LG has just announced a brand new phone, which will probably never make it’s way into North America or even Europe for that matter. This one is a pretty low end device sporting a 3-inch 320×240 resolution display,512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and a 1540mAh battery. So basically the specs of phones about two years ago, but that’s not the story here. The story is that it has triple SIM capabilities. We’ve seen some phones with Dual-SIM capabilities already, which is pretty popular over in Asia and Africa. I’m sure a Triple-SIM capable phone would do well over there as well.
Right now, the Optimus L1 II Tri is currently listed on LG Brazil’s official website, as well some other Brazilian retailers websites. It’ll be available in white, pink and black for about $127, when converted. It’s not a fantastic device, aside from having triple-SIM capabilities on this device. Right now, LG hasn’t said if it’s coming to other countries or not, but it will probably remain in emerging markets, and not make it’s way to Canada or the US.
You can check out images of the LG Optimus L1 II Tri down below in the gallery. It appears to have a back, home, menu and a SIM card switcher. Which is quite interesting. It does appear to have the same Optimus UI that we’ve seen on the G2 and the G Flex. It does look pretty thick and have a pretty large bezel, but that’s normal on cheaper devices compared to the likes of the Moto X, Galaxy Note 3 and the LG G2. I’d love to see LG working more towards competing with the Moto G, which is a fantastic device for under $200. And is definitely better spec-ed than the LG Optimus L1 II Tri.
