We covered the new LG
Optimus L Series II a few days ago, and now we have some more
technical details of these attractive but inexpensive Android smartphones.
In LG's own words: Each 3G phone's subtle yet bold aesthetics
are representative of LG's unmistakable design DNA. Surpassing the
beauty of the first L Series, the Optimus LII Series were developed
around four new design elements: Seamless Layout, Laser Cut Contour,
Radiant Rear Design and a home button with Smart LED Lighting.
LG Optimus L7 II
The top of the range device is the LG Optimus
L7 II which features a 1GHz dual-core CPU, 768MB
of RAM with 4GB of onboard flash storage plus a microSD
slot, a 4.3" 480 x 800 pixel IPS touchscreen display,
an 8 megapixel primary camera with a 0.3 megapixel secondary
one and a 2460 mAh battery. The Optimus L7 II runs Android
The Optimus L7 II is available in dual-SIM (P715)
or single-SIM versions, and measures 122 x 67 x 9.7mm.
The dual-SIM version looks rather more rounded and is
available in Russia and some other markets right now,
the prices we have seen for that are around €260 which
is quite a lot more expensive than the current €190
street price for the existing L9.
LG Optimus L5 II
The middle of the range L Series II device is the
LG Optimus L5 II. This comes with a smaller 4.0"
480 x 800 pixel screen, a 1GHz single-core processor,
512MB of RAM plus 4GB of built-in flash plus a microSD
slot. On the back is a 5 megapixel camera. The
L5 II also runs Android 4.1.
The Optimus L5 II measures 118 x 62 x 9.2mm, comes
with a 1700 mAh battery and ships in a single-SIM and
dual-SIM version, the current version retails for around
LG Optimus L3 II
The baby of the range is the Android 4.1-based LG
Optimus L3 II, which is actually a very big step
down from the L5 II. With a 3.2" 240 x 320 pixel
panel, a single-core 1GHz processor with 512GB of RAM
and 4GB of onboard flash (with a microSD slot) and a
3.0 megapixel camera the Optimus L3 II might be
a bit too basic for many customers.
Inside is a 1540 mAh battery, and the LG Optimus
L3 II comes in both dual-SIM and single-SIM versions,
measuring 103 x 61 x 11.9mm. We don't know how much
it wil cost, but the current Optimus L3 retails for
These three devices probably won't set the world
on fire, but the previous generation of L Series phones
did sell very strongly. As long as LG can keep the price
down, then the L Series II might be similar success.
