LG Optimus Black officially launched

LG Optimus Black officially launchedWe heard a rumour last week that LG's Optimus Black would soon be launching, and sure enough the Korean firm has given it an official launch, revealing that it will go on sale in the UK this very month.

The Optimus Black, which was announced alongside the more high-profile Optimus 3D back in January, is LG's slimmest ever handset, and looks set to add another option to the high-end smartphone market.

Measuring just 9.2mm thick, the Optimus Black may not quite be the thinnest smartphone around, but it's still impressively slender, an impression only heightened by the large 4in Nova display.

You'll have to be content with a single-core 1GHz processor – no dual-core goodness here – while the 5MP camera round the back is partnered by a 2MP front-facing cam for video calls.

There's 2GB of on-board storage, while the Optimus Black will ship with Android 2.2 Froyo, with Gingerbread to follow in an upgrade.

LG hasn't specified an exact launch date, saying only that the handset will launch in 50 countries – including the UK – “later this month”.
