LG lifts the lid on Optimus Sol

LG lifts the lid on Optimus SolWoah, it’s clearly new phone day. We’ve already heard from Sony Ericsson this morning, and now we’ve got Lucky Goldstar detailing its latest Android effort.

This latest bad boy from the South Koreans is called the LG Optimus Sol, and it’s all about the display, baby.

The blurb on the LG Blog is very much focused on the LG Optimus Sol’s 3.8in WVGA Ultra AMOLED display, which apparently offers high clarity even in direct sunlight.

“The Optimus Sol stands out from its competitors as the most affordable 1 GHz Android smartphone with an AMOLED display,” reckons Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile.

“By introducing a no-nonsense phone that boasts one of the best displays on the market, we think we have a real winner for consumers looking for a subtle but visually stunning phone.”

What else do we have? A thickness of 9.8mm, Flash 10.1 support, a 5MP camera, and “an enhanced idle-based power management system that boosts battery life by 20 to 30 percent”. You can check out the full LG Optimus Sol spec sheet right here.

Oh, and unlike the LG Optimus 2X and LG Optimus 3D, the LG Optimus Sol will ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

The LG Optimus Sol is scheduled to arrive in Europe in mid-September. Hey, that’s only a few weeks away.
