A new Android phone by LG, the LG Optimus Pro has been spotted in Italy.
It seems to be inspired by the Motorola Droid Pro, and comes with a QWERTY keyboard and a 2.8 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels.
It will be powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will sport a 600 MHz or 800 MHz processor, like most other budget smartphones. It also has internal storage of 150 MB and comes with a 3.15 MP camera. It also offers Wi-Fi and GPS, and comes with a 1500 mAh battery.
The specifications are quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy Pro while the design resembles the Motorola Droid Pro. It seems to have followed the industry naming convention for QWERTY candybar Android devices by appending a ‘Pro’ to its name.
It will be positioned as a budget Android device, and is aimed at Blackberry users who cannot do without a physical QWERTY keyboard. It has already been launched in Italy and is priced at â‚¬179.
