LG Optimus L5 Coming To Europe This Month
LG’s L-style handsets are finally being released in all corners of the globe. Now it’s the L5’s turn, which was announced to come to select European countries this month. They say the device will be released in ten days, which is very good, since many people (especially those who can’t afford the more expensive L7) are already waiting for it.
The LG Optimus L5 was announced back in February at MWC 2012 in Barcelona with the L3 and L7. It looks like a “traditional” LG smartphone, even though the manufacturer says some stylish lineaments have been added to the phone’s design to make it even more attractive. The L5 is a perfect combination of high-end software and mid-range hardware: among its key features we can mention an 800MHz Cortex A5 processor, a 4-inch HVGA touchscreen, 4GB of native storage that can be expanded up to 32GB, a 5MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash and a 1500mAh battery.
As for software, the LG Optimus L5 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with LG’s new User Experience (UX) with QuickMemoTM. The latter allows users to take notes from any screen without opening a separate application.
Besides these features, the phone comes with other specs that differ from country to country. For example,in Asia, CIS, Middle East, Central and South America the L5 will support dual-SIM cards, while in Europe and North America it will support the NFC “Tag & Play” technology.
First of all the phone will be launched in the UK, Germany and France. Afterwards they will be followed by the CIS, Middle East and Asia, while Central and South America will get it a bit later.
Updated: The LG Optimus L5 is already available in Germany via Amazon, which requires €189 for it.
