Back in April of this year, LG launched the Android-powered LG Optimus. Bearing “Optimal performance for first time smartphone users” as its slogan, it was built for the lower-end of the smartphone market — it was fancy, but not too fancy. Kind of a disappointing use of the “Optimus” name — but hey, it’s their trademark.
Come 6 o’clock tomorrow evening in Seoul, LG will be launching what they call “the next generation of LG Optimus smartphones”. How mysterious! Alas, LG’s not too good at keeping secrets; hop after the jump to find out what they’ll be revealing.
As far as we can tell, all this hub-bub is about the LG Optimus One and the LG Optimus Chic — two handsets which they’ve been showing off in some form or another since July of this year.
From that, it seems that the Optimus Chic will continue the original Optimus’ lower-end focus. The One’s specs are a bit harder to lock down, though we’re told to expect specs that are ever so slightly lower than those of the chic; the camera purportedly comes in at 3 megapixels rather than 5, for example.
