We caught a glimpse of the LG Optimus Net sometime in the middle of this month, but here we are with news of the smartphone arriving over at the FCC, sporting NFC capability to boot. This NFC-enabled model is known as P692 if you’re a sucker for model numbers, whereas the non-NFC version of the Optimus Net has the model number P690. Despite it being able to support wireless payments, the rest of the hardware specifications are nothing much to shout about – the device has a paltry 512MB RAM and an equal amount of ROM, a 3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, GPS support, a 3.2″ display at just 320 × 480 pixels, and a 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor running proceedings from within.
The operating system of choice? At least it comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so you need not wait for an update the moment the phone arrives at your doorstep. LG has noted that the Optimus Net’s NFC capabilities will target mobile payment markets in Europe, so there is a chance that this NFC version of the Optimus Net won’t arrive Stateside.
