LG Electronics (LG) has unveiled its new Android Smartphone, LG Optimus Black in the market.
According to George Mudhune, LG Regional Marketing Manager, East and Central Africa the P970 LG OPTIMUS Black is now trading at Ksh.40, 000, and available in all major shop outlets across Kenya.
The phone provides users with a dramatically brighter 4-inch NOVA display in the world’s slimmest 9.2 mm mobile device and is designed to be the brightest, clearest and most readable among mobile screens with 700 nits of brightness for optimal visibility:
“LG Optimus Black provides users with an easier and more natural experience when browsing the web, reading emails, or writing documents with higher levels of brightness and pure white tones that deliver true black and white colors for ideal handset viewing. NOVA technology featured on LG Optimus Black also enables users to maintain visibility whether indoors or outdoors under strong sunlight,” he said.
In addition to greater luminosity, the NOVA display on LG Optimus Black also radically reduces power consumption by 50 percent during general indoor use compared to a conventional LCD.
Similarly, AMOLED consumes twice as much power as NOVA to display a full white screen, the most frequently used color scheme for web browsing. Combined with the 1500 mAh battery of the LG Optimus Black, users will have enough power for their daily needs, even at maximum brightness settings.
Making a strong visual statement, LG Optimus Black weighs only 109g and offers sleek lines and smooth edges that improve handheld grip. Tapering down to the world’s thinnest smartphone profile of 6.0 mm, LG Optimus Black’s subtle back arch helps to create the illusion of even greater slimness.
Unique to the LG Optimus Black, the flush and flawless finish of the front display is achieved by innovatively hiding the Invisible Receiver behind the edges of the phone.
“We are excited to introduce this stylish new Android smartphone and expect the LG Optimus Black to play a key role in the mobile market,” said Mr. Mr. Woo Won Na, MD of LG Electronics Africa Logistics FZE.
“LG Optimus Black reflects our core strengths of advanced technology, in both display and design, offering the world’s brightest screen and the world’s slimmest design in an attractive and smart package,” he added.
The LG Optimus Black also offers a set of smarter features designed for easy and faster access to important apps and content. Optimus UI 2.0 lets users directly access messages, emails and missed calls from the locked screen with just one single finger tap.
The Gesture UI offers more intuitive commands, including lifting, shaking and tapping, for taking calls, entering camera mode, or enjoying music. LG Optimus Black also introduces the world’s first Wi-Fi Direct for quick and high-quality data transfer between mobile devices and adopts the world’s first 2MP front-facing camera.
At the same time, LG Electronics has opened the largest customer care centre at the Nakumatt Junction Nairobi. The state of the art centre will go along way in serving customers needs-ranging from inquiry of products to offering accessories for mobile electronics.
Mudhune said LG will offer 50 percent to the services or purchases made by customers in the next two weeks as it opens from 8am-5pm daily.
“We believe this customer care centre is will help in addressing our customers’ needs and giving them value for money for whatever service they will get. Our main objective as LG is to ensure our customers have a satisfactory experience of our products and services.”
