Though not expected to be the flashiest thing LG will show off at Mobile World Congress, the followup to last year’s stylish L Series is starting to take shape. We can expect to see the Optimus L3 II, Optimus L5 II, and Optimus L 7 II as part of the new lineup.
The three devices will follow the same format as their predecessors. While all are designed as low-cost Android options, the most budget friendly will be the LG Optimus L3 II, which is said to feature a 1GHz CPU and 5MP camera — both upgrades from last year. The Optimus L5 II will also get a 1GHz CPU of the ARM Cortex-A9 variety.
The Optimus L7 II will rock a dual-core 1GHz processor, 8MP camera, and a 4.3-inch display. All three phones would run Jelly Bean out of the box. The L5 and L7 are pegged for dual-SIM variants as well.
Though the L Series tends to fly under the radar compared to devices like the Optimus G Pro (which is rumored to debut with a 5.5-inch display at MWC), the handsets are quite popular around the globe. LG has sold over 10 million Optimus L devices since the lineup was introduced last year.
