LG unveils Optimus smartphone range
LG is gearing up for a serious assault on the mobile market with its new Optimus range of ‘smart devices’.
The range kicks off with the LG Optimus One with Google and the LG Optimus Chic – the first of 10 devices planned for this year.
The Android smartphones and tablets will cover entry to premium level when the full range arrives, said the manufacturer.
Dr. Skott Ahn, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said: ‘The LG Optimus Series is aimed at challenging the notion that one device can meet the needs of many.
‘At LG, we believe in providing people with many different choices because our customers are not all alike.
‘We want to provide devices that suit all needs and simplify people’s lives.’
According to LG, the Optimus One with Google offers ‘the latest in Google mobile features and connects seamlessly to the world’.
The manufacturer adds that the handset will have ‘a convenient user interface and diverse multimedia options’ which make it ‘one of the easiest to use on the market’.
