LG lights up smartphone for the sunshine

Build a business case: developing custom apps

LG has brought a sun-friendly Android smartphone out into the light.

The Optimus Sol is based around a 3.8in OLED screen that LG confidently claimed is "one of the best displays on the market" that's "easy to see even in bright and sunny conditions".

As an OLED, the screen only consumes power when a given pixel is illuminated. So the Sol features a "Dark UI" to keep illumination levels low, and battery life maximised. Not that LG said what difference it'll make to the phone's runtime.

Stop making calls and accessing the internet, and you'll save even more battery power… ahem.

The Sol runs Android Gingerbread on a 1GHz processor. It has a 5Mp camera with auto-focus.

There's no word yet on pricing, but Sol will shine forth around the middle of September. ®
