LG announce the four new handsets to be added to their Optimus range
LG have a busy year ahead with four new handsets on the cards. Read on to find out more.
LG haven’t hung around to unveil their new devices at the upcoming MWC this year, and have instead released the first, and few, details about four, yes four, new handsets in their Optimus series of phones.
Starting from the cheapest model, the affordable LG Optimus L3 sports a 3.2-inch display and will be running Android Gingerbread (2.3). You’ll also find a 240 x 320 pixel resolution display, along with a 3-megapixel rear camera. Marketed as a mid-range handset, the Optimus L5 and will sport a 4-inch screen. We were also happy to hear that the L5 will ship with Ice Cream Sandwich ready and raring to go, as well as having a screen designed for ‘enhanced readibility.’The higher end device in this series will be the Optimus L7. LG have been very tight-lipped with details so far, but we can tell you it will sport a 4.3-inch display and ship with ICS.
The final device we’ve had the pleasure of hearing about is the LG Optimus VU, and on first glance, it looks remarkably similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note. This 5-inch display ‘phablet’
includes a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU, 32GB of built-in memory and a 8-mega pixel camera with full HD recording. We were a little disappointed that the Vu will ship with Android 2.3, and have a rather odd-sounding 4:3 ratio display.
