Remember the LG Optimus Black? The super-thin handset announced at CES that stole the iPhone 4′s ‘thinnest smartphone’ crown? Well, we wouldn’t blame you if it has slipped off your radar considering that the Korean firm has also unveiled the world’s first dual-core smartphone, and the world’s first 3D smartphone and tablet, since 2011 kicked off.
However, it could be that the Optimus Black is about to re-establish itself in the concious of mobile industry watchers via a handset codenamed the LG Optimus Big, a 4.3-inch alternative to the 4-inch Optimus Black. The prospective handset comes sporting LG’s shiny new NOVA display technology, something that which the Optimus Black has been blessed with, and according to the manufacturer, offers the brightest, clearest and most readable mobile screen around with 700 nits of brightness.
Aside from the display technology, all we know about the Optimus Big in the way of specs is that it has a 1GHz single-core processor. Sources say the new LG smartphone is only set to be released in Korea, but if you fancy getting familiar with some LG NOVA display goodness, the LG Optimus Black should be arriving in the UK sometime in Q2.
