It’s almost a year since we first met the LG L-style series at Mobile World Congress 2012 — the original line-up consisted of the Optimus L3, L5 and L7. And ahead of this year’s show, there are signs the Korean manufacturer could have at least one follow-up in the pipeline.
According to reports from Russian site Hi-Tech, backed up by what seem to be leaked renders of the phone, the clumsily-named “LG Optimus L7 II Dual” will be heading to Russia in late February, and it’ll pack dual-SIM capabilities. (Note the capacitive SIM-switching button on the images above.)
Other reported specs include a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch IPS display, an 8MP camera and 2460mAh battery — supposedly enough for two days per charge. On the software side, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is said to be on-board, along with LG customizations including QuickMemo, QuickTranslator and QSlide. In Russia, the phone will reportedly retail for 12,990 rubles ($432).
Assuming this information is legit, we can probably expect to see the Optimus L7 II Dual at this year’s MWC — and we imagine there’ll probably be a vanilla L7 II on display too, with a standard single SIM slot.
