LG Optimus GT540

The last time we heard about the LG GT540 was back at CES in January. Back then the launch date of the phone was said to be April this year and then I don’t ever remember hearing of the phone since then.

Today the LG Blog in France gave an update to the handset and revealed it will be known as the LG Optimus when launched. The Optimus runs the Google [GOOG] Android 1.6 (donut) operating system.

Other specifications include 5 keys on the front of the device with 3 being physical and 2 being touch keys. The display on the LG Optimus measures 3 inches and has a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. The processor running inside is a Qualcomm Qualcomm MSM7227 that runs at 600MHz.

For storage it will have 150Mb internal with up to a 2GB microSD card supplied (depending on the mobile operator) and will be capable of accepting 32GB microSD cards.

The phone will connect over 3G networks at speeds up to 7.2MBps HSDPA and will also have Wi-Fi connectivity built in. Other features include aGPS and the UI running on the phone will be S-Class.

It appears that the phone confirming the LG Optimus name has been removed from LG Blog, but the technical specs of the device can be found at this post here. Via: UnwiredView
