Late last month at MWC, Korean manufacturer LG introduced the sequel to its Optimus L line
. The LG Optimus L3 II
has already been launched in Latin America, and the LG Optimus L5 II
should soon be launched throughout the world. The LG Optimus L7 II
is available in Russia
with a dual-SIM variant, and in Germany, you can now pre-order the LG Optimus L7 II
for €249 ($324 USD) from Amazon Germany.
Strictly a mid-range device, the LG Optimus L7 II offers a 4.3 inch LCD screen with WVGA resolution which works out to a pixel density of 217ppi. Under the hood you will find a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8225 processor with an Adreno 203 GPU crunching the graphics. 768MB of RAM is on board and the 4GB of native storage can be bumped up using the 32GB microSD slot. There is an 8MP camera on back and a .3MP shooter in front and the fairly large 2,460mAh battery should keep your phone running all day.
With Android 4.1.2 installed right out-of-the-box, the LG Optimus L7 II has Project Butter keeping the phone running smooth and lag-free, while Google Now sends out the information you want when you want it. The newly enhanced notifications page lets you send email, see pictures and videos, and make phone calls directly from a notification. Other features include QSlide 2
for multitasking. Two apps can be used at the same time with one solid and the other transparent. The slide allows the user to control the level of transparency between the two apps so you can switch off between using one app and then switch to using the other.The original Optimus L series sold more than 10 million units for LG
and with the updated specs of the sequels, LG should continue to do well with this line in Europe.
