The highlights here is that these two LG phones are actually powered by 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Their batteries are also both rated at 1500mAh. The RAM is a whopping 512MB with 512MB of ROM, along with 16GB of on-board storage and support for HSPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. They both have access to Microsoft services such as Xbox LIVE and Zune as well as other applications made for the new Windows Phone 7 OS.

The interesting thing about these two Smartphones to note here is that the specification are almost balanced except for the fact that the LG Optimus 7Q comes with a sides sliding hardware QWERTY while the LG Optimus 7 only has a touchscreen as the input method. Finally the LG Optimus 7 is thinner and maybe sleeker, obviously from the lack of hardware keys!

These twin fabulous LG mobile phones are expected to start selling in at least 35 countries across Europe and Asia from the 21st of October 2010. Although there is no word on pricing yet, but guessing from the cost of other devices of the same class, they should go for $199 and $299 for the LG Optimus 7 and Optimus 7Q respectively after carrier subsidy with contract.
