MWC 2012: LG Optimus L7 P700, L5 E610 and L3 E400 preview (video)
Alongside the Optimus 4X HD, Optimus Vu and Optimus 3D Max, LG has also brought its new L-series Android handsets at MWC 2012: the Optimus L7 (model number LG P700), Optimus L5 (model number LG E610), and Optimus L3 (model number LG E400).
Part of the company’s new L Style family (which centers on design – a simple and elegant design, to be exact), the L7, L5 and L3 look the same overall, but they have different sizes and different specs.
The LG Optimus L7 leads the pack, coming with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 4.3 inch WVGA display, HSDPA 7.2Mbps, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 1GHz processor. The L7 is only 8.7mm thin, and feels like a high-end device – despite the fact that, specs-wise, it isn’t.
Here’s a quick video preview of the Optimus L7:
The Optimus L5 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, too, but it’s a tad smaller than the L7, sporting a 4 inch display with only 480 x 320 pixels (HVGA). Other features: HSDPA 3.6Mbps, NFC (only in select regions), Wi-Fi, GPS, 5MP rear camera with flash, and an 800MHz processor.
As it name suggests, the LG Optimus L3 is the tiniest among the three new handsets. It runs Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread (there’s probably no future update to Android 4.0 ICS), and features a 3.2 inch QVGA display, HSDPA 3.6Mbps, Wi-Fi, GPS, 800MHz processor, and a 3MP rear camera.
The Optimus L3 will be released first, sometime in March, for a low (and yet unknown) price. Shortly after that, the Optimus L5 and Optimus L7 will also be launched, both coming in either black, or white.
