LG Optimus Black gets priced in the Philippines, lands next week
The LG Optimus Black is about to become available it seems, after a delay. First we heard that the smartphone will be in stores in the UK next week, and now it’s the Philippines’ turn. According to YugaTech, the Optimus Black will also hit the Philippines next week, for an asking price of Php 19,990 (that’s approximately $465 or EUR 320). Clearly not a bad price, and you’re certainly getting a lot of oomph for it.
The LG Optimus Black has a TI 1 GHz processor, a 4-inch 480×800 capacitive touchscreen, 2 GB of internal storage space, 512 MB of RAM, microSD card slot, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio, a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 1500 mAh battery. The Optimus Black runs Android 2.2 Froyo with LG’s Optimus UI 2.0 on top.
One of the main attractions here is the slimness of this handset – at 9.2 mm, only two other smartphones are thinner than it at this point, and both of those (the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc) are in very different price ranges. In fact, for a midrange device, the Optimus Black will certainly prove quite interesting for the fashion-conscious crowd.
