LG Electronics is one of the most famous firms on the globe for a range of electronics. A new dual SIM Smartphone LG Optimus Net was introduced by LG in July, but that time LG did not give the launch date of this new Android Smartphone. Well, LG has now officially announced this version as LG Optimus Net P698. This device might be a point of attraction as there are not many dual SIM Smartphones while it comes to Android.

It will be called as the LG Optimus Net Dual in Brazil and as the LG Optimus Link Dual in Russia.
