Once again Asia one-ups the rest of the world's mobile industry, this time with the LG Optimus Big. The Optimus Big sports a whopping 4.3-inch display, making it the largest LG phone to date.

Its other specs are also quite impressive. It runs on a 1GHz dual-core processor (no word on if it's a Tegra 2) and is equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, 16GB of internal memory, and an HDMI port. The display has the same technology we saw on the Optimus Black--the Nova display has apparently 700 nits of brightness, making it one of the brightest and most colorful screens out there.

The Optimus Big only ships with Android 2.2 and it looks like there's a bit of an interface skin on it. It'll debut in Korea on April 28, but it hasn't been announced whether it'll arrive on U.S. shores.
