LG Electronics today announced the LG Optimus Black. Featuring a bright 4" so called NOVA display, the Optimus Black is said to be the world's slimmest smartphone. The LG Optimus Black's NOVA display is designed to be the brightest, clearest and most readable among mobile screens. While LG hasn't unveiled too many technical details, it's said that the Optimus Black adopts the world's first 2 megapixel front-facing camera, allowing users to utilize video telephony functions of higher quality after upgrading to Android's Gingerbread. However, initially the LG Optimus Black will be shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo only with an expected later Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade.

The NOVA technology is said to enables users to maintain visibility whether indoors or outdoors under strong sunlight. In addition to greater luminosity, the NOVA display on LG Optimus Black also radically reduces power consumption by 50 percent during general indoor use compared to a conventional LCD. Similarly, AMOLED consumes twice as much power as NOVA to display a full white screen, the most frequently used color scheme for web browsing.

The LG Optimus Black also offers a set of smarter features designed for easy and faster access to important apps and content. Optimus UI 2.0 lets users directly access messages, emails and missed calls from the locked screen with just one single finger tap. The Gesture UI offers more intuitive commands, including lifting, shaking and tapping, for taking calls, entering camera mode, or enjoying music. LG Optimus Black also introduces the world's first WiFi Direct for quick and high-quality data transfer between mobile devices.

The LG Optimus Black will be rolled out globally in the first half of 2011. A price wasn't given today.

Cheers ~ Arne
