The LG Optimus L5 may not be the device of your dreams, but it will definitely be a stunning deal with a rumored price of $199.95 off contract. This is exactly what Mobile Syrup’s sources claim the Bell device will cost (rumored to launch this July 10th). It happens to be a great offer for the mid-range smartphone featuring Android 4.0.3, an 800 MHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.
There is a bit of the discrepancy in the leaked screenshot, though. The price seems to be consistent under all 1, 2 and 3-year terms as well. This makes us suspect that this rumor may be inaccurate, or the price may simply be used as a place-holder until Bell decides what the appropriate price-range for each contract term.
As mentioned, the device is not your powerhouse, but not everyone needs a super phone. And personally, the design of the L Series has always called my attention. If the device does happen to come with a $200 price free of contract, we are sure many of our Canadian neighbors will be jumping all over it. Would you?
