What we didn’t know is that LG plans to introduce the Optimus Black in North America, too – sometime after the European launch. The South Korean company didn’t say which North American carrier will offer the new handset. However, it’s likely that at least one in the US and one in Canada will do it.
The Optimus Black is really slim and light (9.2mm, 109 grams). It runs Android 2.2 Froyo – upgradeable to Android 2.3 – and features a 4 inch WVGA Nova display which “provides optimal brightness and clarity that allows for enhanced readability.” It also comes with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus rear camera, 720p video recording, 2MP front-facing camera, 512MB RAM, 1GHz processor, 2GB of on-board memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 32GB).
Starting next month, pink and white versions of the Optimus Black will be available. I wonder if their names will be changed to Optimus White and Optimus Pink (most probably not).
The LG Optimus Black should cost around €350 – more or less, depending on the country you buy it from.
