LG has today confirmed it will be releasing an updated range of L Series Android smartphones at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona later this month.

The new devices are slight specification upgrades to existing L-Series models, rather than completely new phones. They will carry the rather uninspiring "L Series II" name.

The new devices include the dual SIM capable Optimus L7 II, the Optimus L5 II and the Optimus L3 II. The L7 II will be officially unveiled in Russia this week, while the L5 II and L3 II handsets will be revealed at a later, unannounced date.

LG says the Optimus L7 II has a 4.3in IPS display with a resolution of 800x480, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and 4GB of internal memory. The full range of L Series II smartphones will run the 4.1 Jelly Bean version of Google's Android platform.

The aggressively priced L Series range of Android smartphones were first launched in Australia last July, alongside a marketing campaign spearheaded by TV personality and former Miss Australia, Erin McNaught.

LG claims to have sold 10 million Optimus L Series phones globally in the first 10 months, but has not revealed any Australian sales figures.

MWC is the world's largest mobile trade show and traditionally sees most major mobile manufacturers release new smartphones. It is held annually at the end of February.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
