While we expected a new version of Android to be announced at Google I/O last month, it never really materialised. However, it seems the next iteration of the Linux-based operating system has made a blink and miss appearance on the LG Optimus L7 2 Dual, according to AndroidAuthority. A listing on LG's site for the L7 2 Dual says the phone runs “Android 4.3 Jelly Bean”. The other details of the phone listed on the site state that it has an 8-megapixel camera, dual-SIM support and a 1.0GHz dual-core processor.

This isn’t the first time Android 4.3 has made an appearance. Last month, a Nexus 7 was spotted at the Bluetooth SIG website with the elusive Android build featuring in the specifications. Not much later, we saw another report hinting at Android 4.3 being in works, followed by a video of a revamped camera interface on Android 4.3. The video showed the cosmetic changes in the camera app, with the circular touch menu being replaced by one where the icons are presented in an arc, which looks at first glance to be a more elegant solution.
The Optimus L7 2 Dual is one of the latest mid-range devices from LG and is priced at Rs 18,650. Here's a quick look at its specifications:
- 4.3-inch WVGA IPS display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels
- 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi connectivity for net access
- GPS with A-GPS
- 8-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera
- 4GB internal memory, microSD card support for up to 32GB memory
