LG Announces the Optimus L1 II Entry Level Android Smartphone

LG has been in the news lately owing to the announcement of the LG G2 smartphone. While LG has been releasing high-end phones like the G2, they’ve also announced yet another phone pretty soon that would compete with the Galaxy Y’s and Sony’s Tipos – the Optimus L1 II.

There isn’t any LG Optimus L1 but I wonder why is this called as the L1 II (it isn’t dual SIM either). The LG Optimus L1 II is as basic as it could get with a 3 inch capacitive touch screen that has a resolution of 240 by 320 pixels. It is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon MSM7225A SoC processor and 512 MB RAM. It has a 2 MP rear camera with fixed-focus and comes with a 1540mAh battery.

Complete Technical Specifications

  • 3.0-inch (320 x 240 pixels) capacitive touch screen  display
  • 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225A processor
  • Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio with recording
  • 12.2 mm thick
  • 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225A processor
  • 2 MP fixed focus camera with VGA video recording
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB of internal memory, expandable memory up to 32 GB with microSD
  • 3G (HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, aGPS
  • 1540 mAh battery

Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is available in devices of all ranges nowadays and hence people who are stuck on ICS with a low-end phone and can’t afford much would surely give this a try.

The Optimus L1 II is priced roughly at $95 off contract. It will go on sale in Vietnam, Russia, UK and India pretty soon and will be available only in black and white colors.
