LG announced today a new budget-friendly Android handset called the Optimus L4 II (also known as the E440), which we’ve been catching glimpses of as early as May. The modest device packs a single-core 1GHz MediaTek processor, 512MB or RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable via a MicroSD slot).
HTC has another One variant coming down the pipeline, and this one has a dual-SIM option. The device, which has a removable back, has access to a microSD slot as well. You’ll be able to switch easily between SIMs and have up to 64GB storage.
However, the new variant does not have LTE support. Otherwise, the device is exactly the same.
We finally got some official news surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2‘s availability, and whether or not it will come equipped with a dual-core or quad-core processor. When we first heard about the new slate from Samsung we couldn’t help but think that is wasn’t a very big improvement over the original Galaxy Tab 10.1, sporting only a 1GHz dual-core processor.
Unsurprisingly, infamous twitter user @evleaks has been gracious enough to list the specs of the new Motorola X phone, and its looking to be a solid mid-to-high end device. The Google-owned company has put together a phone running Android 4.2.2 Jellybean powered by 2GB of RAM, a dual-core 1.7GHz MSM8960 Pro processor, and comes with 16GB of internal storage.
Those of you who are looking for an affordable device that will easily fit in your pocket should check out the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2. It’s now available for pre-order in the UK from Mobile Fun, for £179.95 (approximately $282 US).
The L7, LG’s top model of the new L-series slim devices to hit the market is going on sale in the UK with online retailer, Handtec. Now’s your chance to snatch the ICS 4.0, 4.3″ IPS LCD displayed handset for a reasonable £233.99 ($367).
