LG’s hard at work delivering on their smartphone-related promises. They’ve already sort of announced two upcoming Android devices (without actually revealing any specs, the price or release date – way to go LG!), the Optimus One and Optimus Chic. The latter has even been spotted in the wild before.
And now it has showed up again. This time, however, it’s joined by its brother, the Optimus One.
The LG Optimus One, also known as P500, will be running Android 2.2 Froyo, will sport 3G and WiFi and a 3MP camera sans flash. It also comes with a 3.5mm headset jack and, judging by the size of that jack relative to the device’s thickness, this may be one very slim phone. It comes with actual buttons for the four standard Android keys.
The LG E720 Optimus Chic does away with the buttons, replacing them with touch-sensitive controls. The camera is 5MP in this case, but still without a flash. The 3.5mm jack is present here too, as apparently are the 3G and WiFi capabilities. As the P500, this will also come with Froyo preinstalled.
Clearly, these devices will hit the streets before year’s end, but when exactly is unknown at this point. Stay tuned though, as I’m sure more (leaked) details are on the way.
