As revealed about a week ago, the dual SIM edition of LG’s Optimus L5 II is designed differently from the single SIM version. It turns out it also has a different name – at least in Tawian, where the dual SIM L5 II is called LG Optimus Duet.
The same thing has happened to the Optimus L7 II: its dual SIM version looks different, and has been named Optimus Duet+.

Prices in Taiwan are as follows: Optimus L5 II – 5,990 TWD ($201), Optimus Duet – 6,990 ($234), Optimus L7 II – 7,990 TWD ($269), Optimus Duet+ – 8,990 TWD ($301). We don’t know if LG will use the Duet names in other markets, but it could certainly do so – after all, Samsung has launched dual SIM smartphones called “Duos” almost all over the world.
In any case, all four new LG Optimus handsets run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The L5 II / Duet features a 4 inch WVGA display, 5MP rear camera, 512MB of RAM, 1GHz processor, and 4GB of internal memory. The L7 II / Duet+ comes with a 4.3 inch WVGA screen, 8MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 768MB of RAM, dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor, and 4GB of on-board memory.
