LG has announced three new smartphones in its Android range under the L Series III banner. The handsets lie in the upper-end, mid-range and lower-end categories respectively and feature design inspired by the company’s premium G series.
All of them come with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed which is quite a plus. They are named L90, L70 and L40 based on their importance.
LG Series III L90
The top-end phone of this lineup comes with a 4.7″ IPS display with qHD resolution. Under the bonnet, you get a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, alongside 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage, expandable via microSD.
At the back lies an 8 megapixel shooter with HD video while the front carries a 1.3 megapixel shooter too. The phone is 9.7mm thick and is powered by a 2,540 mAh battery.
LG Series III L70
The L70 lies at the center of the entire range. It comes with a 4.5″ IPS display with 480 x 800 resolution.
Under the hood, you get a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor along with 1 GB RAM and 4 GB expandable storage. The back features a 5 megapixel camera.
The phone is powered up by a 2,100 mAh battery while it comes with an unflattering 9.5mm waistline.
LG Series III L40
This phone lies in the bottom-end of the newly-announced range. It packs a 3.5″ display at the front with 480 x 320 resolution.
Underneath, you’ll get a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB expandable storage. At the back lies a lonely 3 megapixel cameras.
While the phones feature nothing particularly earth-smashing, if priced appropriately, they might open a new outlet for entry into the smartphone market. And don’t forget that LG is the exact company that brought us the last two Nexus phones.
