LG launches flagship LG Optimus  4X HD and LG Optimus L5 in India
 A pair of handsets has been launched in India that runs the gamut from high end to entry level models. Starting with the flagship model, the LG Optimus 4X HD is equipped with a massive 4.7 inch LCD screen with 720p resolution and a high pixel density of 312ppi. Under the hood is the quad-core 1.5GHz Tegra 3 while  1GB of RAM is on board. 16GB of native storage is included. The camera on back is 8MP which captures video at 1080p while the 1.3MP front facing shooter takes self portraits and enables video chat. The 2150mAh battery keeps the phone humming and Android 4.0 is installed. The phone was introduced in Mumbai and soon will be in stores around the country priced at 34,990 INR (approximately $634).

If that is too much of a phone for you, you can tell us as we don't judge here. Perhaps the LG Optimus L5 is more your cup of tea. Yes, Android 4.0.3 is  aboard (with LG UI 3.0 in tow). Yes, there is a 4 inch display, although it has resolution of  just 320 x 480 and a rather low pixel density of 144ppi. A single-core 800MHz Qualcomm 7225A processor tells you everything you need to know. This is a low-end smartphone. The Adreno 200 crunches the graphics and there is 512MB of RAM on board. There is 2.5GB of internal storage that can be expanded with the use of a 32GB capacity microSD slot and a 5MP camera on back takes video in VGA at 30fps. The phone is powered by a 154 mAh battery.  The Optimus L5 will cost 13,199 INR ($239).

If you live in India, it sounds like LG has a phone for you whether you want the flagship model with the best of what LG can offer, or you're looking to save money with a low-end device.

GN7 is a tab. and it's approx 12000 for the 8 GB version. 14000 should give the 16 GB version. But it's still unreleased in India. Who's selling it for 17000 now? Must be an imported one.

i am comparing the price converted into rupee

Optimus L5 - ($239 = INR 13,199)
GN7 - ($200 = INR 15,000)......why GN7 will cost more ??

if $239= INR 13199 then $200 equal to should be around INR 10,000.

oh, got it.
btw, these prices drop with time, so that can explain the difference. The $239 and $199 are MRPs.

This device gets outshined by its Tegra 3 counterpart the HTC One X in almost each and every aspect.

I'd be surprised if the L5 would even turn on given the 154 mAh battery. ;P

LG Optimus 4X HD certainly has a impressive specification , will boost sell in India if come up with more competitive price range between 25000 - 30000 Rs.

oh fail by lg... sorry but hardware and software isn't lg's strong point! especially the L5! it cost too much and by its hardware like the chipset and its pixels its too much for its price! sorry but this is fail! it cost more than 10,000 philippine peso... you can already get a lenovo P700 on that price, at least it has dual sim capability ICS 4" IPS display and 1ghz of processor! same goes with acer's new leak phone the Liquid Gallant Duo same dual sim ICS 4" display and 1ghz processor! but im betting on the new acer phone! its more cheaper!

for the 3rd world countries, dual sim is a need now!

The only reason why i would pick the lg 4x over the one x is the small form factor of the optimus 4x, none of the other specs make it stand out.

Optimus 4x has removable battery... microSD card slot... normal SIM card slot... & you say "none of other specs make it stand out." .... LOLzzzzzzz.....

Sim slot is no big deal and 32gb of internal memory is sufficient unless u want to use your phone as a portable media player, and u should know that internal memories are much faster than SD cards, thats why HTC didnt allow the use of SD cards with ONE X. and most of all its the looks of the phone which everyone want for, and the ONE X is such a beauty over the brick like 4X

I do agree on what u said.... internal mermory are much faster than external one.....

One X polycarbonate design is superb -- no doubt...

but I still preferrer MicroSD card slot on a mobile phones...
