As if the recent announcement of the dual-core, Tegra 2 monster LG Optimus 2X (Star) wasn’t enough, information about another piece of desirable hardware from LG has leaked. Lucky for us, the South Korean manufacturer seems to be taking its Android endeavor seriously in 2011, as evidenced by the 2X and a handset codenamed B that features a surprisingly thin body and a super bright screen.
When compared to the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S, the screen of the LG B comes across as very intense. Unless the brightness levels of the other phones simply have been reduced in order to make the B shine, it seems to pack one impressively vivid screen. In fact, the LG B supposedly offers 700 nits of brightness, while the Galaxy S only offers 300 nits.
The tipster that provided these photos also illustrated exactly how thin the LG B is by comparing it to the iPhone 4, which Apple claims to be the world’s thinnest smartphone (the B is to the right).
LG later confirmed the device via a tweet, and explained that the “super slim & super bright” Android handset would make an appearance at CES in early January next year. We’ll keep you posted.
