We already know that LG plans to release the Optimus L7 Android smartphone in Canada through Rogers. Although there are no details regarding the phone’s availability and price tag, it appears that the Optimus L7’s launch is imminent.According to MobileSyrup, Rogers employees have started to receive documentation for LG Optimus L7, which means the handset will hit shelves sooner than expected.
Rumor has it that Rogers will release the Optimus 7 next month, but no exact release date is available for the moment.
LG Optimus L7 is part of the larger L-Style series of smartphones, which was announced a few days ahead of Mobile World Congress 2012 trade fair.
The smartphone was showcased last month in Barcelona, along with other L-Style series handsets, including Optimus L5 and Optimus L3.
Expect this one to come with a generous 4.3-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display. Unfortunately, the phone’s screen only supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution, but at least it features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
Most of the new Android-based phones announced by LG last month will be shipped with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, and Optimus L7 is one of them.
The insides of the smartphone are not that impressive. Still, the 1 GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor is powerful enough to offer users a smooth multitasking, browsing and gaming experience.
On the back, LG Optimus L7 sports a 5-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, while in the front there’s a secondary camera for self-portraits and video calls.
Last but not least, the Optimus L7 packs 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory, which can be expanded via microSD card up to 32GB. It will be shipped with a 1700 mAh Li-Ion battery that features Smart Power Management.
