus Black handset comes with specially designed Keith Haring back covers.
