LG has become the first manufacturer to launch handsets with DLNA technology, allowing users to share content between mobile and TV.
Two of its new devices, aimed at the mid and high tier, will allow users to download video, music or gaming content and share it on their TV in HD quality, even if the TV is not LG.
The manufacturer revealed the Optimus 2X in December, the world’s first smartphone with a dual-core processor, which it showcased at CES this week. It will go on sale in March and is expected to be available on a £35 per month contract.
The phone will initially be released with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradeable to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
Meanwhile, LG also unveiled the Android-powered LG Optimus Black (pictured), at the 2011 CES in Las Vegas. The device has a ‘dramatically brighter’ four-inch NOVA display in the ‘world’s slimmest 9.2 mm mobile device’, LG said.
LG Optimus Black’s NOVA display is designed to be the brightest, clearest and most readable among mobile screens with 700 nits of brightness for optimal visibility.
In addition to greater luminosity, the NOVA display on LG Optimus Black also radically reduces power consumption by 50% during general indoor use compared to a conventional LCD.
All LG Optimus Black features are available on the Android 2.2 Froyo platform with Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade capability.
The LG Optimus Black will be rolled out globally in the first half of 2011. It is expected to be available on a £25 per month contract.
Meanwhile, LG has announced it will also showcase a 4.3-inch glasses-free 3D display for mobile devices.
LG Mobile CEO Dr. Jong-seok Park said: ‘LG sees tremendous growth potential in the 3D mobile display market. With our key understanding of displays, entertainment and mobile technology, LG is looking forward to debuting this exciting new way to watch 3D movies or play games on your mobile phone.’
