LG has revealed it is to bring its latest flagship Android handset to the UK with the LG Optimus L7 confirmed to hit British retailers later this month.

LG Optimus L7 Specs

Lining up at just 8.7mm thick, the Optimus L7 boasts a 4.3-inch WVGA display with an ultra-wide viewing angle allowing users to enjoy impressive visuals from any direction. Elsewhere a 1GHz Cortex A5 processor provides the grunt whilst a 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera offers up impressive snaps enhanced by an LED flash.

“For consumers desiring high-end style and sophistication in a smartphone, LG Optimus L7 offers beauty and performance in one smart package,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The L7 is a significant addition to our L-Series portfolio and we are confident that it'll prove highly attractive to users. We expect it to be one of our most popular smartphones.”

LG Optimus L7 Release Date and Price

With an unveiling largely overshadowed by the recent Samsung Galaxy S3 announcement, LG has failed to offer confirmed pricing information for the upcoming L7. Despite this the company has revealed that the handset has been handed an “early May” European arrival before making the trip to global markets at a later date.
