You’d be forgiven for overlooking the LG Optimus Black. In recent months the Koreans have shown off the world’s first dual-core phone – the LG Optimus 2X, the world’s first 3D phone – the LG Optimus 3D, and the world’s first 3D tablet - the LG Optimus Pad.
The modest LG Optimus Black doesn’t claim to be the “world’s first” anything, but it still looks rather nice. It has a fairly meaty 4in screen, with a 5MP camera and 2MP on the front, and a 1GHz processor.
Well, according to rumours on Xportsnews, the LG Optimus Black has a little secret, namely a big brother in the form of the LG Optimus Big. As the codename suggests, it’s quite, er, big.
The LG Optimus Big essentially takes the LG Optimus Black and stretches the screen size to 4.3in. Otherwise, the specs remain the same.
A Google translation reads: “They saw the photos netizens "4.3 inches seems to be highly acclaimed," "seems beside the iPhone look smaller," and responded.” Tell me about it.
At the moment the LG Optimus Big is only expected to see the light of day in Korea. Brilliant codename though. I really hope they don’t change it.
