Dual SIM LG Optimus L7 II with Android Jelly Bean to be released next month
LG is getting ready to launch a new dual SIM smartphone. Apparently called Optimus L7 II Dual, the handset is expected to debut in Russia starting February – and will probably be available in other markets at about the same time.
Unlike the older LG Optimus L7 (which is a single SIM handset, launched in 2012 with Android ICS on board), the new model will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from day one. It has a completely redesigned case, as you can see in the press images below.
Jelly Bean and dual SIM capabilities aside, the L7 II features a 4.3 inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, Quick Memo, dual-core 1GHz processor, 8MP rear camera with 720p video recording, and a 2,460 mAh battery. There is no word on how much internal storage the handset offers – but there should be a MicroSD card slot in there anyway, to solve any problems related to that.
In Russia, the Optimus L7 II Dual will cost 12,990 RUB – around €319 or $432. It will be released in two color versions – black and white – coming with a dedicated software key for easily switching between SIM cards.
