LG and US Cellular have teamed up and will finally be bringing one of LG’s new L-series “stylish” phones to the US with what we’ve previously known as the Optimus L7. The image below was quickly spotted on LG’s website and was immediately pulled, but not before the interwebs saved the image. Get ready for some LG Ice Cream Sandwich USCC.
The LG Optimus L7 isn’t anything new and this decent mid-range phone should make for a nice addition to US Cellular’s ever growing lineup of Android smartphones. The L7 should be known as the Splendor for US Cellular and comes complete with a 4.3-inch display, a 1.0 GHz single-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 4GB internal storage, and as you can see Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is on board.
Sadly we still aren’t seeing Jelly Bean devices out of the box yet, except for the Galaxy Note II, so most likely USCC customers will be waiting for that update to arrive from LG. The smartphone has been available for a few months internationally, and was initially announced back in February where we enjoyed some hands-on time with the ICS-touting device.
With the Optimus L7 being available for a few months already outside of the US, we expect this to be arriving relatively soon on US Cellular. No details, pricing, or other information has been made available at this time but we expect to hear more soon. With the device now out in the wild US Cellular should be confirming it soon. We expect it to launch sometime this month for back-to-school sales. Hopefully it comes soon and with a low price too.
