India is definitely the land of dual-SIM handsets. Most Indian handset makers add this capability to their smartphones and then take care of the features.
Important mobile phone makers such as Samsung, LG and HTC decided to launch special dual-SIM versions of their popular devices in India, in an attempt to attract customers.
This is why LG announced two Optimus L5 models. One of these versions, the LG Optimus L5 Dual E615 has just landed in India and is now available for purchase from major retailers across the country.
Customers who wish to purchase this mid-range smartphone will have to come up with Rs 13.199 (250 USD or 195 EUR) upfront.
However, the price may be slashed in the following weeks, so if you’re not in a hurry to get a dual-SIM handset, then you might want to wait a bit longer.
Aside from dual-SIM capability, it’s worth mentioning LG Optimus L5 Dual comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system integrated with Optimus UI 3.0.
On the inside, the smartphone is equipped with a less powerful 800 MHz single-core Qualcomm MSM7225A Snapdragon processor, which is accompanied by an obsolete Adreno 200 graphics processing unit and only 512MB of RAM.
Obviously, this type of hardware configuration was to be expected from a mid-range smartphone. Furthermore, the device sports a decent 4.0-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports 320 x 480 pixels resolution.
According to LG, the Optimus L4 Dual packs 2.6GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card. The phone’s 1540 mAh Li-Ion battery should provide up to 600 hours of standby time or up to 10 hours of talk time.
The smartphone also comes with an average 5-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and HSDPA support.
