LG Optimus 2X and Optimus Black: More pricing details

There are two upcoming LG phones which have many people talking, the LG Optimus 2X and the LG Optimus Black. Previous articles on the Optimus Black on OSM have included the release news from CES 2011 and its inclusion in our ‘5 of the best’ Android smartphones from CES 2011.

As far as the Optimus 2X goes we’ve looked at a video taster of film recorded on the handset, a hands-on video and news of its release in Korea and the fact a white version will also be on offer there. We recently gave you some expected release dates and pricing for the Optimus 2X release in the U.K. and now we have news from Vlad Savov over on Engadget that the Amazon Germany site has listed the prices for both of these really impressive looking new LG handsets.

If you check out this Amazon page for the LG Optimus 2X dual-core handset you can see a price listed as €499 (note that for this market it seems to have been re-named the LG Optimus Speed and it will be available in brown as well as the usual black. However the brown version will set you back €549. Alternatively if it’s the Optimus Black you’re interested in then head to this Amazon page where you can see it’s listed at €499.

Both are presently listed as not available with no release date yet given but we reckon they will sell like hotcakes once out. Both handsets will be running on Android 2.2 Froyo, and both have 4-inch screens. However the Optimus 2X (or Speed) has a dual-core processor with video recording capability of 1080p while the Optimus Black is super-slim and will have WiFi Direct connectivity.

For another look at the LG Optimus 2X head to an article by Chris Burns over on Android Community with another walkthrough video and commentary. Are you waiting to purchase either of these 2 upcoming LG handsets and if which one has your vote? We’d be interested to hear from you so please send in those comments.
