Today, South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics announced that its LG Optimus L7 smartphone, the high-end device of the new L-Style series, has started to roll out on the market.
The smartphone is now available for purchase in major markets across Europe and Asia, and will be delivered to more of them in the near future.
Running under Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the new device was made official back in February, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The handset was unveiled along with two other L-Style devices, the Optimus L3 (which arrived on shelves in Europe, Asia and Latin America back in March) and Optimus L5.
The new LG Optimus L7
packs a large 4.3-inch touchscreen display and is powered by a TI OMAP 4430 dual-core 1GHz application processor.
The handset also packs 1 GB of RAM for increased performance capabilities, 4 GB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 32GB of external storage space.
On the back, the smartphone features a 5-megapixel photo snapper with LED flash and support for HD video recording, complemented by a front camera suitable for video calling.
Optimus L7 was also designed with support for various connectivity options, including HSDPA, 21 Mbps and HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth. It also sports Wi-Fi hotspot, microUSB v2.0 and A-GPS support.
Developed in LG’s new “L-Style” fashion
, the new mobile phone boasts a thin 8.7mm body, capable of providing users with a unique feel via its ultra-slim sleek design.
For those out of the loop, we should note that the South Korean handset vendor has confirmed this week that it would focus on the manufacturing of Android devices moving forth, and that it leaves plans for new Windows Phone devices aside for the time being.
