LG has officially unveiled the LG Optimus Sol, also called E730, which is named after the Spanish word for sun. The phone has been given this name for a purpose – it comes with 3.8-inch WVGA (Wide Video Graphics Array) “Ultra AMOLED” (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display, which the users would be easily able to view in direct sunlight as well.
The phone uses 1 GHz central processing unit (CPU), a five megapixel camera, Android Gingerbread and is 9.8 mm thick. The LG Optimus Sol would be released in Europe by mid-September and then would be launched in Central and South America. It would be available in titan, black and white colours.
“The Optimus Sol stands out from its competitors as the most affordable 1 GHz Android smartphone with an AMOLED display,” said Dr Jong-seok Park, president and chief executive officer, LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “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.”
The LG Optimus Sol has a different kind of power management system which improves the battery life of the device by about 20-30 per cent. When users choose to use the darker user interface, it improves the battery life of the phone since no white light is being produced. The phone also provides the WiFi Direct and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) connectivity options.
