LG has officially announced a trio of rumored smartphones: the Optimus L7 II, Optimus L5 II and Optimus L3 II.
The company said its new L Series II line "embodies the beauty of the first L Series but with a more refined touch." The forthcoming slate introduces four new design elements: Seamless Layout, Laser Cut Contour, Radiant Rear Design and Smart LED Lighting situated on the home button.
The LG Optimus L7 II will have a 4.3 inch IPS WVGA display and will be powered by a dual-core 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (MSM8225), as well as 768 MB of RAM.
Internal storage of 4 GB can be expanded through a microSD slot, accompanied by a 2,460 mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 3-megapixel front-facing snapper. The device will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Dual SIM version of the Optimus L7 II will initially launch in Russia this week.
Meanwhile, the LG Optimus L 5 II will have a 4.0 inch WVGA display and a 1,700 mAh battery. The LG Optimus L 3 II houses a 3.2 inch QVGA IPS display and 1,540 mAh battery. More details including pricing and availability for the aforementioned smartphones will be announced at MWC.
LG recently teased "unlimited possibilities" for the Mobile World Congress, which takes place February 25 to February 28. As for the original L Series lineup, LG has sold over 10 million units from that slate.
"LG has a history of pushing the envelope when it comes to style; 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.
