LG LU6200 is Now Optimus LTE

Written on September 20, 2011 by Lulu

LG LU6200 was seen live by Korea's Daum, and it was alleged to be re-labeled as Optimus LTE.

LG’s LU6200 4G phone was seen live by Korea’s Daum with more details regarding the said device. Its centerpiece will still be the 4.5-inch, 720p display; but it also carry a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon. LU6200 4G phone is now also believed to have a more elegant “Optimus LTE” title for now.

As shown, the hardware is still using Android 2.3.5 and may arrive that way at first. However, a leak claimed that the Ice Cream Sandwich will be an option later. The design of the said device will flesh out by an eight-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera.

A release could come as soon as early October, even though SK Telecom’s U+ services have been pushed back and could affect the Optimus LTE’s arrival as well. Its network choice makes it a strong candidate for US carriers looking to add LTE phones. Verizon could be shortlisted, given its launch of the LG Revolution in spring.

LG Optimus Q2 Show Off its Features

Written on September 19, 2011 by Lulu

LG's Optimus Q2 is slated to be released next week with its several new features and designs.

LG launched the second wave of their high-end messaging smartphones on late Sunday. The said company unleashed the Optimus Q2 with its new design that centers on a considerably larger four-inch, IPS-based LCD screen with a very bright 700-nit output.

The Android 2.3 hardware is also one of the first smartphones in the field with a newly upgraded 1.2GHz Tegra 2, and should surpass the performance of the T-Mobile G2X — also known as Optimus 2X.

The device’s design is intended to evade some of the bulk of other slider phones, while improving on the comfort of its predecessor. LG claimed that the Q2 is almost a tenth of an inch thinner than its competitors, and 0.35 ounces lighter than its ancestor. It has a strictly average five-megapixel back camera and a VGA front camera, but it included Wi-Fi Direct for faster sharing when devices support it.

The launch of the Optimus Q2 is scheduled next week for Europe. Other networks haven’t been detailed, even though it might ship in on Sprint as just the Q.

This allows players to view their own in-game perspective in full screen. However, each gamer has to settle with a 2D image.

According to LG, players can toggle between the split-screen view or Dual Play. The said 3D TV is also compatible with LG’s Cinema 3D TVs, including the upcoming LW980.

LG Optimus Sol Wrap-up: Specs, Price, Availability

Written on August 28, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

“The Optimus Sol stands out from its competitors as the most affordable 1GHz Android smartphone with an AMOLED display." --- Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO of LG

Once again, LG Electronics is set to release the latest addition to its Optimus smartphone series. The LG E720 Optimus Sol, formerly named as “Victor”, is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread-based handset that comes with a 3.8″ Ultra AMOLED display and 9.8mm thickness, making it one of the slimmest phones to hit the store shelves this year.

The manufacturer named it as “Sol” (Spanish term for “Sun”) not because it has something to do with a solar-powered phone, but because it has an AMOLED display which enables users to read the screen’s texts easily even under bright and sunny settings. Its display feature is capable of reducing the image quality degradation, and also brings out a two-fold advanced reflection rate. Another thing that LG Optimus Sol is heavily promoting is its new power saving technique, which decreases the use of white light for a longer battery life.
