Renowned South Korean consumer electronics maker LG has announced the Optimus L Series II, which will be shown at Mobile World Congress this month.

Omio has already reported on this range being leaked – where the 2013 models build on from last year’s. These included the higher end L9 and L7, mid-range L5 and entry-level L3 handsets.

LG has noted that it sold more than 10 million of these devices, within the first 10 months they were made available.

The original model took design cues from the LG Prada Phone 3.0 with its L shaped form factor. This is said to have been expanded in the Optimus IIs, only with a more refined touch.

That relates to the seamless layout, laser cut contour, radiant rear design and smart LED lighting on the home button.

LG’s Optimus L7 II sits at the top of the series, with a 4.3-inch WVGA IPS display. It is powered by a dual-core 1GHz chipset, with 768MD of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and support for micro SD cards.

There is an 8-megapixel camera built in, with an LED flash and a front-facing VGA variant and a 2,460mAh battery – running from Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and with the LG UX overlay.

The L5 II has a 4-inch screen and a 1,700mAh battery, where the L3 Optimus II comes with a 3.2-inch display and a 1,540mAh power source.

Russia is getting a dual SIM version of the LG Optimus L7 II this week, and the availability of the others will be made public in due course – but they are expected in the Spring.
