LG announces the Optimus Q2, confirms upcoming HD Android smartphone

LG has officially introduced a new QWERTY Android handset: the LG Optimus Q2. Coming as the successor to the first Optimus Q (announced in 2010 and only released in South Korea), the Optimus Q2 runs Android Gingerbread, and is one of the thinnest QWERTY sliders ever (12.4mm).

The new smartphone features a bright 4 inch WVGA IPS display, 1.2GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra processor, 5MP rear camera, and a VGA front-facing camera.

The Optimus Q2 will be launched next week in Korea via LG U+ (the country’s third largest mobile carrier). For the moment, there’s no word on the handset’s price, and neither on a possible release outside Korea.

In other LG news, the company has confirmed that it would bring an “HD Android smartphone” to the market. According to this press release, the unnamed HD phone will be the first Android device to come with Capcom’s Street Fighter IV game pre-installed. LG suggests that the handset will be out sometime before the end of the year. No other details were given, but the HD smartphone is probably the 4.5 inch LU6200 seen last week. We’ll bring more info as soon as we get it.
