LG launches Optimus One and Optimus Chic Android smartphones

LG Optimus One and Optimus Chic

It took over 2 months, but LG has finally spilled the beans on its Froyo-lovin’ Optimus smartphones. And from the looks of it, we may be seeing yet another shift on the entry-level Android market right before the holidays.

The Optimus One (left) and the Optimus Chic (right) are basically the same, with the latter sporting a beefier 5-megapixel camera. Both smarties sport a capacitive touch screen, which supposedly makes them multitouch-capable and open to the latest services from the Android Market such as Google Goggles.

Philippine SRPs haven’t been announced yet, but expect these Androids to sell for way less than the Samsung Galaxy S and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. Our unofficial price forecast? Probably somewhere between P15,000-P20,000.

LG looks to ship more than 10 million of them worldwide – a lofty goal, especially for LG. We’ll know if that figure is achievable once they show up locally. It shouldn’t be long now, though.
