When LG took the wraps off of its Optimus L-Series II family of phones only the L7II had any launch details attached to it. Now the company say its smaller L3II will debut in Brazil this week with other unspecified Central / South American, European, Asian Middle Eastern and African markets on deck. Bucking the bigger-is-better / more-power trend, the 3.2-inch handset contains just a Snapdragon S1 CPU and 512MB of RAM to push its Android Jelly Bean software and a QVGA res screen. If the combination of dual-SIM capability, smaller size and budget-friendly specs appeal to you (and it's headed to your area) check out our hands-on experience from earlier this week at Mobile World Congress for more information.
LG OPTIMUS L3II MAKES ITS WORLD DEBUT
Second Device in LG's New L SeriesII Launches In South America
BARCELONA, Feb. 27, 2013 – Hot on the heels of the Optimus L7II launch in Russia, LG Electronics (LG) announced that the second model in its new generation Optimus L SeriesII will make its world debut in Brazil this week. This will be followed by single and dual SIM models being introduced in the other markets of South and Central America, Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa.
Optimus L3II advances the styling and convenience of the original Optimus L3 smartphone with a new flair that complements its user experience. The Optimus L3II continues LG's design heritage with four new elements that make the device eye catching and fun to use: Seamless Layout, Laser Cut Contour, Radiant Rear Design, and colorful Smart LED Lighting on the home button.
Beyond the phone's sleek exterior, Optimus L3II offers an upgraded user experience with a stylish makeover. Thanks to its larger capacity battery, Optimus L3II now offers QuickMemo with Overlay mode - previously only available in LG's premium smartphones - to boost productivity. QuickMemo with Overlay mode allows users to jot notes on a transparent "layer" while still being able to view another screen in the background. This eliminates the need to split the screen and allows both QuickMemo and the other application to be viewed in full-screen mode simultaneously.
"The Optimus L3II is a versatile phone for the smart and stylish individual," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "Its improved user experience makes this an attractive device for customers who want to express their sense of style without sacrificing functionality."
The Optimus L3II comes in four colors tailored to users' individual styles: indigo black, white, pink and titan. Prices will be announced at a later date.
