LG officially launches Optimus L3 E400 in the Philippines, priced at 5,990

We had an inkling that LG’s Optimus L3 E400 would challenge Samsung’s Galaxy Y for the budget Android crown, and we were right – the other Korean electronics firm has officially launched the Optimus L3 E400 today at Php 5,990. We got our own review device at our office the other day, so you might want to check out what we initially thought of it here.

To give the launch a bit of a momentum, LG is giving a nice Php 1000 discount for potential Optimus L3 E400 buyers today. Anyone wanting to pick up the device at a discount can do so at LG’s concept stores at the SM Mall of Asia and SM Megamall. The sale will start at 5:00 and will last for about an hour – so if you’re in the area and want to pick it up, today’s your only chance.
