The LG Optimus Black will go on sale by the end of the May, it has been confirmed, adding to the welter of high-end Android handsets competing for your smartphone buck.
LG’s new smartie will be the first to feature its NOVA display which it claims is brighter and crisper than standard TFT screens and, in keeping with this year’s big trend in flagship handsets, will feature a dual core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor to keep things running smoothly.
Also on board the super slim handset (it comes in at just 122 x 64 x 9.2mm) is a five-megapixel rear-mounted snapper and a secondary front-facing two-megapixel camera for video calling.
Less impressive, however, is that the Optimus Black will run the ageing 2.2 version of Android (AKA Froyo) out of the box rather than the up to the minute Gingerbread edition. But we’re assured that an update to the latest and greatest iteration of the OS will be along soon.
LG is also planning pink and white colour options for the handset, both of which are set to land in Blighty during June.
