LG Optimus L7 Successor Leaked

Pictures showing off a new LG handset have been leaked online.

The LG Optimus L7 hasn’t been around on our shelves for too long, but already there are rumours circulating about a successor to the powerful quad core handset.

This rumour comes in the form of a leaked picture of the mysterious device that has somehow found its way onto the Russian technology website Hi.tech.mail.ru, and it is possible that this new phone is simply the anticipated LG Optimus L7 II dual.

Unfortunately the picture doesn’t tell us anything about the handset itself. However, rumours have suggested that the new LG will be powered by a 1GHz dual core processor and a 2,460 mAh battery.

It is also suggested there will be an 8 megapixel rear facing camera with the ability to record 720p video. It is also said that the phone will run on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and come with LG’s own brand of user interface.

On the back of the handset is a dual SIM card slot which will allow the user to alternate networks. It will even be possible to do this without opening up menus on the settings as there is a hardware SIM swap key to make changing SIMs easier than ever.

According to the Russian network, the Optimus L7 successor is priced at 12,990 rubles, which is approximately £273, which is a little bit more expensive than the LG Nexus 4.

However, this pricing could very well change as more details emerge.
