LG have announced that their LG Optimus L3 handset will hit UK stores in March, just a few short weeks after first being revealed at Mobile World Congress 2012.
The lowest-spec phone in LG’s newly-christened L-Style design series, the L3 sports a 3.2 inch touchscreen, 800MHz processor, 3MP camera and Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread).
“We’ve always believed in the need to offer a variety of smartphone options and many people simply don’t want to pay for a lot of extra bells and whistles.” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company.
“We think the Optimus L3 offers all of basic smartphone-related benefits but in a more premium package that hasn’t been seen before on a smartphone in this category.”
Aiming at the youth or budget market, the phone is expected to retail SIM-free for around £130. Following a limited European launch in March, the L3 will hit Russian, Asian and US stores soon afterwards.
