New LG Optimus Android phones unveiled

LG has added two new Android mobiles to its range, both firmly targeted at the mid-range market that snapped up its best-selling Cookie handsets.

The LG Optimus One runs the latest 2.2 iteration of Google’s Android operating system and offers a 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen display and a 600Mhhz processor.

Pitched at fans of fashion phones, the Optimus Chic also comes with 2.2 straight out of the box, plus a 3.2-inch touchscreen display and a five megapixel camera.

Both handsets offer microSD card support, allowing buyers expandable memory of up to 32GB.

Unveiling the handsets at a press call in South Korea, LG Chief Executive Officer and President of its mobile phones division Scott Ahn forecasted that the Optimus would follow in the footsteps of the Cookie and become “one of the best-selling smartphones in the world”.

LG has been slow to capitalise on the vogue for Android phones, with the LG Optimus currently the sole LG handset running the OS.
