LG announced three new Optimus L Series II smartphones (L5, L7, L3), which embody the beauty of the first L Series but with a more refined touch. The design philosophy of L Series II has been enhanced to include four new design elements: Seamless Layout, Laser Cut Contour, Radiant Rear Design and Smart LED Lighting on the home button.
L Series II also offers an expanded set of user-convenient features including those unique to LG smartphones such as QuickMemo, Quick Button and Safety Care. QuickMemo allows users to capture and share handwritten ideas with others using just a fingertip. Quick Button enables customers to personalize a hotkey to launch any app such as the camera, browser, music player or even QuickMemo. Safety Care offers three options — Emergency Call Forwarding, Phone Non-Usage Notice and My Location Notice — which can be programmed to contact a loved one in case of an emergency.
User experience is enhanced with the high-resolution IPS display and extended capacity battery in the Optimus L Series II. What’s more, Dual SIM versions of the Optimus L Series II smartphone will enable customers to use one device for both business and personal calls.
“LG has a history of pushing the envelope when it comes to style and Optimus L Series II builds on this heritage of design innovation,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “By evolving the sophisticated style and premium features of the original Optimus L Series, its sequel is expected to continue the popularity of the L Series around the world.”
The Dual SIM version of the Optimus L7 II will be the first of the new series to launch, making its debut in Russia this week. The Optimus L7 II will include LG’s unique UX features such as QSlide and QuickTranslator. Availability of the Optimus L3 II with 3.2-inch QVGA IPS display and 1,540mAh battery and the Optimus L5 II with a larger 4.0-inch WVGA display and 1,700mAh battery will be announced at a later date.
