It appears that LG’s Optimus L7 launched in 2012, will soon have a sequel – the LG Optimus L7 II Dual. The first country to get the new phone is Russia and other markets should follow soon. The handset will be available some time in February for a price of 2,990 RUB which is around $430 unlocked and off contract. The Optimus L7 II Dual is expected to be presented at Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona later this month, but we can already see how it looks thanks to the images posted on Hi-Tech website.
What we know about the LG Optimus L7 II Dual
The LG Optimus L7 II Dual will come with a set of improved specs and redesigned case. The handset will be available in two color variants, black and white, and as the name suggests, it will offer dual SIM support, so you will be able to use two SIM cards at the same time. This feature is especially attractive for folks who travel frequently or simply like to keep tabs on the costs as it will allow you to switch between different carriers in order to optimize expenses.
According to the rumors, the phone will sport a 4.3-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, dual-core 1 GHz processor, 8 megapixel rear camera with 720p video recording, and a 2,460 mAh battery. There is no mention of internal memory, but we believe the Optimus L7 II Dual offers microSD support so the lack of storage space should not be an issue. The device will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from day one and will be pre-loaded with LG Quick Memo, and LG QuickTranslator.
