LG Optimus Black

Last updated: Jan 5th, 2011.

The LG Optimus Black aims to thrill with its super-sleek stylings and ultra-bright display. The NOVA technology used in the 4.0-inch IPS LCD screen provides class-leading brightness and brilliant color reprooduction. A 9.2mm thickness makes the Optimus Black one of the thinnest smartphones on the market. A 1GHz chip provided by Texas Instruments powers the handset, which also features a 5MP rear and 2MP front-facing camera.

The Optimus Black was announced as part of a lineup featuring the Optimus 3D and Optimus Pad, and looks to please users who are fans of both form and function.
