LG's quasi-popular L7 handset has a successor, in the form of this leaked device pictured on Russian site Hi.tech.mail.ru

Unfortunately there isn't much to go on in terms of specifications. We know from rumours the new phone features a 1GHz dual-core processor and will have a 2,460 mAh battery. Rumours also suggest an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera that can shoot 720p video. The phone is said to be running Android 4.1 with LG's own UI on top.

A dual-SIM slot in the back of the phone means you can easily swap networks. There is even a hardware SIM swap key, so you can change network without having to open up menus on the phone.

At the moment, the phone is priced at 12,990 rubles - £273 - according to the site, a touch more than the Nexus 4 say. Price in the UK could very well change, however. 

We will keep you posted on the new L-series phone as soon as more details materialise.
