MWC 2013: LG Optimus G, Vu, F and L series hands-on

GSMArena team, 25 February 2013.


LG staff must have been charged for excess baggage on their way to Barcelona they've brought lots of new phones to MWC 2013. The LG Optimus G Pro uberphone leads the way, followed by the Vu II, but the company also fleshed out its F and L series, populated with low, mid and high-end smartphones.

The LG Optimus G Pro is not new it was already announced for Korea, Japan and North America, but now its hitting the Old Continent too. The situation with the LG Optimus Vu II is similar.

The F series are LGs new mass-market LTE-enabled phones that will capitalize on the expanding LTE market. The more upmarket LG Optimus F7 failed to attend, so we only got to see its Optimus F5 sibling. Update: the Optimus F7 was here after all - we dug it up and spend some face time with it too.

The L series are second generation devices and are getting even more affordable. All three models (L3 II, L5 II and L7 II) have dual-SIM options, which is a big deal for emerging markets.
