A few hours ago the LG L80 was leaked on the Internet that has now proved to be accurate. LG has extended its collection of smartphones by officially announcing the LG L80 in Indonesia. The LG L80 is another handset to join the L series III mid-rangers.

The LG L80 will cost a cool IDR 2.5 million or €155 with a new two year contract, and for your money you get an Android smartphone touting a massive 5-inch WVGA IPS display.

This is powered by the impressive Qualcomm quad core processor that is also found in the LG L80, and clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM. Elsewhere there is 4GB of on board storage that can be expanded by a further 32GB thanks to microSD card support, 5-megapixel rear facing camera with LED flash, optional dual-SIM support, 3G with HSPA on SIM1, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio and a 2,540 mAh battery. It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
