I'm sure you all remember the LG Optimus Black reveal at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011 in Las Vegas earlier this month. The smartphone was showcased as one of the world's slimmest smartphones and was expected to release alongside the LG Optimus 2X. Well that now seems to be true, because both the Optimus 2X and Optimus Black have gotten themselves pre-order listings on Amazon's Germany subsidiary.

The Black Beast

The first phone to boast a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, the LG Optimus 2X is a total benchmarking beast. Camera-wise, the Optimus 2X features an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing one. The Display is a 4-inch WVGA screen and it comes with 8GB of storage space, which can be increased via a MicroSD card slot. The Optimus 2X also has an HDMI port at the bottom of the device for full HD video output and to top it off, the phone comes with DLNA support for content sharing.

Not much is known about the LG Optimus Black though, apart from the fact that it has a 4-inch screen, has a 5MP camera and sports a 9.2mm bezel which is really slim.

Both phones are listed at 499 euros, which translates to roughly Rs. 31,000. The Optimus 2X has been spotted with higher price tags elsewhere, so Amazon's pre-order discount is just a little bit sweeter. That price seems a bit high for the Optimus Black though, so maybe there are some unrevealed details about the phone that make it command such a price. 3D, perhaps?
