“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.

LG Optimus Sol Features Ultra AMOLED, 30% Longer Battery Life

LG confirmed their newest smartphone called Optimus Sol which offers 30% longer battery life.

Last Sunday, LG confirmed its Optimus Sol — an Android 2.3 handset which emphasizes its outdoor credentials with what it calls an Ultra AMOLED display. It is similar to the Samsung’s super AMOLED. The 3.8-inch screen is twice as reflective of its light and is much more visible outside than usual AMOLED, which tends to wash out in sunlight.

Encouraging the outdoor use is a new power control system that LG predicted to get about 20 to 30% more battery life . As insurance, the phone has an uncommonly large 1,500mAh battery. Optimus Sol features a single-core, second generation 1GHz Snapdragon processor; 512MB of RAM and a rear 5 megapixel camera with autofocus but no flash. LG skins the phone with its usual interface layer and supplies a 2GB microSD card.

The Optimus Sol is set to be released in mid-September for Europe. Central and South America will get it next. The current version doesn’t support North American 3G bands, although LG is known to sometimes adapt its phones later.
