LG Optimus Sol

LG this evening announced the Optimus Sol (aka the LG -E730). And this things packed with a number of standout features. First off, it's running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, as well it should. It's boasting a 3.8-inch "Ultra AMOLED" display at 480x800 resolution, which LG says "has a two-fold advanced reflection rate compared to standard AMOLED displays," leading to better clarity outdoors, and a reduction in image quality degradation.

It's also got a new power-management system, which LG says will boost battery life by 20 percent to 30 percent.

Other specs of note:

  • Qualcomm MSM8255 processor at 1GHz
  • Network: Quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900), dual-band UMTS (900/2100)
  • RAM: 512MB
  • ROM: 2GB
  • Program memory: 150MB internal
  • External memory: 2GB microSD card included
  • Rear camera: 5MP with autofocus
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Wifi 802.11 b/g/n
  • aGPS
  • DLNA
  • Dimensions: 122.5 x 62.5 x 9.8 mm
  • Battery: 1,500 mAh

The Optimus Sol will be available in Europe in mid-September, followed by Central and South America. It'll be available in black, titan and white, subject to regional release.

Why don't you try reading the restof the paragraph.

there is nothing high end about the phone except maybe that "ultra" amoled screen.

is it pentile or not? that is the question!

Not bad I agree it is mid range phone only spec I don't like the 150mb for apps. Too me these phones can't get enough memory.

looks like galaxy s. removed big button for capacitive home button then menu on left back on right.. even no flash like it samsung should sue....lol

So much wasted space on that device. If it's gonna have a small screen, at least make the device small. There's enough space for at least a 4.1 inch screen, including the capacitive buttons.

Yeah I was just gonna say the same in reference to the aval space surrounding the screen. Even a midrange phone should include a flash. As far as the search button I've only used it once and that was because I tapped it by accident.

Looks like an iphone.... Crap i think jobs heard me. Lg better be ready to get lawsuits for it kinda looking like an iphone.
