LG Announces New AMOLED Screens And Displays Unlocked The first one to use them
About a month ago we told you about LG smartphones Who would soon land on the store shelves. Now we win For official acquaintance With one of them - E730 (bearing the code name 'Victor'), or LG Optimus Sol in its official and more elegant name.
This is a smartphone designed for the mid-range market, which will offer an Ultra AMOLED screen (more on that below) in a size of 3.8 inches and a resolution of 800 × 480, MSM8225 chip From Qualcomm With one Scorpion core at 1GHz speed and an Adreno 205 graphics core, memory RAM Volume 512MB, volume storage Internal 2GB (of which 150MB only available to the user itself), card expansion slot microSD, A 5 megapixel camera behind and a VGA camera (0.3 megapixel) preview.
Optimus Sol will be based on a system Android In Gingerbread version, the Optimus UI 2.0 interface will be installed, offering 3G connectivity, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, DLNA support and Wi-Fi Direct, navigation GPS And more.
Externally, the Optimus Sol is difficult to impress and looks quite characterless, but offers a rather thin profile of 9.8 millimeters (the weight of the device is not specified). battery 1500mAh will be responsible for providing the juice to the device.
The Optimus Sol is expected to go on sale across Europe in mid-September, and we expect to find out the price of the device soon, so we can try and evaluate its chances against the "heavy guns" on the market.
Back to the Ultra AMOLED screen - this is it In a new generation of screens Manufactured by LG itself, which promises to perform significantly better under direct sunlight, richer colors and better image quality. It is not clear what screen LG compared the Ultra AMOLED to these statements, but we definitely want to see how it will compete with the Super AMOLED Plus screens On the handsets of Samsung.
B-LG Add to that the unique interface of the device, 'Dark UI', can save about 20 to 30 percent of battery life - our estimate is that it is an interface based on as much black color as possible, since the screens areAMOLED Are able to completely turn off the LEDs that make up them, and display true black color without consuming any power at all.
We are very curious to see what the Ultra AMOLED screens have to offer, but it is very possible that these screens will not stay with us much longer, since at LG They declared A few weeks ago about the intention to abandon the production of small AMOLED screens, and concentrate on manufacturing large panels designed for televisions OLED, Which is another thing we are definitely curious to see.
Here's a video that offers a closer look at the Optimus Sol. Although the video is in German, it still allows you to get an idea of the look of your device, and the performance of the new screen in direct sunlight. The truth? Not bad at all.
