LG is trying to get some market share in the ever expanding world of Android smart phones. The company has already released a bunch of Android smart phones this year, and here is a new one. Though we have heard of the LG Optimus L5 before, the device is being released now. The smart phone is designed to stand out in the crowd. While majority of the Android smart phones come with rounded edges, the LG Optimus L5 targets people with a different sense of fashion with its sharp edges. It definitely looks different. But this is not really a high performance device, right now, you can call it an entry level or mid range Android smart phone.
The LG Optimus L5 comes with a 4 inch HVGA display, a 5 mega pixel rear facing camera with LED flash, 4 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot of increase the memory, dual SIM card slots for the Asian, CIS, Middle East, Central, and South American regions, LG’s own Tag & Play NFC tags for the European and North American regions, and the latest Android 4.0 operating system, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. Thought the specs seem okay (apart from the 4 inch display and the 5 mega pixel camera0, the processor really takes the attention off the smart phone. The LG Optimus L5 will be running on a Cortex A5 800 MHz processor, really not what the market demands today.
One more attraction is that the LG Optimus L5 is just 9.5 mm thin, or thick. But this will interest only those people who do not need high processing powers or who are coming into the world of Android for the first time and want to try out the platform before investing in a more powerful device.
LG will be releasing the Optimus L5 in the UK, Germany, and France to begin with. People in these countries can expect the device to land in stores this month. The CIS, Middle East and Asian market will follow, and later the American markets will get the device. So hold on tight till its your turn.
