We know, LG’s Optimus L reboot turned out to be fairly unimpressive, but folks looking for style and not much oomph should still give the L3 II, L5 II and L7 II a chance. Out of the trio, the middle child was the only one left hanging, after the L3 II landed in Brazil a couple of weeks ago and the L7 II in Germany about two days back.
But now it’s time for the L5 II to also hit the ground running and the first stop in its worldwide tour is going to be hot and sunny Brazil. No words on pricing just yet, but expect the 4-incher in store shelves by the end of this week for the equivalent of $250 tops.
Only the dual-SIM version will be made available for now in Brazil, with both single and dual-SIM models set to debut “soon” in other South American countries, as well as Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
The stylish mid-ranger (low-ender?) is to be sold in several different color combos, including “Indigo Black”, Titan, White and Pink. Here’s a recap of the fellow’s specs, which shouldn’t be judged harshly, at least until we find out something clear and official on pricing:
- 4-inch 800 x 480 pix res display
- Single-core 1 GHz Mediatek MT6575 processor
- PowerVR SGX531 GPU
- 512 MB of RAM
- 4 GB of on-board storage
- MicroSD card slot for expanding the memory with up to 32 GB
- 5 MP rear camera with LED and auto focus
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
- 1,700 mAh battery
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- 117.5 x 62.2 x 9.2 mm dimensions
What do you guys think of the LG Optimus L5 II? Is it going to be worth your trouble?
