LG is also offering features such as LQuickMemo, Quick Button and Safety Care in the new devices. QuickMemo allows users to capture and share handwritten ideas with others using just a fingertip. Quick Button enables customers to personalize a hotkey to launch any app such as the camera, browser, music player or even QuickMemo. Safety Care offers three options – Emergency Call Forwarding, Phone Non-Usage Notice and My Location Notice – which can be programmed to contact a loved one in case of an emergency.

The L Series was widely successful for LG, with the company selling over 10 million Optimus L Series phones in the first 10 months.

The L series II will come in both Dual-SIM and single SIM versions.

“LG has a history of pushing the envelope when it comes to style and Optimus L SeriesII builds on this heritage of design innovation,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “By evolving the sophisticated style and premium features of the original Optimus L Series, its sequel is expected to continue the popularity of the L Series around the world.”

The Dual SIM version of the Optimus L7II will be the first of the new series to launch, making its debut in Russia this week.
