Yes, as expected, the LG Optimus L5 is coming to Canada and heading for the shelves at Bell. The L5 is a “perfect upgrade for those looking to replace their voice and messaging phones” and will officially be available on July 10th, possibly for $200 outright. This is an entry-level Android that will run OS 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4-inch display (480×320), 5MP camera, 800Mhz processor, 1500mAh battery and come with a couple features that some other Android don’t have. First, you’ll get clearer voice calls as the L5 has HD Voice. Next, Bell states the Optimus L5 will be NFC-enabled and will come with LG NFC Tag/Sticker in the box.

More soon!
(Thanks tipster!)

    If the One V can be sold for $175 I expect this at like 125 at the maximum. The only thing this one has over the V is NFC and i would prefer a good screen and processor over NFC

    I lost all respect for LG when they never updated the Optimus Pad. LG should be avoided at all costs. Just my opinion

    I’m with Sean. LG is notorious for release orphan phones — that is phones that never receive a single update. I’ve owned two of them; never again.

    Let’s hope this unit does not power cycle itself and has a decent battery

    • Joe

      Are you serious? Have you seen both of these phones? You are wondering what will happen to the Cadilac (Samsung Galaxy S3) sales when the Yugo (LG Optimus L5) comes out???
