LG is planning to announce an entry level Optimus series smartphone – Optimus L3 E400, at the Mobile World Congress 2012 starting February 26 in Barcelona, Spain.
The news came after Swedish online retailer CDON listed a handset bearing the name LG Optimus L3 E400 with Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system on its website.
This Optimus L3 smartphone features a 3.2-inch touchscreen display and 3 megapixel camera. LG is expected to launch Optimus L3 in Europe for 145 Euros (Rs 9,440 approximately).
LG is also expected to announced the Optimus 3D successor at the event.
Stubby and block design bearing Optimus L3 E400 features a 3.2-inch touchscreen display supporting 320×240 pixel resolution. We expect it to be a capacitive touchscreen.
There are no details about the processor but we can fairly assume it to be clocked at 650 MHz or 800 MHz mostly. At the back lies a 3 megapixel camera to click decent quality photos and micro SD card slot to add up to 32 GB memory card.
Physically, the smartphone resembles Nokia Lumia 800 from front and bit of HTC Hero from the rear side. Considering the price, this LG smartphone would be slotted under the Rs 10,000 bracket.
LG will have the Optimus L3 along with the Optimus Net and Optimus Hub. It will also face competition from Samsung’s current entry level Android favorite Galaxy Y and other Galaxy series models.
