After Optimus L3 E400, LG electronics added one more member to its Optimus L3 family and named it LG Optimus L3 EE405 (also known as LG Optimus L3 Dual and LG Optimus L3 DualSim). This device may look like Optimus L3 E400 but its Dual SIM facility and other enhanced features make it better than its previous version. The key features of this phone are: Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) OS, 3.2MP front-facing camera, Dual SIM, light weight etc. Let us explore the specifications of LG Optimus L3 E405 in detail.

Though, LG L3 Optimus EE405 is a dual SIM phone but, you need to switch to active SIM via capacitive key. This device is shipped in two colors: White and Black.

The first key is for Menu, second key is a Home key, third one is a Back key and the fourth one is for toggling between SIMs. On the left side you will get volume control keys.
This is a mid-range smartphone from LG so we cannot expect more in terms of camera. The new Optimus L3 E405 is equipped with 3.2MP of primary camera with autofocus and self-timer features. It offers a camera resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. This camera also offers video recording @ 24 fps.

It is good to see another version of Optimus L3 series with some advanced features, but I wish it could have latest operating system i.e. Ice Cream Sandwich and front facing camera also. As it is a mid-range smartphone, so we cannot expect more out of it.
