The LG Optimus One has been a great device for many entry-level Android users. It is by no means a super phone, but its availability (most carriers have it) and low price have taken this little guy very far. Technology moves forward, though. This guy is getting quite old, and a successor is definitely necessary. LG has been working on it, and the LG Optimus 2 has finally reached the official LG website.
LG really had this one very well hidden, right? But don’t start getting excited. This is yet another entry-level device, and if you own an Optimus One device (or any other low-end smartphone), you will probably want to upgrade to something better.
LG Optimus 2 Specifications
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 800 MHz processor
- 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen (HVGA – 320x480p)
- 3.2 MP Autofocus Camera and Camcorder
- 179 MB of internal storage (microSD upgrade-able by 32 GB, 2 GB microSD included)
- Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR
Not the device of your dreams, but definitely a great option for smartphone first-timers. The entry-level market is very important, and it is good to see LG trying to keep it alive. Expect this little guy to hit stores soon with a very affordable price-tag. We’re pretty sure we’ll be seeing this at CES, so stay tuned for more details.
What do you guys say? Would you rather have seen the LG Optimus 2 become a super-phone? Who is thinking of getting one of these? Maybe for one of your kids?
