LG announces first AMOLED phone


Possibly for the budget market

South Korean electronics giant LG has unveiled its first ever AMOLED based mobile phone in the Optimus Sol, which is due to arrive mid-September this year.

Lucky Goldstar’s Optimus Sol is a distinct departure for the brown and white goods company, who has always opted for the lesser quality LCD screen – even in the world’s first dual-core ‘Optimus 2X’ phone, announced at the tail-end of 2010.

The LG Optimus Sol gains its name for the highly clear display, which makes its content easy to see and in bright and sunny conditions too.

Optimus Sol will arrive with a 3.8-inch WVGA ‘Ultra’ AMOLED touch screen display, whilst being powered by a 1GHz processor, with a 5 megapixel camera that unfortunately doesn’t offer HD video recording – despite running from the Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS.

The handset is only 9.8mm thick, where the display boasts a two-fold advanced reflection rate compared to standard AMOLED displays which reduces image quality degradation.

President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications, Dr. Jong-seok Park has stated – “The Optimus Sol stands out from its competitors as the most affordable 1 GHz Android smartphone with an AMOLED display”.

One Mobile Ring believes the Optimus Sol will be aimed as a cost effective mobile phone, on pay as you go deals and low end tariffs.
