Still no word on official launch
LG L-series II smartphones have started to appear in India. First and the cheapest of the series LG Optimus L3 II E435 was spotted on Flipkart without any word on release date. The product listing revealed the price of the phone to be around INR 7,899.
The phone was originally announced ahead of Mobile World Congress in February this year. It packs 1GHz processor, 3MP rear camera and 3.2-inch capacitive display with QVGA resolution. LG seems to be launching the dual-SIM variant of the phone first in the country. LG Optimus L3 II also comes with Android 4.1.2 with Optimus 3.0 UI, and 1540 mah battery.
At this pricing, the phone seems to be decent, but we would like to a higher resolution display.
Update: We also found the another phone – LG Optimus L7 II listed on the Flipkart as well. the product listing has noted the price to be INR 14,990.
There is still no word on other smartphones – L5 II release in the country. Both the phone should follow on the close heels of the Optimus L3 II and L7 II launch. The single SIM variants are also expected to release soon after and is likely to be priced lower.
