LG Optimus Black hits Europe this month

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on May 8th, 2011

LG had already said that we can expect the ultra-slim Optimus Black handset globally in the first half of this year, and keeping to their word, at least one continent will be getting the device during that time period. The 9.2mm thin smartphone with it’s 700 nit NOVA display will hit Europe this month.

North America and Asia will come sometime after, we just don’t know when. Looks like LG will be introducing white and pink versions of the phone in June as well. What do you think? Are you waiting for this one?

LG Genesis arriving soon on US Cellular

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2011

U.S. Cellular would like to keep this a secret, but that’s not gonna happen. It is out of the bag. They have an Android-based LG handset coming soon. A clam-shell, dual-screen Android. AndroidCentral slipped all of the details.

You can expect Android 2.2, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 430MB internal memory/8GB microSD, and 5-megapixel camera. The front/external display is 3.5-inches (480×800) while the internal is just 3.2-inches (480×800). It’s a unique take on a familiar form factor and that should be the appeal. Price will likely be about $250 with a two-year agreement and $450 outright.

These ultra-slim notebooks deliver style without sacrificing performance. The P430 and P530 feature a 14-inch and 15.6-inch LED LCD screen, a thickness of 4.5mm and 4.7mm.

LG Revolution Press Shot Spotted

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on May 1st, 2011

The latest shots of the LG Revolution show a date of May 25, 2011, so we can surmise that Verizon will release it on that day. That is not a new strategy, HTC and Samsung have also used launch or release dates in press image screenshots, and LG has done it before as well. Then again, you never know. Keep your fingers crossed.

The Revolution would be either the second or third 4G LTE phone to be released. The Thunderbolt is already out, the Droid Charge has been delayed and the Droid Bionic has been pushed back too. The Revolution is a single-core device with WVGA resolution, which might make it less attractive to some, but it does include Netflix for Android which is a bonus.

Features include a dual-core 1GHz processor, 4.3 inch WVGA display, 5-megapixel autofocus camera, and Android 2.2 OS, which is likely upgradable to Gingerbread. No word yet on if we can expect this device in the US yet.

The Xnote P210 series of notebooks are pretty popular in Korea. And so the company has decided to cash in on that popularity by introducing the laptop in some new pastel and pink colors.

Easter is the perfect time for these colors anyway. Female customers will be all over these. We don’t have any info on pricing and technical specs right now, but if these models do well, they may start showing up elsewhere too.

LG Optimus 2X to get Gingerbread in mid-2011

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2011

LG has said that Gingerbread will be forthcoming for its dual-core Optimus 2X Android handset, but aside from that they have been pretty quiet on the issue. Now we have word from LG’s Danish support site that the P990 (aka the 2X) will be updated to Android 2.3 “in June-July 2011.”

That’s later than we were all hoping for, but still, better late than never. Though it should be noted that LG has a history of inconsistency when it comes to software roadmaps, so we will see if they hold to that timeframe.

LG readying Optimus Big with 4.3-inch Nova display

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2011

Some leaked images and specs of an upcoming LG handset have been leaked. The handset will feature the same Nova display as the current Optimus Black, but at a larger 4.3 inches. That’s why the phone is being called the LG Optimus Big.

It’s expected to launch at Korea’s U+ provider in April. Some of the leaked specs include a 1GHz single-core CPU and a T-DMB TV tuner, which allows watching over-the-air TV broadcasts. That last feature insures that the handset won’t be coming to other markets. At least not without some major changes.
