By Updated on

There have definitely been some interesting announcements made at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2011) so far. Not only have Toyota introduced us to the new Entune multimedia system, but LG has just unveiled the LG Optimus Black smartphone.

According to an article by Eric M. Zeman over at phonescoop.com, the Optimus Black smartphone uses what LG has called the NOVA display, which measures 4 inches and has a pixel resolution of 800 x 480. Although the NOVA display uses 50% less power, it still remains bright enough to see outdoors.

LG has noted that the handset also features the very first 2-megapixel front-facing camera and Wi-Fi Direct certification. A full list of specs (including a 1500 mAh battery and GPS) can be found via the phonearena.com website. What do you think of the LG Optimus Black smartphone?
