So LG has got the Optimus One, the Optimus 2X and the Optimus Black smartphones to cater to a wide variety of audiences seeking to purchase a smartphone, along with an Optimus 3D for those who simply have to be ahead of the times. That is fine and all, but it seems that these are not the only Android-based smartphones that LG has in store for consumers, and leaked pictures appear to indicate that the Korean OEM has got one more product up its sleeve: a smartphone with a larger display.

With smartphones getting more and more popular with each passing day, it should probably be a given that manufacturers and OEMs are scrambling to design a wide range of products which will cater to multiple target market segments. After all, the concept of a 'one size fits all' design does not always work when it comes to something as personal as mobile phones: some people might prefer to have their devices as small as possible, while others may require a larger display to make the task of handling their smartphones a little easier on the eyes.

That being said, if you happen to fall into the second group of users as listed above (or if you are just an Android smartphone aficionado), this bit of information might just be enough to brighten up your Tuesday. Apparently,  LG has a new Optimus smartphone in the works, and this one is going to feature a larger display, as shown in the leaked image below, courtesy of Korean website XportsNews:

Details about the phone are scarce, but the device has been reportedly dubbed the 'Optimus Big' by netizens due to the size of its display, especially when placed in comparison with most typical smartphones available on the market today. Additional leaked hardware specifications seem to indicate that the 'Optimus Big' will utilize a 4.3-inch NOVA display, which puts it near the five-inch Dell Streak in terms of size.

Last but not least, the Big will reportedly come standard with a 1GHz single-core processor and a built-in T-DMB TV tuner, which supposedly allows users to watch broadcast television programs on their smartphones.

No other information about the smartphone has been released yet though, so do check back for updates.
