LG Optimus L7 available later this month with the L5 shortly on its way

For the last year or so, LG has really stepped it up in the Android mobile arena making a mark with their Optimus line of smartphones. The latest announcement of their new offerings showcased three devices, the LG Optimus L7, L5 and L3 that were expected to go on sale in Europe by the 1st half of 2012. Well, according to LG France, the new L7 is scheduled to hit shelves in late April with the L5 expected to follow suit in May. In case you missed the presser, the Optimus L7 will be equipped with a single-core processor, 4.3 inch screen with a floating mass display, 5 MP camera with LED flash and will be served with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The Optimus L5 will ship out with similar specs with differences being a 4 inch screen and an 800 MHz single-core processor.  Do take note that the L5 will also come with ICS on board. No pricing is available yet for the L5 but the L7 is said to be free on contract. Despite the slightly dated specs, these phones look to be very nice additions to LG’s current lineup.

About the Author: Tony Rosario

Yet another one of Krypton’s last son’s, Tony grew up in a small town not too far from Dallas, Texas. Being a lover of all things games, a good part of his childhood was spent mastering Mortal Kombat techniques and perfecting Fatalities, yet he always made time for artistic endeavors such as singing, acting and playing in rock bands. Tony graduated from the University of North Texas in Music Performance for Double Bass. He freelanced in the DFW area and taught privately for several years. During this time, he discovered the benefits a smartphone could make in his line of work, being able to respond to gig offers in a timely manner and navigate to performances with GPS, all while on the go. He did months of research, finally deciding on the Android OS. And the reason you ask? Emulators. The fact that he now had a phone, GPS system, instant messenger, mp3 player, camera and 4 different videogame consoles with 100+ games, all in a single device, was mind blowing. Tony’s new love for Android blossomed rather quickly into an obsession that landed him a job with Sprint. He now gets to play with all kinds of phones, fix them and write about them for Talk Android.
