LG Optimus L7 II launches in Germany for €249 ($324 USD)
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.

Oh come on those specs are definitely NOT midrange!!! its a damn low end phone!....mid rangers these days are the dual Snapdragons that you find in S3's, Xperias and Z10's.....and uhm....for $324 you'd better off with a 1080p generic China phone.

If the Nexus 4 was sold for $350 everywhere then there wouldn't be any need for other phones in the same price range -_- Not everybody can afford the unsubsidized price of the Nexus 4.

This phone will sell probably fro $250, which is much cheaper than the Nexus and a good price tag for a mid-low ranged smartphone. People in this site forgets too easily than prices in Europ allways include taxes, while in the US they don´t. So the correct translation is: 250€ (with taxes in Europe) = $250 (without taxes in the USA) That´s what happens in 99% of the cases, including the Nexus 4, that costs 300/350€ in Europe.

The problem with you guys, everything with lesser specs than Nexus 4 is not worth buying because Nexus 4 is so cheap, when Nexus 4 costs $600 or higher in most countries. The ignorance of you people enjoying a lot of phone subsidies especially in the USA is definitely indescribable. I might have read this "why dont buy nexus 4/7/10 when it;s so cheap" statement for hundreds of times already from various sites. Ignorance is bliss huh.
