LG Optimus Sol Press Images Revealed

August 22, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The LG Optimus Sol (or the LG Victor E730 as it’s known in the back circles) has been seen running wild in press shots. The successor to the Optimus One, it has an air of confidence in hitting it high with the customers.

Though the polished exterior of the Sol doesn’t pack any stunning specifications, the list does offer some pretty good mid-range features. The Android handset is said to hold a mid- to high-mid-end Gingerbread-power along with a single-core 1GHz processor under the cover.

LG showcases its first AMOLED display, at a screen size of 3.8-inches, with the Optimus Sol. Other features spotted are a dual five-megapixel rear camera and VGA front shooter, and the usual Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The phone is named after the sun (Sol is Spanish for sun) which refers to its display characteristic of allowing the user to read in direct sunlight (courtesy of its “Ultra AMOLED” display) as well as offering less image quality degradation. LG has also equipped the device with a new power management technique called as the “Dark UI”.

The Dark UI effectively uses less white light when the phone is kept idle, by which the battery life could be extended by a margin of 20 to 30 percent. The 9.8mm thick handset is scheduled for a European entrance by the beginning of mid-September, which will be followed by Central and South-American releases.

We don’t have specific dates for the US markets nor the price tag, but we do know that it will come in black, titan and white color options.
