LG has announced that its recently-unveiled Optimus L5 will soon be available for consumers to purchase. The Optimus L5, which is a stylish mid/entry level phone will first be available in Europe later this month, with a global lunch at some point in the future. The device will first be available in the U.K., Germany, and France. The phone will then launch in CIS, Middle East and Asia, and then Central America and South America.
The Optimus L5 is powered by an 800MHz Snapdragon processor and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Other features of the Optimus L5 include NFC, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, LG’s custom Android skin, and a 9.33mm thick body.
Interestingly, although the announcement doesn’t say that the phone will launch in the U.S., it does mention that NFC will be available in the European and North American mode. We’re not sure if that’s just a typo by LG or if they do have plans on launching the phone in the U.S.
