LG officially introduced the affordable Optimus L3 in India a few days ago, and the smartphone has already received a price cut.
The smartphone was initially available for a suggested retail price of Rs 9,299 (165 USD or 135 EUR), but LG decided to slash Rs 1,000 (18 USD or 15 EUR) off the Optimus L3’s price.
Keep in mind that this is the dual-SIM version of the LG Optimus L3, not the standard variant that was launched on the market back in February at the Mobile World Congress 2012.
Aside from the cosmetic differences, both specs have similar features, with one exception. The LG Optimus L3 E405 comes with dual-SIM capabilities, whereas the Optimus L3 E400 lacks this feature.
Given the fact that this is an affordable Android phone, customers should not expect any impressive hardware and software configuration.
In this regard, the Optimus L3 E405
is powered by Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread operating system and there are slim chances that this will be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform.
When it comes to hardware, LG Optimus L3 E405 is even less impressive. The handset packs a low-performance 800 MHz single-core Qualcomm MSM7225A Snapdragon processor, which is complemented by an Adreno 200 graphics processing unit and only 384MB of RAM.
There is 1GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card. On the back, the smartphone has a 3-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus and video recording.
Unfortunately, the Optimus L3 E405 does not come with a secondary front-facing camera for video calls. Last but not least, the smartphone
sports 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display with support for 240 x 320 pixels resolution and 262k colors.
LG Optimus L3 E405 is now available for purchase in India through leading retailers across the country, including Flipkart
