LG Bello II is an affordable selfie phone for emerging markets

A new smartphone has been launched by LG in the form of the Bello II which offers a 5MP selfie camera and a 5-inch display, and is meant for emerging markets. This device will be hitting Latin America and India in July itself, and its prices for these regions will be announced closer to launch.

The LG Bello II, which will be called LG Max in India, kicks in 3G support and is available in single as well as dual SIM options. No prizes for guessing which model will be brought into India by the company.

This phone carries onboard a 5-inch 854 x 480 pixel display. Its operations are handled by the combination of a 1.3GHz quad core processor and 1GB worth of RAM. There’s 8GB worth of storage space available on the Bello II as well, apart from a microSD card slot for further expansions.
