LG E400 Optimus L3 entry level Android smartphone spotted
31 January 2012 by Olav Hellesø-Knutsen
Technical specifications of a new entry level Android smartphone from LG has been published on a Norwegian and Swedish web store.
The Optimus L3 specifications are a mixed bag. 3.2 inch display size and 240 x 320 pixels resolution belongs to the entry-level category, and so does the 3 megapixel camera. Seems like none of the major smartphone manufactures are ready to ship handset with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich quite yet.
What the LG Optimus L3 does have, is Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hotspot. And the supported network bands are also not something we often see in entry-level devices: Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G coverage in addition to HSPA with 3.6Mbps download speed.
At 144 Euro, the LG is a very cheap handset. Very few competitors exists in that price segment. But should be able to pick up some older Galaxy's and some Huawei's with Android 2.3 priced below 144 Euro.
According to the web store Cdon, the expected release date for the Optimus L3 is on February 27 which happen to be the first day of Mobile World Congress. We might hear official words about this device from LG at that time.
