All handsets from LG’s second generation L-series are now officially announced. After the small Optimus L3 II and its bigger brother Optimus L7 II launch, the time has come for the middle child of the L II family to be presented to the world – the LG Optimus L5 II . The handset should be available soon first in Brazil, and then in other South American countries, as well as Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. We are still waiting for details about pricing but our guess is that it may cost around $200, since the bigger and better spec’ed Optimus L7 II is priced at $250.

Additionally the phone will be available in hybrid dual-SIM edition which will look a little bit different from the orginal single SIM version (see photo).

In terms of memory there is 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory. By today’s standards it is not too much but luckily there is a microSd card slot for storage expansion up to 32 GB. The Optimus L5 II also offers Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS and a 1,700 mAh battery.
The handset runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and comes with QuickMemo, Quick Button which allows users to customize the Hotkey to launch various functions such as camera, internet, music or any other app, and many more.
