LG Optimus Black Coming Soon To T-Mobile UK

Announced at CES 2011 in Las Vegas, the LG Optimus Black has now been confirmed as coming to Everything Everywhere's T-Mobile, possibly in the first quarter of this year.

T-Mobile has already set up a "coming soon" page asking potential customers to register their interest.

The handset has some pretty unique specifications like a 4-inch energy efficient NOVA display with a WVGA resolution, an ultra-thin body - even thinner than the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc it seems - and a full HD (two megapixel) front facing camera.

There's also a pretty nifty Wi-Fi direct mode that allows the phone to transfer data between mobile devices without the need for a router.

At 109g, it is one of the lightest touchscreen smartphones we come across, that's 20 per cent less than the iPhone even with a bigger 4-inch display.

The Optimus Black will initially run on Android 2.2 with an update to Android 2.3 expected to come later this year.


Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
