LG Optimus L7 sequel surfaces in Russia
LG looks set to begin the 2013 revamp of its L-series range of entry-level smartpphones. The first to surface is what may be the sequel to the <a href=" http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/02/28/our.look.at.lgs.l.style.2012.smartphone.lineup/">Optimus 7</a>, which <a href="http://hi-tech.mail.ru/news/misc/lg_optimus_l7_ii_dual.html">has been leaked</a> through Russian website <em>Hi.tech.mail.ru</em>. The Korean archrival to Samsung revealed that it sold 8.6 million Android smartphones last quarter and is aiming to build on that this quarter.<br /><br />From a tech spec standpoint, the new handset is no <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278336== http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/08/28/lg.optimus.g.stakes.claim.for.smartphone.crown/" rel='nofollow'>Optimus G</a> or <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278337== http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/14/lg.said.to.prep.new.nexus.devices.for.mwc/" rel='nofollow'>Nexus 4</a>. It runs a 1GHz dual-core processor, but centers on a 4.3-inch display. It includes an upgraded 8-megapixel rear camera capable of shooting 720p video. LG has packed in a large 2460mAh battery that is said to help keep the device powered over two days. It runs Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean,' and also supports dual-SIM cards.

There are no details on an expected international roll out, although its precedecessor reached a number of markets around the globe. News of the new handset coincides with the return of the LG Nexus 4 to the Google Play store in North America and in other markets including Australia. LG, like Samsung, is following a strategy of making Android smartphones in a range of categories to help broaden its appeal and gain market traction.
