LG’s Optimus L smartphones might have not made many waves in North America, but in Europe and Asia they apparently sold like hotcakes. It therefore shouldn’t come as a surprise that LG is planning to reboot the series, though nothing’s official at this point.
The first member of the supposed follow-up family has been leaked courtesy of a Russian website that says it already knows the phone’s name and price. The Optimus L7 2 Dual (great name, LG, by the way) should start selling sometime next month for around 13,000 rubles ($433).
That’s not a whole lot, but in all honesty the L7 2 Dual doesn’t look too special. The design is uninspired (to be kind), while the rumored spec sheet includes a 1 GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch IPS display, an 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 2,460 mAh battery. Oh, and dual SIM. And Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Wait, that actually doesn’t sound too bad, does it? Especially the software, cam and battery. Now if only LG would rebrand the phone and maybe give it a facelift…
