Indian mobile scene is finally warming up. With two back to back launches, LG will be giving the Indian market a treat of the Optimus L5 and Optimus 4X HD in a couple of weeks. According to the Business Head of LG India, Sanjay Maheshwary, both the Smartphones are bedecked in the latest technology and integration of a very intuitive user interface with fast processors. The intelligent features are encased in gorgeous looking exteriors that score high on the first look.
The Optimus L5 takes up the slot between two successful Smartphones of the L series- L3 and L7. Evidently, the blend of aesthetics and technology that is characteristic to the L series, is reflected in L5. It is perfectly comfortable to hold, with a slim profile and a sturdy grip. With 118.3 x 66.5 x 9.5mm dimensions, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor running at 800 MHz, 512 MB of RAM and 3 GB of internal memory it caters to everyone’s needs. The memory can be extended up to 32 GB with a microSD card. The 4 inch capacitive touchscreen and Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system with the Optimus UI make up for a rich user experience. The phone will be available at slightly over Rs. 13,000 soon.
LG Optimus 4X belongs to a completely different league of Smartphones. With its NVIDIA tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, it is an entry in the high-end Smartphone market of India. LG has high hopes about it, expecting it to give the likes of Samsung S III and HTC One X heady competition. It has 1 GB of RAM powered by Google Android 4.0 (Ice cream Sandwich) that would soothe a lot of picky Smartphone users. The display is top notch, with a 4.7 HD display of 1280 x 720p resolution. As is the unwritten norm with high-end Smartphones, it is quite thin too (8.9mm in thickness). The rear-facing camera of 8 megapixels is supported by a 1.3 megapixel front snapper that makes video chatting easy. Like a lot of the latest high-end Smartphones, LG Optimus 4X too has NFC capabilities along with Bluetooth 3.0. This pocket pinch of this Smartphone is a little steep, at Rs. 34,990.
With these two phones, LG hopes to stem popularity in Indian market, which still remains, in large part, unclaimed by any particular Smartphone giant. With such a huge population of mobile users to attract, the two Optimus handsets are set to create a splash.
