LG have just announced their latest Android-powered high-end mobile, the LG Optimus EX.
Packing a 1.2GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor for proper smartphone gaming and measuring in at just 9.65mm deep and 127g in weight, the Optimus EX looks to be a replacement for LG’s current flagship smartphone, the LG Optimus 2X.
However, the proudest boast of the LG Optimus 2X is its screen, which measures in at four inches, but boasts an ultra-bright 700 nits display. A 700 nits display, we hear you say? We’re glad you asked. A nit, for the uninitiated, is a measurement of luminescence equivalent to one candela per square metre (a candela, in turn, is a measure of brightness, roughly equivalent to the amount of light produced by a single lit candle). For the sake of comparison, the iPhone 4 display measures in at around 500 nits, making the Optimus EX considerably brighter.
The LG Optimus EX will be the second 700 nit phone to be released by LG after the LG Optimus Black. But remember, would-be Optimus purchasers: while stunning brightness may look pretty, it will do nothing good for your phone’s battery life.
