LG Optimus L1 II: 3-inch QVGA Display, 1GHz Snapdragon Processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
LG has added a new entry to its low-end L series of smartphones: the LG Optimus L1 II. Intended for Android users with budget constraints and in developing markets, this smartphone comes equipped with rather ordinary specs and an outdated Android OS.
The LG Optimus L1 II only has the rudimentary features that users can look forward to in a budget smartphone. It can do calls, messaging, Internet browsing, and others just fine, with no remarkable performance to note. At least there’s an FM radio available for people who are still into that sort of thing.

On the bright side, the LG Optimus L1 II does come with its own unique software. Adopted from its L-series siblings are the QuickMemo and Cheese Stutter (which allows taking photos by saying the word “cheese”) apps.
The LG Optimus L1 II will sell for $95 in two color variants: black and white. It will be first available in Russia, UK, and Vietnam, with no official word on our own local availability.
LG first revealed the second series of its Optimus L line of budget smartphones last February at the Mobile World Congress. Before the announcement of the L1, there were L7 II, L5 II, and L3 II, whose numbers denote varying screen sizes. That said, the L1 is the smallest of the bunch and relatively inferior in terms of hardware specs.
