Beefed up LG Optimus L series leak ahead of MWC announcement


LG tried their best to maintain the secrecy of its new smartphone lineup prior to their event at MWC 2013. But in the cutthroat smartphone business, sometimes even the best is not enough. Thus, here we are with full blown details about LG’s newest. Or at least a part of it.

Riding on the success of their budget friendly Optimus L-series, Samsung’s korean arch-rival has literally decided to bring more out of the same in a cautious, but effective market move. The first to crawl out of the dark is the LG Optimis L3 II. The “sequel” will feature a 1GHz CPU, improved camera (5MP) and IPS panel while maintaing the same size and aesthetic as the original L3. Next is the Optimus L5 II, upping its predecesor with a 1GHz Cortex-A9 CPU and Android 4.1.2. And last, but not least, the Optimus L7 II has grown a new CPU core, a faster Adreno 203 GPU and has 768MB RAM, while its battery has been seriously juiced up from 1600mAh to a 2460mAh unit.

While the news hardly seem very exciting, this cannot possibly be the only surprise LG has cooked up for MWC 2013.
