Talking about the gamut of latest smartphones that we are going to see this week from the CES event in Las Vegas, I think it won’t be complete without having the Korean company showing off another Android flagship.

LG has been in the game with the success of its “brainchild” Optimus One with more than 2-million units sold 2 months since it was launched mid-November last year, among others, and of course their 2-core Optimus 2X expected to be out this month. But before you see that on the shelves, LG just announced what they claimed to be the world’s slimmest smartphone called Optimus Black. Slimmest, huh? I guess they haven’t learned about that little bad boy from Sony Ericsson, called Xperia Arc, which is only 9 mm thin and even 0.3 mm thinner at its thinnest point. Anyway, we couldn’t recognize that difference anymore unless we use a precision caliper.

The LG Optimus Black flaunts a 4-inch NOVA display and runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo), yet upgradeable to Android 2.3 or Gingerbread. It’s claimed as the first to utilize a 2 MP front-facing camera and has Wi-Fi Direct capability. Read on with the official press release below.
