LG, one of the second-tier players in the smartphone arena, finally seems to have arrived. It has been making waves lately, thanks to its new Android smartphones and tablets which grabbed a major part of the limelight at CES and MWC 2011, despite the presence of HTC, Samsung, Motorola and Sony Ericsson.
It is finally one of the most popular Android manufacturers with budget phones like the Optimus One. The Optimus 2X and the Optimus 3D were the first dual core and the first 3D phones, and LG was also one of the first to announce a Honeycomb tablet – the LG G-Slate.
Now LG is working on something “big”. After the LG Optimus 3D, LG is planning to launch another Android smartphone with a 4.3 inch display – the LG Optimus Big. It was leaked just today, and comes with a 4.3 inch Nova display. It will be launched in Korea next month, and will have a 1 GHz processor and a T-DMB TV tuner. The Nova display is the brightest display among all mobile phones. We don’t know whether the Optimus Big will be launched worldwide, or the exact hardware specs, but more details should be out soon. It will likely run Android 2.3 Gingerbread with LG’s custom UI.
