The Korean electronic maker LG has unveiled two of its Optimus 7 smartphone series powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7, the Optimus 7 and Optimus 7Q, the Quantum.
The Optimus 7 has a full-face 3.8-inch capacitive touchscreen with 800×480 pixel resolution and is just 11.5mm thick. It features a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording and playback, 1GHz processor, and 16GB of internal memory. The smartphone also supports Play To, a DLNA (digital living network alliance)-streaming feature from supported TVs, set-tops and related hardware.
On the other hand, the Optimus 7Q or Quantum has a slide-out hardware QWERTY keyboard, a 3.5-inch WVGA display, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p video camera, autofocus, and flash, and a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
The announcement was made by the company’s U.K. unit which appears to have declared early than expected. The Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 is said to be one of integral product launches since a long time. It is that one much anticipated product that could dictate the fate of Microsoft within the fierce smartphone market.
LG is expected to start shipping the handsets on October 21.
