LG's 'L-Style' Android Phones Focus on Design
LG today revealed a few details about its new L-Style series of Android smartphones. According to LG, design and attention to detail are at the heart of the L-Style phones, which are based on five aesthetic elements: modern square, floating mass technology, seamless layout, harmonized design contrast, and sensuous slim shape. LG took these concepts to craft phones that are thin, easy to hold, have sensible key layouts, and are pleasing to look at. The models, Optimus L3, Optimus L5, and Optimus L7, have 3.2-, 4.0-, and 4.3-inch displays, respectively. The L3 will launch in March with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but the L5 and L7 will launch later this year with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. LG said more details about the L-Style phones will be made available during the Mobile World Congress trade show, scheduled to start February 27.
