LG played the role of the busy bee once again as the company has, and as expected, released a couple of goodies here in the Philippines. We're talking about the Optimus L7 and the 3D-capable Optimus 3D Max, both of which are now available locally for local geeks to get their hands on. How about the SRPs? We'll get to that in a bit but first, let's get to know the duo better now, shall we?
LG Optimus L7
The Optimus L7 is a mid-range device that pretty much follows on the same design principle taken by its younger and cheaper bro, the L3, and, to a certain extent, the Prada 3.0 handset. What's nice about the device is it has a 4.3-inch IPS display (480 x 800), a feature that's not normally found on handsets in its range. Running the show for the Optimus L7 is a 1GHz single-core Qualcomm chip and 512MB of RAM. Internal storage is at 4GB although you can expand it via microSD up to 32GB. We're also pleased that it comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich. It also sports a 5-megapixel camera as well as a VGA secondary shooter. A 1,700mAh battery also points to more play time on a single charge.
LG Optimus 3D Max
This one's probably the handset that will get more attention of the two, and for good reason. The Optimus 3D Max is a 3D-capable smartphone which is also deemed as the successor to last year's Optimus 3D. The good news is it now comes in a slimmer form factor compared to its predecessor which was quite bulky. The 3D feature is made possible by two 5-megapixel cameras (VGA secondary) while the combo of a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM makes sure your computing and multimedia chores will be handled seamlessly. As for eye-candy, the Optimus 3D Max packs a 4.3-inch IPS Display with Gorilla Glass which makes it also very durable. What's puzzling is that the device comes with Android Gingerbread , not Ice Cream Sandwich like in the case of the Optimus L7. We're not also sure when an ICS update will be available.
Pricing and availability
Both devices can now be purchased via LG concept stores and authorized retailers throughout the metro. The Optimus L7 goes for P15,990 while its 3D-packin' bro will cost you P11,000 more at P26,990. Check out the gallery below for press photos
