“B” is for “Black”, or at least that’s how LG’s alphabet book reads. The company’s revealed two new smartphones as it prepares for the CES, finally giving a name to the “B” we heard about last month, which it seems will be known as the LG Optimus Black. The second is the LG Revolution, which will feature LTE connectivity on Verizon.
Engadget scored some pics of LG setting up its CES display, and took the opportunity to grab some pre-announcement shots of the promo material for these two handsets. Now we have an actual measurement to back up the earlier pictures of the very thin B – now Black. The phone should measure in at 9.2 millimeters, a smidgen thicker than our estimation, but still thinner than the iPhone 4. As expected, LG is playing up the Black’s display quality.
We caught a glimpse of the Revolution in October, when it was a then-unidentified LG LTE model badged for Verizon. It will be joining the HTC Thunderbolt among others as the launch models for Verizon’s high-speed network. LG has yet to provide any specifications on the smartphone, but be honest; the important part is that it’s LTE.
