Entry-level LG Optimus L4 II smartphone leaks
If this fresh rumor is to be trusted, LG will be expanding its L-series lineup further with a couple of new low-end models. The LG Optimus L4 II and Optimus L4 II Dual, as they are allegedly called, were just exposed by a source with a good track record. 

These two Optimus L4 II models are very similar in terms of hardware specs, with one of them being a single-SIM device, while the other is a dual-SIM smartphone. The latter has four capacitive buttons underneath the screen, while the former sticks to LG's now traditional, 3-button arrangement.

According to the source, the LG Optimus L4 II packs a 3.8-inch IPS LCD screen with resolution of 320 by 480 pixels. That translates into a mediocre pixel density, but at least we can hope that its colors and viewing angles will be acceptable. A 1GHz, single-core SoC by MediaTek is running the show – the MT6575, paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of expandable storage. On the back of the LG Optimus L4 II is said to reside a 3-megapixel camera with a BSI sensor and LED flash, but a front-facing cam is nowhere to be seen. Battery life is likely to be good as the smartphone will come with a 1700mAh battery, which is very decent for its class. Android 4.1 is expected to be pre-loaded on the Optimus L4 II with the usual visual modifications applied by LG. 

Clues lead us to believe that the LG Optimus L4 II will be released in Russia, but chances are that other markets will follow suit. The dual-SIM model is rumored to be carrying a $190 price tag at launch, while the single-SIM variant should retail for about $174 off-contract. Expect seeing these on shelves by the end of June.

Looks nice but why don't these android manufacturers make an android phone with similar specs like Lumia 520
1ghz dual core processor adreno 305 gpu
512 Mb ram
480x800 resolution
5mp decent camera
i say it will be cool

exatly what i was thinking, and for android low end andsetsminimum specs should include dual core processor, 1 gig of ram,screen size 4 inches the least, 5 mp front cam,with a vga front cam and a 1800 mah battery backup. cost of hardware is getting a little bit cheaper they could even use mtk chipsets in side to lower cost like what Blu is doing

Indeed, choosing this L4 II over Lumia 520 is a no-brainer decision when 520 has superior specs for the same price.
I still have no idea why no android OEMs can give us that kind of similar spec as Lumia 520 at the same price as the Lumia 520.
