Right before MWC started this year, LG showed us its new L series of smartphones, which feature decent specs and great design (at least that’s what LG thinks) for affordable prices. Of those devices, the Optimus L3 is the lowest-end, and, as such, should be the cheapest. However up until now we didn’t know exactly how cheap.
Turns out LG may have a best seller on its hands, if the latest info coming from Greece via Techblog will hold true for the rest of Europe.
In Greece, the LG Optimus L3 will become available in a few days apparently, for the low price of €139. It’s unclear if that’s before taxes (so sans VAT), though even if it is, the final price should be well under €200 everywhere in Europe.
Yet if the €139 is inclusive of taxes, and it will be similar in other countries, then LG should get ready to sell a whole lot of these smartphones. Low-end or not, the Optimus L3 brings an interesting design to a price point which was so far reserved for cheap-looking devices.
The Optimus L3 should make its way to other countries in Europe very soon. It has a 3.2-inch 240×320 touchscreen, an 800 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 3.15 MP camera, microSD card support, 3G/HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,500 mAh battery.
