With less than two weeks until Mobile World Congress 2013 kicks off, LG officially unveiled its L Series II of mid-range Android smartphones.There will be three new LG handsets that will be showcased later this week at MWC 2013: Optimus L3 II, Optimus L5 II and Optimus L7 II.
Although the smartphones will be present at MWC 2013 at the end of the month, LG announced that at least one of the L Series II handsets, the dual-SIM version of Optimus L7 II will go on sale in Russia this week.
LG Optimus L7 II ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box, integrated with UX features such as QSlide and QuickTranslator.
The smartphone is equipped with a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8225 processor, 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
Moreover, the Optimus L7 II sports a more than decent 4.3-inch WVGA IPS capacitive touchscreen display that supports 800 x 480 pixels resolution, as well as dual cameras (8-megapixel rear photo snapper and VGA front-facing camera).
Little is known about the Optimus L3 II and Optimus L5 II, but LG confirmed the former sports a 3.2-inch QVGA IPS display and a 1,540mAh battery, whereas the latter packs a much larger 4.0-inch WVGA display and a 1,700mAh battery.
No word on pricing options or availability of Optimus L3 II and Optimus L5 II, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
“LG has a history of pushing the envelope when it comes to style and Optimus L Series II builds on this heritage of design innovation. By evolving the sophisticated style and premium features of the original Optimus L Series, its sequel is expected to continue the popularity of the L Series around the world,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
