LG announces availability of new Optimus Sol smartphone

Have you had enough of LG's Optimus One, Optimus 2X, Optimus Black and Optimus 3D smartphones that have been making headlines all over the Internet in recent months? Well, the good news is that the Korean electronics company has got yet another Optimus-branded smartphone up its sleeves which it reportedly plans to release for sale next year in various parts of the world, and it is called the LG Optimus Sol. Kind of makes you wonder if the Optimus Sol will have the soul of a premium smartphone befitting the Optimus product lineup, no?

Looking for a new Android-powered smartphone from a reputable Korean electronics company but don't want to get a Samsung Galaxy S II? Well, you are in luck, for LG Electronics has announced the availability of its upcoming smartphone, the LG Optimus Sol, which, from the looks of it, is designed to cater to consumers who desire an ultra-slim smartphone that does not compromise on performance in any way.

According to the machine translation of LG's latest announcement, it appears that the upcoming LG Optimus Sol smartphone, which is slated for a release in various parts of the world early next year, will sport what the company calls an Ultra AMOLED display that is reportedly more advanced than a typical AMOLED display. LG has claimed that the 3.8-inch Ultra AMOLED display is not only capable of consuming lesser energy than a standard AMOLED screen that can translate to up to a 30% increase in battery life, but also provide better visibility under bright lighting conditions.

Specifications-wise, LG has confirmed that the 9.8mm-slim Optimus Sol will be powered by a 1GHz processor, while the preloaded Android operating system will feature a new Optimus UI 2.0 user interface which is reportedly capable of further reducing energy consumption by minimizing the use of white in its colour scheme. Last but definitely not least, the Optimus Sol will ship with support for a variety of standard features such as support for DLNA and WiFi Direct.

No information about the Optimus Sol's pricing has been released by LG at this point of time.
