The slim and stylish handset runs Android‘s Gingerbread OS. The handset exhibits clean and sharp lines with the design house’s signature Saffiano pattern, typically etched into its leather goods, adorning the back of the phone. A distinct PRADA influence is evident on the phone’s design. A minimal number of hardkeys help keep the design sleek. It measures a mere 8.5 mm thick. An LG feature, Floating Mass Technology, is said to optically enhance the thinness of the phone. The handset features a 4.3-inch screen with an 800 nit NOVA High Brightness Display screen.
Running Android 2.3, the DoublePlay is equipped with a main 3.5-inch screen and a sliding 2-inch sub display dividing the QWERTY keyboard into two parts. T-Mobile will soon offer an unusual dual-touchscreen Android-based smartphone, in the form of LG DoublePlay. Along with its dual touchscreens, the DoublePlay comes with an LED flash-equipped 5-megapixel camera, 720p video recording, and processing provided by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU. The DoublePlay’s screens can operate either simultaneously or separately, which “allows users to perform multiple tasks at once such as updating their Facebook pages while simultaneously surfing the Web, texting or checking email,” LG says.
