LG to make an Optimus series announcement in India on November 18

16 Nov

We have been invited to an LG press conference in India on November 18 that will witness the launch of the Optimus series. Now what could this announcement be about – the Optimus One Android smartphone or LG’s Windows Phone 7 smartphones that also go with the Optimus branding?

Considering that Microsoft has already confirmed to us that Windows Phone 7 devices will be launched in India some time in 2011, in all likelihood Thursday’s announcement could be about the Optimus One. LG says that it has worked closely with Google to develop the Optimus One (the name is inspired by the Nexus One) and it runs on Froyo Android 2.2. It features a 3.2-inch WVGA (320X480 pixels) touchscreen, a 1,500 mAh battery and a 600 MHz processor. Its 3.15 MP camera comes with face tracking and smile shot features.

Word on the street is that the Optimus One will be priced at Rs 13,000. Well, we will be reporting live from the event so don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @cellpassion.

LG's Optimus One and Optimus Chic to hit India by the year end, specs revealed!

15 Sep

LG has launched its much talked about duo of Android based smartphones – LG Optimus One and LG Optimus Chic in London which first showed up in Korea about two months ago. The smartphones are based on Android 2.2 aka Froyo and are expected to hit the India shores by the year end. ‘Optimus’ in Latin means ‘best’, so we guess, these are the best smartphones in LG’s bag, atleast for now.

The LG Optimus One  comes with a 3.2 inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen display, 3.0 MP camera, 600Mhz processor, 170 MB of internal memory. A 2GB microSD card comes bundled along with its purchase, and fret not, the memory can be further upgraded to 32 GB. It has Wi-Fi connectivity, FM radio, GPS and Bluetooth.

The LG Optimus Chic, as the name suggests, flaunts its curvy shape, with a 3.2 inch touchscreen display, 600Mhz processor, 150 MB of onboard memory. It sports a 5.0MP snapper and features LG’s Air Sync to wirelessly transfer photos, contacts and other information with computer and cloud database.

Now that LG has satiated us with the much-needed specs of these smartphones, we’d say our wait will only end when LG officially spills the beans on pricing of this duo!
