LG has yet another Optimus model ready for launch, known as the Optimus Q2. This device is both light and thin, although it’s far from the skinny LG Optimus Black. What’s really appealing about it is that it combines the dual core CPU with a sliding QWERTY keyboard.
The Optimus Q2 will be exclusively launched via LG Uplus starting next weekend. Following the original Optimus Q model, this handset uses a horizontal slide QWERTY keypad and a 4 inch WVGA IPS display. The package is kept light at 147 grams and 12.3mm, or so says LG, probably not knowing the dimensions of the Galaxy S II.
Inside there’s a dual core 1.2GHz CPU and Gingerbread OS runs the show on the phone. The display offers 700 nits of brightness, an impressive performance, that will be surpassed by the upcoming second generation of the Nova Display made by LG. A LG Electronics representative has mentioned that this model targets consumers in their 20s and 30s, so it’s most likely about socializing and staying in touch with modern hardware.
