LG has lifted the lid on a new addition to the Optimus-branded range of Android phones.

Dubbed the Optimus 2, the handset reportedly packs the 2.3 version of Android (A.K.A Gingerbread) out of the box, alongside a 3.2-inch touchscreen with 480x320 resolution and 3.2 megapixel snapper.

Elsewhere, it’s home to a 800MHz processor, plus microSD card support to boost the on board storage of 179MB by up to 32GB. A 2GB microSD is included when you buy the handset.

Rounding off the package is the handy Swype touchscreen typing app pre-installed and a 1,500 mAh battery which offers up to five hours talk time on a full charge and the usual array of connectivity options.

Availability and pricing for the Optimus 2 remain under-wraps right now. But we think it’ll be along any day now, with a price point coming at between £160 and £200 on pay as you go.
