LG unveiled a new low-end Android Jelly Bean smartphone in Brazil – LG Optimus L1 II Tri. Yeah, the name is weird, but this little fella’ can take three different SIM cards at once! That’s right, with L1 II Tri – you can be connected to three different networks and switch between them by simply pressing a dedicated button.
As you would imagine, we’re talking about a variant of the existing Optimus L1 II. It comes with a 3-inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) screen, 512MB of RAM, 1540mAh battery and 4GB of expandable storage (with microSD cards). There’s also a 2-megapixel camera on the back that features the so called “cheese shot.” This capability allows users to take photos simply by saying “cheese” or any other word of their choice.
As for the price – the LG Optimus L1 II Tri is selling for $127, which is a lot of money considering the hardware it packs under the hood. Then again, there are really not that many phones that can take 3 SIM cards at once, right?
Finally, we’ve no idea whether LG will sell this phone in other markets. Our guess is that it will be launched in some developing economies and perhaps parts of Eastern Europe…
