With just over a week until every major smartphone manufacturer will be announcing its 2014 line-ups, LG has jumped the gun a bit by announcing its brand new range of L-Series Android handsets, which are the third generation of L-series devices.
The LG L90, L70 and L40 will all be making an official appearance at the Mobile World Congress next week in Barcelona but LG has now released information surrounding the handsets with the hope that the three Android smartphones won’t get lost in the wave of new stuff come next week.
All three of the new LG L-Series handsets are mid-range smartphones and are third generation devices, all of which will come in in black and white variations.
The LG L90 will be the biggest and most high-specced of the range with its 4.7-inch display with a 960 x 540 pixel resolution. It will run a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with a 2,540 mAh Lithium-polymer battery.
Next up is the slightly smaller LG L70, which has a 4.5-inch, 800 x 400 pixel display with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage plus a 5-megapixel camera which is all powered by a 2,100 mAh battery.
Finally at the bottom or the range is the LG L40 which has a 3.5-inch, 480 x 320 pixel display plus a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 512MB of RAM with 4GB of internal storage alongside a 3-megapixel camera and a 1,700 mAh battery.
All three phones will come with the latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system installed and ready to go.
The handsets were announced by LG in a video to back up the launch, with the company talking up the L Series III range. LG says that the new L Series “imports the premium design of [their] G Series” f handsets but also “includes the best of LG when it comes to Material, Patterns and Manufacturing process”.
The full range will be on show next week at MWC in Barcelona from February 24th and hopefully we will get some release and pricing information then.
