LG Optimus Big shows off its 4.3-inch NOVA display while packing a 1Ghz dual-core CPU

Those Android-loving Koreans just got one more reason to fall in love all over again. LG just announced the availability of the LG Optimus Big for the Korean market. The phone seems to be a close cousin of the LG Optimus Black, borrowing the same NOVA display. The display is able to show 700 nits of brightness but it also “reduces power consumption by 50 percent during general indoor use compared to a conventional LCD” If that’s not enough to make you want this phone, maybe knowing that it also features WiFi-Direct will convince you. Think of WiFi-Direct as Bluetooth on steroids allowing you to transfer data wirelessly at blazing speeds. Here’s a list of everything this beast of a phone has:

  • Android 2.2 Froyo (Gingerbread update is coming soon)
  • 4.3-inch NOVA display
  • 1 Ghz Dual-core CPU
  • WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 3.0, HDMI port
  • 5 MP camera, and front-facing camera
  • 16GB of bult-in storage
  • 1500 mAh Battery

The phone will be available in Korea starting April 28th, but we don’t know when or if it will be hitting the states. I guess we’ll have to make do with just those pictures for now.
