During the launch of the LG Center at Piedmont Plaza along Ngong Road Nairobi, the company unveiled its new LG Smartphone. The LG P920 (3D Optimus) which is still on a limited number brags of a 3D screen and can be viewed without any special spectacles.
Some of the best features of this phone include the fact that the still images and video images can be viewed and sent in any other platform with a 3D look. The gadget has a dual core processor, Corning Gorilla Glass, one of the safest protection screens for smartphones, and a 5 Mega Pixel autofocus camera.
The closest rival to this product is the Samsung Galaxy SII. One competing factor is that the LG 3D Optimus uses Android 2.0 Froyo while the Samsung Galary SII has Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, an updated version. The LG 3D Optimus also lacks radio functionality, which is quite useful in Africa. The Samsung Galaxy SII has better memory specs having 16 GB storage and 1 GB RAM compared to the LG 3D Optimus with 8 GB Storage and 512 MB RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy SII hit the Kenyan market in September 2011. The LG 3D Optimus has been introduced to Kenya with a price tag of Kshs 60,000 (apprx $700).
P. N. Simha also revealed to HumanIPO that the L3, L5 and L7 series will hit the Kenyan market within the year. He said that they will retail from around Kshs 15,000 (appx $175).
