LG has just officially unveiled its Korea-bound Optimus EX smartphone. We first met with the Android-running handset last week, when we got an official photo and detailed specs ahead of teh launch, so there are no surprises now.
The LG Optimus EX runs on Gingerbread and relies on a Tegra 2 chipset with a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU and 1GB of RAM to do the math. The 4" WVGA screen on top will be of the NOVA variety, which promises one of the highest brightness levels on the market.
At the back there's a 5 megapixel camera that does 1080p video recording, while on the front is a VGA camera for video-chatting. The included storage is relatively modest at 8GB, but the microSD slot lets you expand that as much as you like.
The LG SU880 Optimus EX will be available to South Korea's SK Telecom customers, but the release timeframe or pricing haven't been mentioned. LG also hasn't mentioned if they plan on bringing a version of the smartphone to Europe or US.
i was hoping on seeing this phone in Norway before xmas 2011, but i guess i can kiss that goodbye. looks like LG doesn't want me as a customer. i would have bought the white one with gold finish... now i have to look for something else, a little spec...
This one comes with Gingerbread + Tegra2... So what about GB update for Optimus 2X (also tegra2). LG is running out on excuses...
He have see so many powerful smartphones exclusively for Asia and i wish to see something like SGS II HD or LSU880 in Europe before 2012.
