LG has launched many would-be successors to the hugely popular Optimus One over the past few months. So many, in fact, that we thought we’d never see an Optimus Two. And while the Optimus 2 isn’t an Optimus Two, it’s close enough.
Don’t expect much, though. This isn’t that big of an update compared to its predecessor. It’s also got CDMA support, so at least for now it’s off limits for most of the world. However, that means it will probably be launched by a few CDMA carriers in the US (most well known of which are Verizon and Sprint). In fact, CellCom already lists the LG Optimus 2 for $0.95 with a new two-year contract.
The LG Optimus 2 was first spotted at LG’s website, sitting calmly and extolling its virtues – picture gallery included. As you can see, its design is nothing to write home about. And neither are the specs.
Speaking of which, the LG Optimus 2 has an 800 MHz processor, a 3.2-inch 320×480 touchscreen, a 3.2 MP autofocus camera with video capture support, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 1,500 mAh battery, 179 MB of built-in storage space, and microSD card support. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
