LG Optimus Sol leaked video

LG 'Victor' prototype pawed over by German tech bloggers

German tech blog goes hands-on with unreleased LG phone.

A prototype of LG's upcoming Optimus Sol, a mid-range smartphone due for release sometime before the end of the year, has cropped up on German tech site BestBoyz.

Previously known by its codename 'Victor', the Optimus Sol was one of the several handsets leaked back in July when LG's 2011 product roadmap was outed online.

The Optimus Sol packs a 3.8-inch AMOLED display, a 1GHz processor, a 5MP camera and will come running Gingerbread with a custom LG UI layered over the top. According to BestBoyz, the phone will launch in both black and silver models, with pricing in Europe set at around 299 Euros.

No word on release date as yet, although that leaked roadmap put the launch at sometime in Q3 this year, so expect to hear more on the Sol in the coming weeks.
