LG has already brought its innovative and premium smartphone called the G Flex smartphone in India. The maker of the world's first curved "self-healing" display has yet again made a remarkable move as it has listed a handset which can accommodate three SIM cards on its official Brazil site.
The smartphone comes dubbed as Optimus L1 2 Tri. Last year the second best South Korean smartphone maker launched its Optimus L1 2 which can probably be called as the predecessor of the latest triple SIM supporting device. The LG Optimus L1 2 Tri comes in Black, White and Pink color variants and is priced around 340 Brazilian Real which roughly translates to Rs. 8,000 in Indian currency.
In case you are already trying to figure out its specs, it is needed to be said first that this is not a high-end handset but an entry level smartphone with a average specs, and could most probably fall in the range below Rs. 9,000. The LG Optimus L1 II Tri (E475) comes with a 3.0-inch capacitive touch screen display offering a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels.
It is powered by 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225A processor paired with an entry level 512MB RAM and luckily it seems like it runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) Operating System.
There is a 2 MP fixed focus camera at the rear side of the smartphone which can only shoot video in VGA quality. Sadly, it lacks a front-facing snapper. The device measures 102.6 x 58.9 x 13.3mm and weighs 104.6 grams.
LG has at least offered a generous 4GB of internal memory which can also be expanded up to 32 GB with microSD card.
Apart from the smartphone's unique capability to support triple SIM quality, which comes with a dedicated SIM switch key, the device also comes with a set of connectivity options including 3G (HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and aGPS. The device is powered by a 1540 mAh battery.
Although the device comes with a triple-SIM slot, when one takes a look at the specs, it's not as impressive as its other devices. Moreover, if the triple SIM support functionality is removed from the device, it will end up becoming a low-end smartphone. Although there is no word on the India launch of the device but if it somehow manages to arrive in India, it will be similar to the devices from Micromax and other domestic smartphone makers.
