By 07:34 Sat, 10 Jul 2021 Comments

Dr. Skott Ahn, LG CEO, just introduced LG's latest Optimus One and Optimus Chic smartphones in an interactive digital press conference held online. The Optimus One is designed to be "your first smartphone", but it should cater for the experienced smartphone user as well.

You've probably already read some bits about Optimus One (LG P500) and Optimus Chic (LG E720). These are the phones that will hopefully bring LG back on the smartphone market map. LG has already hinted of their existence and even provided a couple of photos, but that was pretty much all.

However, as of today, we now have their full tech specs plus some recent juicy images.

Both Optimus One and Chic run on the latest Android Operating System (OS) v2.2 Froyo and feature 3.2-inch capacitive HVideo Graphics Array (VGA) TFT touchscreens, 600 Mega Hertz (MHz) processors and all-round connectivity package – 3G with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS support and digital compass, 3.5mm audio jack and Frequency Modulation (FM) radio. A 2GB microSD card is included on both retail packages.

LG Optimus One sports a 3.2 megapixel autofocus capturing camera with VGA@18fps recording. It’s also capable of playing DivX and Xvid videos.

LG Optimus Chic on the other side packs 5 megapixel snapper and captures VGA@30fps videos. Unfortunately, according to its official specs Chic is only DivX compatible and we're still yet to see if it will play XviD movies too.

In addition to its piano black version, Optimus Chic will also be released in white color (at least for the battery cover).

And to spice things a small bit, we have our own live images of LG Optimus Chic.
