LG continues down its path of offering smartphone for all tastes with the LG Bello II.
It is an entry-level 5-inch smartphone that is more aimed at emerging markets than mature ones, but the 5-megapixel "selfie" camera on the front puts it aside from some of the rivals at the cheaper end.
The phone has a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and offers 8GB of on-board storage. That can be extended through microSD, while the rear-facing camera is only a fraction better than the one on the front, providing 8-megapixels worth of picture-snapping fun.
Screen resolution is definitely not anything to write home about, with just 854 x 480 providing just 196ppi, and the battery is a little on the light side at 2,540mAh, but the Bello II does come with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop installed, so has the latest OS from Google.
Colour options are white, titan (grey) and gold, and a version of the phone can be acquired with dual SIM capabilities.
It will be available in Latin America and India first, coming to those regions later this month, but there are plans to roll it out in Europe and CIS countries from the third quarter.
There are still plenty of phone owners in the UK and the rest of Europe happy to pay less for 3G so it could be a solution for them.
