Australian wireless carrier Optus is gearing up for the release of two new Android-based smartphones from LG Electronics, namely the LG Optimus Black and Optimus 3D, which are reportedly set to arrive on shelves at the company in June and July.
The operator was already known to plan the upcoming release of LG Optimus Black, but it seems that it had to push the launch back a little from the initial May launch time frame.
Recently leaked documents, which emerged into the wild via Ausdroid
, show that the wireless services provider would actually make the handset available in June,
Moreover, the same documents unveiled the fact that Optus would also bring to Australia the LG Optimus 3D, and that it would be set to make it available starting with July.
Unfortunately, specific info on the price tag that these handsets would sport is not known for the time being, though rumor has it that the Optimus Black might be launched on a cap plan between $49 to $79 per month.
For those who might have not encountered the handsets
before, we should note that the LG Optimus Black was unveiled back in January during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
It is powered by Google's Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, and should receive an upgrade to the newer Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
One of the most appealing features of this device would be its 4-inch NOVA touchscreen display, which is said to be brighter than average displays out there.
As for the LG Optimus 3D
, it was launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February as the very first Android smartphone in the world to sport 3D recording and playback capabilities.
The new handset was launched as a dual-core, dual-channel, dual-cameras smartphone, which boasts a large 4.3-inch touchscreen display, and a fast TI OMAP4 CPU inside, with each core clocked in at 1GHz.
