The Optimus One with Google is a family of entry-level, touch-screen smartphones manufactured by LG Electronics, Inc. Initially released running the Android 2.2 Froyo software stack, LG plans to release software to upgrade the many variants to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Although the basic physical form factor of each variant is the same, the variants have differences in hard button shape and layout, the form of the metal side bezel and the user interfaces added by LG or various carriers. Versions of the Optimus One exist that operate on various frequency bands and either GSM or CDMA-based network protocols.

Since sales first began in mid-November 2010, LG has released seven variants, with at least one more on the way. The Optimus One line is the first LG smartphone line to sell more than 1 million units. As of December 10, 2010 (2010 -12-10) more than 2 million units have been sold worldwide, with 1.3 million units sold in North America, 450,000 units sold in South Korea, 200,000 units sold in Europe and 50,000 units sold in Asia and the CIS.

The internal name of the Optimus One during product development was "Thunder".

Variants

Wireless communications service providers in North America have sold more than 1.3 million Optimus One smartphones as of December 10, 2010 (2010 -12-10).[1] However, due to different technologies used by operators in the United States, many variants of the LG Optimus One exist, usually replacing the word "One" with a single letter representing the carrier. For example, the LG Optimus M is offered exclusively by MetroPCS, while the LG Optimus T is only available at T-Mobile USA.

LG Optimus One

The Optimus One P500 was the first version offered for sale, with sales beginning in South Korea in mid-November 2010.[1] This GSM version of the phone is sold by wireless communications service providers in Asia, Europe and Canada.[7] As of December 10, 2010 (2010 -12-10) more than 700,000 of this model have been sold with 450,000 sold in South Korea, 200,000 sold in Europe and 50,000 sold in Asia and the CIS. LG expects the number of Optimus One units sold to increase dramatically as sales gain strength in Europe, Asia and Latin America.[1]

In Canada, the LG Optimus One (P500h) is sold by Telus Mobility and its brand Koodo Mobile, with UMTS frequency at 850, 1900, and 2100 Mhz.

Update history

Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

On December 8, 2010 LG announced that it would need to study the Gingerbread Compatibility Definition Document and the public branch open source code before it could determine if the Optimus One series could be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.[19] However, on December 9, 2010, LG stated that it will update Optimus One devices to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but a date for the upgrade was not specified.[2] Responding to a question posted on LG India's Facebook page on March 16, 2011, an LG representative initially stated that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update will be available in late May via the Android Market, but hours later added that the upgrade is not confirmed and the information is subject to change.[20]

The following details the history of the Gingerbread update rollout:

  • The first country to receive the update was Romania. [21]
  • This was followed by Russia, Chile and the rest of the world soon after, according to LG's Facebook page. [22]
  • On August 28, 2011, the update for LG Optimus One has started rolling out on various parts of the world.[23]
  • On September 14, 2011, the update for American provider Sprint's LG Optimus S was issued.
    • On September 27, 2011, this update was halted because it caused multiple issues for users.
