Dual SIM functionality in a phone is a convenient feature for users out there that like to manage their phone numbers in a collective manner but some manufacturers has stretched that concept a little bit further with devices that are built triple SIM setup. Yes, you read that right: three SIM cards inside one phone.
LG is one of the manufacturers that have churned such devices for quite some time and the LG Optimus L1 II Tri E475 for Brazilian market is one of the latest tri-SIM device under its wing. Running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, users are able to switch between SIM cards through the dedicated button right on front of the phone.
Outside of its tri-SIM capability, the 3G-enabled LG Optimus L1 II Tri can be categorized as a low-end smartphone though. We are looking at 3-inch 320×240 TFT display, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225A-AB single-core processor, 512MB RAM, and 4GB worth of internal memory. Powered by a 1540 mAh battery, the LG Optimus L1 II Tri also comes with a 2-megapixels rear camera which features voice-activated auto snap feature that LG called as the “Cheese Shot”.
Priced at around USD 127 (RM 420), we have no clue if LG has any plans to release it outside of Brazil…but then again, would you buy one if the company release it here in Malaysia?
