LG Optimus Black Gets The Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update In Europe And India

Last year, LG launched the Android powered LG Optimus Black in most of the European countries as well as in India. This handset comes with an unique NOVA display, which is designed to be the brightest, clearest and most readable among mobile screens with 700 nits of brightness for optimal visibility. The LG Optimus Black was originally launched with the Android 2.2 (Froyo) Operating System.
