LG Makes Optimus L Series II Smartphones Official With L7II, L5II & L3II
Mobile World Congress is right around the corner, but it appears some manufacturers simply cannot wait to show you their latest offerings. LG has this morning announced its new Optimus L Series II family, which includes three devices called the L3II, the L5II, and the L7II. They range in size from 3.2 inches to 4.3 inches, and it’ll be the the largest model, the L7II, that is available first.
The original Optimus L Series was a big success for LG, with more than 10 million units sold during its first ten months of availability. The Korean company is now hoping to continue that momentum with the second-generation L Series II, which promises “sophisticated style and differentiated features.”
The L Series II delivers a more refined touch, according to LG, with four new design elements: Seamless Layout, Laser Cut Contour, Radiant Rear Design, and Smart LED Lighting on the home button. It also boasts high-resolution IPS displays and extended capacity batteries, as well as dual-SIM options for all three devices.
The dual-SIM version of the Optimus L7II will be the first device to launch, making its debut in Russia this week. The device features a 4.3-inch WVGA display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage which is expandable via the microSD card slot.
The L7II also offers an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with an LED flash, a front-facing VGA camera, and a 2,460 mAh battery. It will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, with LG optimizations like QuickMemo, Quick Button, and Safety Care.
Availability of the Optimus L3II, which features a 3.2-inch QVGA display and a 1,540 mAh battery, and the Optimus L5II, which has a 4-inch WVGA display and a 1,700 mAh battery, will be announced by LG at a later date.
