It’s the time to say hello to LG’s newest budget smartphone, the Optimus L3 II. But other than its low pricing, the phone doesn’t have much to impress. Like the original L3, the phone still have the same 3.2” QVGA (240 x 320) display, which translates into a disappointing pixel density, at 125ppi. However, the L3 II may use the IPS LCD panel, so it won’t be as bad as the original. The 1GHz single-core processor is good enough for basic smartphone tasks and lags will occur when users attempt to run latest Android games.
It is not clear yet whether the 5Mp camera on the back will be equipped with autofocus and LED flash. There’s also a microSD card slot that complements the 4GB of internal storage. There’s no word on the Android version used, but it won’t be too surprising to see the older Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) on board. LG has promised to release new Android smartphone models at MWC 2013 and we should also expect to see the more improved Optimus L5 II and L7 II.
