LG unveiled its new smartphones, the LG Optimus Black phone at CES. The phone is said to be the thinnest smartphone in the world at just 9.2mm. The phone is not the world’s first in only this, but also, its the world’s first smartphone to sport a 2MP front facing camera, and the first smartphone to use Wi-Fi Direct.
The phone has a 4” 700-nit NOVA display which is said to be better than other technologies, such as the Super AMOLED display. The NOVA display is said to be “the brightest, clearest and most readable among mobile screens.” Also, it is said that the display on the Optimus Black will draw half as much power that a conventional LCD display would, indoors, and also, the Super AMOLED display consumes double the power that the NOVA consumes.
The device uses LG’s Optimus UI 2.0, Gesture UI and runs on Android 2.2, or Froyo. The phone is capable of getting upgraded to Gingerbread, or Android 2.3. The phone will ship with a 1500 mAh battery, which is big, and will weigh around 109g. LG will make the phone available to its customers in the first half of 2011. I’m expecting the second quarter though.
