LG announced the LG Bello II, a mid-range smartphone with a 5-inch display, a 5 megapixel selfie camera, 3G connectivity and Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The LG Bello II is the successor to last year’s LG L Bello (also known as the LG L80 + in some countries) and is launched this month in South America and India. In the third quarter the unit will be also available in Europe. In other markets, the Bello II also appears under the names LG Prime II and LG Max.
The Bello II has a 5-inch FWVGA display (854 x 480 pixels) and a metallic edge. The 2,540 mAh (removable) battery provides a decent life. The 5-megapixel camera selfie includes features like Gesture Shot (take a selfie with a hand movement) and selfie Flash (display functions as a flash for portraits). The device runs on Android 5.1 lollipop and comes with 8GB of memory, expandable via microSD. The specifications include a quad-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera on the back and support for Bluetooth 4.0, 3G / HSPA + and aGPS.
“The LG Bello II brings unprecedented value to 3G markets, which still account for a significant 40 percent of smartphone markets. With its 5-megapixel selfie camera, large display and familiar features, the LG Bello II is a great balance of form, function and price, which is why we expect to be even more successful than its predecessor.” said Juno Cho, CEO of LG Electronics.
The LG Bello II comes in a single or a dual-sim-sim variant and is available in white, gold or silver colors.
