Bloody hell, someone didn’t get the less is more memo. Last week I wrote about LG’s expected Mobile World Congress arsenal, including quad-core, autostereoscopic, Windows Phone and smartphone-tablet hybrid action. Phew.
As if that wasn’t enough, a further three (you heard me) smartphones have now been detailed ahead of Mobile World Congress.
They are the LG Optimus L3, L5 and L7, weighing in at 3.2, 4 and 4.3in respectively, and mark the debut of Lucky Goldstar’s new ‘L-Style’ series. As the name suggests, it’s all about the aesthetics, baby.
All three of the new L-Style smartphones have a textured back that’s intended to feel like leather, and they look decidedly like the recent LG Prada 3.0 – all rectangular with a distinct lack of curviness.
Other than that, not a great deal is known at this stage. The LG Optimus L3 will seemingly run Gingerbread (Android 2.3), while the other two – the LG Optimus L5 and LG Optimus L7 – will rock Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) out of the box.
Again, we’ll find out more about these chaps at Mobile World Congress next week.
