LG Optimus L5 to complete the L-style ensemble later this month

The final middle piece of LG's L-style puzzle, the 4-inch Optimus L5, is pegged to arrive in the UK, Germany and France in the next two weeks. The sub-10mm phone packs the same design elements seen in the rest of the L-style series, meaning it'll also look uncannily similar to both the incoming Optimus Vu and Prada Phone 3.0. Aside from Android 4.0, the mid-ranger doesn't house that many surprises underneath those designer lines. Ho-hum specifications include a single core 800MHz processor, 4GB of (microSD-expandable) internal storage and a 5-megapixel camera. Once it's toured Western Europe, the device has plans to see the Middle East, Asia, Central and South America, although LG isn't saying whether the Optimus L5 has plans for a visit to North America.

Elegant and Thin, Newest LG Smartphone is Slimmest in Class

SEOUL, June 17, 2012 – The LG Optimus L5, one of LG's stylish, high fashion L-Series smartphones, will make its global debut in key European markets this month. The device will be available in the U.K., Germany and France, followed by markets in CIS, Middle East and Asia before crossing the ocean over to Central America and South America.

Running on the Google's latest Ice Cream Sandwich Android operating system, the LG Optimus L5 offers the best-in-class 4.0-inch display for a roomy and error-free mobile experience.

"The LG Optimus L5 is a very balanced smartphone that offers a great combination of design, display, performance, battery life and price that many will find very attractive," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
