LG Optimus

We already knew about the LG Optimus L3 II, L5 II and L7 II, which were all unveiled back in February. But if a new rumor proves true, apparently the LG Optimus L4 II is also in the pipeline.

The news (and photos) of the L4 II comes from Russian website Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru, and according to the sites’ sources, the phone will be released in single and dual-SIM form this June. We can’t say for sure if or when the Optimus L4 II might make its way out of Russia, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see the phone arrive to other parts of Europe and Asia.

So what does this budget phone offer? You get a 3.8-inch IPS display with a resolution of 320×480 and a 1GHz single-core Mediatek SoC with just 512MB RAM. Other specs include a PowerVR SGX531 GPU, 4GB RAM, a 3MP camera with a BSI sensor and LED flash, microSD, a 1,700 mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The specs on this phone aren’t exactly going to impress your friends, but nor do we expect that kind of performance out of a budget device. The L4 II Single is expected to cost around 5,490 RUB, or roughly $173. The dual model will be a bit pricier at 5,990 RUB, or around $189.

I understand that not everyone can afford quad-core super-phones, but it’s a bit disappointing to see smartphones still packing sub-4-inch displays and single-core processors – especially for a device that costs close to $200.

What do you think of the LG Optimus L3 II, does its specs seem worth the money, or not?
