The revamped LG Optimus L series are not so impressive when it comes to technical specs, but the phones don’t look that bad. They are probably meant for people who don’t ask much of their devices, but still want to own a stylish smartphone. So, out of the three phones namely the Optimus L3 2, L5 2, and the L7 2, the only one that was left behind was the middle one. A few weeks ago, the company launched the L3 2 in Brazil and the L7 2 was released in Germany a couple of days back.
Now, the L5 2 will be available on stores and the first who will be able to buy it will be the customers in Brazil. The South Korea-based phone maker hasn’t offered details about pricing, but we expect that the 4-inch Optimus L5 2 to be available by the end of the week and it will probably cost around $250, or less.
The thing is that the only version of the device that will be launched this week in Brazil will be the dual-SIM one. Later on, the company will release both single and dual-SIM variants in other South American regions (we don’t know what countries we’ll get it, nor the exact release date). The LG Optimus L5 2 will also see the light of day in European countries, as well as in Asia, the Middle East and some part of Africa.
LG announced that the smartphone will come in several color combos such as Titan, Indigo Black, White and Pink. We don’t know exactly how to treat the handset because we don’t know its price yet, but looking at the specs it seems to be a mid-range device, with some characteristics of an entry-level phone.
In case you are not familiar with the specs of the LG Optimus L5 2, it has a 4-inch display with a pixel resolution of 800 x 480. It’s powered by a single-core 1 GHz MT6575 CPU helped by a PowerVR SGX531 GPU. The smartphone also includes 512 MB of RAM amd 4 GB of internal storage which can be expanded with a microSD card that can go up to 32 GB. The users of the LG Optimus L5 2 will be able to snap photos with a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera sporting featuring LED flash and autofocus, but it seems that the phone doesn’t come with a secondary shooter, though. In terms of connectivity, the handset boasts Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and A-GPS. There isn’t anything much to say, but that it comes with a 1,700 mAh battery and that it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
So, are you interested in buying the L5 2, or you think it’s not worth the money (no matter how cheap it is) ?
