The LG Optimus L5, an Android 4.0 handset that is equipped with dual SIM capabilities, is readying itself for a European launch this month.

U.K., Germany, and France will be the first countries to receive it. Afterward, customers in the Middle East, Asia, Central, and South America will be able to nab the device.

Unfortunately, LG has not released any information about a U.S. release.

CNET first caught wind of the LG Optimus L5 back in February, where it was unveiled at Mobile World Congress. It was announced in conjunction with the Optimus L7and L3.

The smartphone will have a 4-inch HVGA touch-screen display, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and it'll run on a 800MHz Cortex A5 processor.
