The LG Optimus Black will make its international debut in Europe later this month, according to LG.
Following unveilings at the Consumer Electronics Show and the Mobile World Congress, the LG Optimus Black will be available globally across six continents beginning in Europe before heading to North America and Asia.
"For smartphone users who appreciate both style and substance, the LG Optimus Black offers beauty, performance and mobility in one smart package," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "LG Optimus Black is a significant addition to our global Optimus portfolio and we think it'll prove to be one of our most popular phones."
Introducing LG's new NOVA display technology, the LG Optimus Black provides brightness and clarity. While it offers higher levels of brightness and blacks and whites, it also reduces power consumption by 50 percent during general indoor use compared to conventional LCDs.
The sleek design of the phone is accentuated by the flush finish of the 4-inch display to offer an undisrupted surface. This is complemented by the slim 9.2mm body and its weight of only 109g.
The black version of LG Optimus Black will be available first followed by white and pink versions which will be introduced next month.
