LG has been busy in the run up to Mobile World Congress, having launched the G Pro 2 smartphone/tablet hybrid, and then teased the arrival of the G2 Mini. Now, with a week to go, it has announced the L Series 3 range, consisting of three new mid-range smartphones.
The core models in LG’s L Series 2 range are now a year old, making them ready for replacement. At the top of the pile is the L90 – LG has decided against calling the latest model the L9 III, thankfully – a 4.7-inch device with a 960×540 pixel resolution, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, and an 8-megapixel camera. It also has 1GB of RAM, a 1.3-megapixel front camera and a removable 2540mAh battery.
It’s joined by the L70, which has a smaller 4.5-inch, 480×800 pixel resolution screen, plus a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera. Finally, the L40 is the baby of the bunch, with a basic 480×320 pixel, 3.5-inch display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 3-megapixel camera.
LG has redesigned all three to better resemble the new look of the G Pro 2 and the G2, making them curvier and more modern. They all have 3G connectivity and run Android KitKat, which is great news. It is clear from the specs the L Series 3 devices should be very competitively priced, but at this stage LG hasn’t confirmed how much each will cost, nor has it provided any release information.
More details will probably come during or soon after Mobile World Congress, where the L Series 3 phones will be on display.
