LG updates Optimus L series for MWC 2013
LG gets ready to show off its latest improvements to the Optimus L lineup
LG is gearing up for Mobile World Congress with its updated Optimus L series. The company plans to show 'em off at the event, slated for Feb. 25 through Feb. 28 in Barcelona. To signify its improvements, LG will add "II" at the end of each handset's name -- e.g. LG Optimus L3II, L5II and L7II. The latter is expected to pack the most punch out of the lineup.
The L7II will feature a 4.3-inch WVGA IPS screen, 1GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of storage (expandable via a microSD card) and an 8-megapixel camera. It will run on Android 4.1 Jelly bean -- not the latest version of Google's OS, but we can save those complaints for when Key Lime Pie finally (FINALLY) hits the market (most likely during Google's I/O developer's conference in May).
The L5II, on the other hand, will have a slightly smaller screen at four nches, while the L3II gets seriously down-sized to 3.2-inches. Details -- including pricing and availability -- are sparse at the moment, but all will be revealed during MWC 2013, so mark your calander and check back soon.
We've also heard recently that LG and Google could be prepping a follow up to the popular Nexus 4 handset, which runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (and is on sale for $50 at T-Mobile through Feb. 18). The rumored Nexus 5 would purportedly run on Android Key Lime Pie and would feature a Snapdragon 800 processor, 18-megapixel camera and a 3,000mAh battery.
