LG Optimus Q2 upgrades Android QWERTY slider

LG launched the second wave of its high-end messaging smartphones late Sunday by launching the Optimus Q2. Its new design centers on a considerably larger four-inch, IPS-based LCD screen with a very bright 700-nit output. The Android 2.3 hardware is also one of the first smartphones in the field with a newly upgraded 1.2GHz Tegra 2 and should outperform the T-Mobile G2X (Optimus 2X).

The design itself is intended to evade some of the bulk of other slider phones while improving on the comfort of the earlier Optimus Q. LG claims the Q2 is nearly a tenth of an inch thinner than competitors and 0.35 ounces lighter than its ancestor. It has a strictly average five-megapixel back camera and a VGA front camera, but it adds Wi-Fi Direct for faster sharing when devices support it.

A launch is expected in South Korea next weekend. Other networks haven't been detailed, although it might arrive on Sprint as just the Q.
