Back in February this year we announced that the much-anticipated LG Optimus Black handset would be making its way to T-Mobile UK at some point. Now we have even more good news for our UK readers, as we’ve just discovered that the Android smartphone is also heading to Orange UK.

Although Orange UK did confirm that it would in fact be selling the LG Optimus Black, the service provider unfortunately didn’t reveal any information on the handset’s availability. However, it is believed that the sleekly designed smartphone will be available for free on select monthly plans.

As mentioned over on the mobiletor.com website, the LG Optimus Black runs on Android 2.2 Froyo OS – although it will be upgradeable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread – and comes with a 4-inch LCD capacitive touch screen, a 1GHz processor, A-GPS support and microUSB v2.0.

The LG Optimus Black handset also comes with a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash for capturing and sharing those precious moments, a music player and video calling. It also features several Java games and applications that will no doubt please the casual gamers among you.
