LG outs Optimus Big smartphone with 4.3-inch NOVA Display

LG officially announced the long rumored LG Optimus Big on Friday, making it the Korean firm’s largest Android smartphone to date. The Optimus Big runs Android 2.2, sports a 4.3-inch Nova Display, and is equipped with an HDMI-out port, a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and a 1,500 mAh battery. The NOVA Display is the star of that spec sheet though, and we loved the rich colors and deep blacks when we first saw it on the Optimus Black. The Optimus Big will make its debut on Korea’s LG U+ on April 28th and there’s no word if this beast will swim itself to the United States — but we’d welcome it with open arms if it did. More →

LG planning Optimus Big smartphone with 4.3-inch NOVA display

LG may soon be chasing HTC in the phones-with-massive-displays market. According to some leaked images and specs, LG has a new phone codenamed “Optimus Big” up its sleeve. The Optimus Big — as its name implies — sports a large 4.3-inch screen, a single-core 1GHz processor, a T-DMB TV tuner, and LG’s super bright and sharp NOVA display. Little else is currently known about the phone, although we can tell from the images that it at least sports a forward-facing camera for video chats. It also very likely runs some flavor of Android and appears that it could swallow the iPhone in one bite. If this thing ever makes it to the United States, and we doubt it will, we hope it comes amped up with some 4G and dual-core goodness. More →
