LG announced the impending release of the Optimus Sol in a press release on Monday, giving the phone a ship date of mid-September for Europe, with the Central and South American regions to follow soon after.

The phone runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 1GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, and ships with a 2GB Micro SD card. It has a petite profile, measuring in at just 9.8mm thick, and has a 3.8-inch “Ultra AMOLED” display, which the press release says “makes content easy to see even in bright and sunny conditions”.

The phone has a 5-megapixel shooter on the back, capable of recording VGA resolution video at 24 frames per second. It ships with Adobe Flash 10.1 and can apparently boost its own battery life by up to 30% using “an enhanced idle-based power management system”. You’ll be able to purchase it in black, white, and titan (whatever that means) once it is available.
