Rumor: Bell to launch LG Optimus L5 for a mere $199.95 off contract


The LG Optimus L5 may not be the device of your dreams, but it will definitely be a stunning deal with a rumored price of $199.95 off contract. This is exactly what Mobile Syrup’s sources claim the Bell device will cost (rumored to launch this July 10th). It happens to be a great offer for the mid-range smartphone featuring Android 4.0.3, an 800 MHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.

There is a bit of the discrepancy in the leaked screenshot, though. The price seems to be consistent under all 1, 2 and 3-year terms as well. This makes us suspect that this rumor may be inaccurate, or the price may simply be used as a place-holder until Bell decides what the appropriate price-range for each contract term.

As mentioned, the device is not your powerhouse, but not everyone needs a super phone. And personally, the design of the L Series has always called my attention. If the device does happen to come with a $200 price free of contract, we are sure many of our Canadian neighbors will be jumping all over it. Would you?

    How come this 800 MHz phone can run ICS but yet manufacturers say 1 ghz phone (Galaxy S I) can’t?

    • Terrormaster

      And how come Sony can’t get ICS running stable on the Xperia Play. Simple, there’s no profit in free OTA upgrades. They would rather you go out and buy the Galaxy S III.

    • ntegrit

      Maybe because it isn’t saddled with TouchWiz.

    • TBN27

      Because this phone has the ram to handle it. Where the Galaxy S doesn’t.

    • EarlyMon

      More ram maybe. The SGS would need to support both ICS and TouchWiz in that space, maybe not easy.

    • Canon User

      Because not all MHz are created equal. Educate yourself before whining.

  • Aaron soles

    I’m surprised HTC is bringing ics to the thunderbolt
