As part of its prepaid lineup, Verizon may be bringing the LG Optimus L3 back as the LG Optimus Zone. At least that’s the information we are seeing from evleaks, which has a pretty reliable track record. The smartphone will feature an 800MHz processor, 3.2-inch QVGA display, 800MHz processor, 3.15-megapixel camera and Gingerbread 2.3. Not the most interesting specs really, but with this being an older phone, I would venture to guess that this is probably going to happen. We don’t have anymore information then this, but rest assured as we hear it so will you.

LG announced today that the company has moved 10 million L-series phones worldwide comprising of the LG Optimus L3, L5, L7, and L9. While that figure may sound good, LG in fact has simply called it ‘modest.’ In business speak, that sounds as if LG didn’t quite meet sales forecasts. It’s a little confusing as they use the word ‘modest’ in the same sentence as the word ‘milestone.’ Regardless, it looks as if they have in fact reached that 10 million milestone. Their goal is to move 35 million smartphones by the end of the 2012 and without any sales figures regarding the Nexus 4, not to mention the perceived shortage; they may fall short.
Looks like we have some information about an upcoming and intriguing LG budget phone. Apparently, the LG E400— otherwise known as the “Optimus L3”— is up for pre-order online at a Swedish retailer. This retailer is listing the phone at 1,290 kr (roughly $190 US or 144 Euros). While we don’t know the complete details of the internals, we do know the phone will feature Gingerbread 2.3, a 3MP camera and a microSD card slot. Expect more information to leak out as we approach MWC.
