LG Optimus Black now available at RM1399

The LG Optimus Black is finally here in Malaysia at an attractive price tag of RM1399 from IMCC Network. The Optimus Black which looks similar to the LG Optimus 2X but it is LG’s slimmest smart phone at 9.2mm.

As mentioned in our earlier post, the key highlight of the Optimus Black is its NOVA display which offers half the power consumption of standard LCDs but offers the highest brightness performance at 700 nits. As comparison, the iPhone 4 does 571 nits while the Samsung Galaxy S pushes 347 nits. Its dual core sibling the Optimus 2X does 399 nits. On paper, this should give superior viewing outdoors.

Internally, it has a 1GHz TI OMAP 3630 processor, 512MB of RAM and a decent 2GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD. Another neat feature on the Optimus Black is a gesture UI which lets you perform regular task by simple hand gestures such as making calls or enabling the music player. All these for RM1399 is quite a steal considering its unique screen, decent specs and slim form factor.
