Spotted! LG Mobile has just unveiled their latest smartphone joining the LG Optimus family – LG Optimus 2 AS680. No doubt, this is another amazing budget-type smartphone from LG although the announcement first came out in the USA but soon LG will start shipping LG Optimus 2 AS680 across the globe. A friend and colleague of mind is using its younger brother LG Optimus One P500 which he bought last year and I am quite glad to say he still enjoying it. His first impression when I showed him the announcement from LG about the Optimus 2, he immediately said they do look like the same. So we did a little more digging about this LG Optimus 2 AS680 and here are the details.
Yes it does still look like its predecessor LG Optimus One but a little bit smaller according to the specifications of LG Optimus 2. It has a 3.2″ capacitive touch-screen display (16M Color TFT, 320 x 480 pixels, HVGA resolution) and as usual powered by Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) which is still the standard and stable Android OS platform with a processor of 800 MHz. LG Optimus 2 AS680 sports a 3.2MP autofocus camera and camcorder. As for the storage, LG Optimus 2 have a 179MB internal memory and with a microSD slot that can be use up to 32GB.

We estimate that the selling price of LG Optimus 2 AS680 will be more or less closely when LG Optimus One was released last year – at least PhP 15,000.00. Let us just wait and see.
