LG has updated its website to include the follow up to last year’s Optimus smartphone, simply named the Optimus 2. The device features a 3.2-inch display with Android 2.3 and an 800Mhz processor. Additionally, the Optimus 2 sports GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a microSD slot, a 3.2MP camera and a 1,500 mAh battery. Interestingly enough, it looks like the device will run a stock version of Gingerbread. There has been no word on a release date, but the Optimus 2 will most likely be marketed as a budget-friendly entry-level smartphone that may make an appearance at next week’s Consumer Electronics Show.
