Video: LG Optimus Pro, LG Optimus Net get pat-down treatment on camera

3 years ago 5

It hasn’t been more than 24 hours since we first caught a glimpse of the LG Optimus Pro, but the device is back in front of the camera again. This time the phone, along with the LG Optimus Net, appear on official videos from LG Italy.

As you know already, the Optimus Pro is an affordable, business-ready Android phone with a portrait QWERTY keyboard. The phone is meant for those who love a portrait hardware keyboard, but don’t want to spend a lot of money (if any) on a new phone. As we mentioned yesterday, there are lot of Blackberry fans that fit this description. And that’s the market this phone is aiming for.

There’s nothing new to know about the LG Optimus Pro, but in case you want to know, here’s what the phone has to offer:

  • Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread
  • 2.8-inch QVGA screen
  • 800 MHz processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 150 MB of free internal memory
  • 3 MP rear-facing camera
  • 1500 mAh battery

Again, nothing too exciting. But that’s still an improvement over many Blackberries phones. Without much further ado, here’s the LG Optimus Pro getting man-handled by an Italian guy.

Then there’s the LG Optimus Net. This phone is supposed to be the successor to the popular LG Optimus One device. As you might know, the LG Optimus One is the equivalent of the Samsung Galaxy S, but for affordable Android phones. The device is available from almost every carrier in the US. On Verizon, it’s called the LG Vortex, on T-Mobile it;s the Optimus T, on Sprint it’s the Optimus S. You get the idea.

The Optimus Net is not much different from the Optimus One, but it does improve upon its older brother in two key places:  processor and Android version. The Optimus Net is packing an 800MHz processor, compared to the Optimus One’s 600MHz CPU. It’ll also launch with Android 2.3.3 preloaded, whereas the Optimus One is still running Froyo. Aside from those two differences, the Optimus Net is almost similar to the Optimus One on every other specification, which include:

  • 3.2-inch display with a 320×480 pixel resolution
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 150 MB of internal memory
  • 3 MP rear-facing camera
  • 1500mAh battery
  • DLNA support

You can expect the LG Optimus Net and Optimus Pro to arrive in the US sooner rather than later. And as LG did with the Optimus One, the Optimus Net will probably be available from every major carrier. So if you can’t wait to get your hands on a free, snappy and awesome little Android phone, you won’t have to wait much longer. But while you wait, you can watch the Optimus Net in action on the video below.
