LG was supposed to bring 20 smartphones to market this year and the LG Chic was one of them. We first saw the LG Optimus Chic at IFA in Berlin back in September. Now, the Android 2.2 handset is available in Germany via Amazon.com.
The LG Optimus Chic has a less curvy form factor and comes in white, black and red and a price tag comparable to $376 US dollars. The Chic comes with Android 2.2, upgradeable to 2.3. It has the same 3.2″ HVGA screen as the Optimus line in the United States. It features an upgraded 5 megapixel camera and DLNA.
The original LG Optimus has already sold 1 million units worldwide. The followup may do a little better with the feature upgrade.
