The LG L Series III was announced at the MWC back in February and included three devices, the L40, L70 and L90, or so we though at first. Apparently, the family has one more member, the LG L65. The phone was leaked by @evleaks on Wednesday and didn’t take long to go official. The LG L65 Dual is now on sale in Russia where is can be had for 7490 RUB, which is about $210 at current exchange rate. It looks like a LG L65 single-SIM version is also in the works.
LG L65 Dual vs. L65 Single-SIM Phone
True to its name, the LG L65 Dual supports dual-SIM, with both slots working on GSM networks. Just like the rest of the L Series III, the L65 is a mid-range combining decent specs with attractive design. The phone appears to be a close cousin of the L70, both offering very similar hardware and sharing the same size of 127.2 x 66.8 x 9.6 mm at 126 grams. The L65 features a 4.3-inch IPS LCD display with a WVGA 480 x 800 resolution which works out to a pixel density of 217 ppi.
Powering the phone is a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor paired with 1 GB of RAM, a combination that we have already seen on the LG L70. Internal memory doesn’t shock with its 4 GB of storage capacity, however, there is a microSD slot compatible with up to 32 GB cards.
In addition to dual-SIM, other connectivity features of the L65 Dual include Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/AGPS, EDGE/GPRS and micro-USB. The phone is equipped with 5-megapixel rear camera with auto focus. On the front panel, right above the screen, sits a 0.3-megapixel secondary camera. Power is delivered by a 2100 mAh removable battery. The LG L65 runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box with LG-exclusive Knock Code feature and is available in to color options – white and black.
Users can also pick up a smart cover designed for the L65 Dual. Known as Quickwindow, the cover allows access to the clock, weather and music and lets you accept or reject calls without having to flip the cover open.
