Following the outstanding performance of the original L Series smartphones in Australia, LG has made official four new low-cost L Series Android devices for the country. The new variants are not entirely new models, though.

The devices that come with updated specifications will bear the “L Series II” name, and would come with the reputation of “a refreshed Optimus L Series II”. The range comprises L3 II, L5 II, L7 II and the L7 II Dual SIM handsets.

LG has released all five original models in Australia, but not in any other country, and they have done well so far. They are backed by the huge confidence the maker has derived from its previous models.

The updated L-Style II is in fact a modification of the entry-level Optimus L3 II, which is tagged a price of $99 exclusively through Telstra. The Optimus L3 II features a 3.2 inch screen with 240×320 resolution and a 3 MP rear facing camera with video recording facility.

The Optimus L5 II and Optimus L7 II features a 4-inch and 4.3 –inch screen respectively and have 480×800 resolution. The L5 II has a 5 MP camera and will be available for purchase at a price of $179 through Boost Mobile in July.

Meanwhile, the Optimus L7 II has an 8 MP camera  and will retail for $229 at Optus in June. The dual SIM version of this device will launch in July for $249 unlocked.

All these L Series devices run Google’s 4.1 Jelly Bean Android OS and sport LG’s UI. Also thrown in are special features such as QuikMemo, which allows users to write notes on the screen using their finger, and QuickTranslator, which lets you translate sentences and phrases using the camera that can scan text. A Quick Button than can be set to launch any app is also an added attraction. Which of these devices in the series charm you?
