LG Formally Announces Newest Additions To Optimus Line: L3, L5 And L7 Smartphones


We just heard about LG’s announcement of the “L-trio” recently, but now that MWC is here, it’s time to see more details of the three newest additions to the Optimus line: the Optimus L3, Optimus L5 and Optimus L7. Let’s start with the Optimus L3. It’s an entry-level smartphone featuring a 3.2-inch screen, 800MHz processor, 3MP camera, 1500mAh battery and Gingerbread 2.3. The next in line is the Optimus L5. It’s a mid-level phone featuring a 4-inch screen with a “floating mass display”, 5MP camera, NFC capabilities and oh— Android 4.0 pre-installed. The final part of the trio is the crown jewel: the Optimus L7. This is a premium phone featuring a 1GHz processor, 4.3-inch screen with a “floating mass display”, 5MP camera with LED flash and Android 4.0 as well.

The trio are expected to go on sale in Europe at some point during the first half of 2012, but no word on if/when it will be released here in the States. There’s also no word on the pricing as well, but considering the specs aren’t exactly breathtaking, we’d expect each device to be reasonably priced so it doesn’t hurt your wallet and pocketbooks too much.

    LG, your new devices are very pretty, but please, that Samsung-y button in the middle is not and it is definitely not what makes Samsung a top-seller.
