LG’s rivals are pulling out all the stops as we head towards Jesus’ birthday. Samsung, HTC and even Motorola (who was expecting that?) have revealed some right beauties in the past few weeks.
Meanwhile, LG’s Android portfolio is looking decidedly lackluster, with the Optimus 2X and Optimus 3D still heading the pack. But what’s this new guy appearing from out of the smartphone mist?
An anonymous source has furnished GSMArena with a decidedly dodgy-looking picture of the supposed LG Optimus U1. That’s a truly fantastic pic. We’re not sure if that’s fog or some sort of milky residue.
All we’re told about this LG Optimus U1 is that it’ll be supermodel thin, and – more interestingly – that it’ll run Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). A few days ago we heard that the LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus 3D and LG Optimus Black would get – wait for it – Gingerbread (Android 2.3). Eek.
As GSMArena points out, LG recently renamed its network in Korea to U+, so this LG Optimus U1 could be some sort of Korea-only tie-in. Hmm. Stay tuned.
