LG cuts price on Optimus 2X and Optimus Black, Gingerbread update imminent
I’ve been seeing this price drop on the LG Optimus 2X and Optimus Black lately so I wondered if you already know about it.
The dual-core LG Optimus 2X is now at Php24,990 from its previous price of Php27,990. That’s a huge difference from other dual-core phones like the Samsung Galaxy SII which you can get for Php28,000 at the cheapest and HTC Sensation which is at Php26,500.
The LG Optimus Black which holds the brightest display on a smartphone is now at Php17,990 from Php19,990. This makes it a really tempting buy if you’re in the market for a decent thin-and-light, 4-inch, 1GHz phone on a known brand. The HTC Desire S and Samsung Galaxy S costs about Php2k more.
What makes these phones more attractive aside from their price drop is the upcoming Gingerbread update. LG announced that the Android 2.3 update will be available for these phones early next month.
