Yesterday on their Facebook page, LG Mobile teased that something was coming today, with a heavy emphasis on "L". As promised, they revealed just what the L is today via a press release, and it turns out to be 3 new Optimus smartphones: the L3, L5, and L7. While the press release is light on actual details (but heavy on marketing mumbo-jumbo), they do reveal that the L3 will have a 3.2" screen and launch in Europe in March with Gingerbread (Android 2.3). The L5 and L7 will be 4" and 4.3" respectively, and both will pack Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and ship sometime in the first half of 2012.

What would a product reveal be without creepy pictures of models holding the phones?

Other marketing nonsense information:

L-Style’s  design philosophy is comprised of five aesthetic elements:  Modern Square
for a comfortable grip, Floating Mass Technology for a slimmer look, Seamless
for a more intuitive arrangement of keys, Harmonized Design Contrast utilizing
metallic accents and Sensuous Slim Shape that naturally draws one’s attention.

    No good LG - after you extremely poor support of the o2x, my next phone will not be from you. No way.

      Exactly! Couldn't have said it better myself! Not only did they prematurely drop support for the G2X, they made matters worse with a test build of gingerbread that became official and stripped the original camera.apk out. To add insult to injury, they EOL'd the device 8 months after release. This is a warning: Stay away from any LG made smartphones. Period.

        Their lower end stuff is pretty competitive, but that could be that people don't go in to that expecting long-term support.

    Yeah, those models are incredibly awkward. Especially the brunette.

    Yeah, I don't want 'modern square.' I want 'rounded square,' you now, like something that I can't accidentally stab myself or someone else with. Maybe LG hasn't been paying attention for a couple years, but it seriously time for them to get with it if they ever hope to compete with Samsung or HTC.

    The only reason I clicked on this article was because I saw the 3.2" part, and figured anything with that small a screen these days MUST have a keyboard.

    I was very disappointed. Thanks a lot, LG.

    Every time I see LG's name I feel like I just saw the cool group walk into the room and then right behind them is the obviously desperate loser that loiters around the cool guys in hopes that one day somebody will accidentally mistake them as being part of the same group. Just saying, they squandered a decent brand...
