LG Bello II announced with low-end specs, Android 5.1.1


The LG Bello II has gone official today as the latest entry-level smartphone from the Korean manufacturer, a year after the original Bello was announced. Right off the bat, the only notable thing about the Bello II is that it runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the latest version of the OS that isn’t even on most flagship smartphones out there.

The software experience is provided via a 5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 854×480 pixels, with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor ticking away inside. The phone also has 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (and a microSD slot), an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, NFC connectivity, and a 2,540 mAh battery. The 5 MP front camera is another feature that stands out considering the overall hardware, and the phone also comes with software features like Gesture Shot and Selfie Flash for the camera.

The Bello II will be named differently in a couple of markets – it will be dubbed the Prime II in Brazil and Chile and the LG Max in Mexico, India and the CIS region. Availability will begin this month in Latin America and India, followed by Europe and CIS through the third quarter. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but LG will have to go extremely low if it intends to see consumers picking up the device over alternatives.
