LG L40, L70, and L90 announced as part of the L series III
LG has unveiled the third iteration of its L series smartphones – always the ones meant to take decent design traits and reasonable specs to low price points. Previously called Optimus L and Optimus L II, the series now drops the Optimus brand, following in the footsteps of the flagship G2 and the G2 Pro phablet. Hence, it looks like Optimus will soon be a thing of the past for Korea’s second largest smartphone maker.
There are three handsets in the L III series, the L40, L70, and L90. The LG L40 comes with a 3.5-inch 480×320 touchscreen, a 3 MP rear camera, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, 14.4 Mbps HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and either a 1,540 mAh or a 1,700 mAh battery (depending on market). Its dimensions are 109.4x59x11.9 mm.
The LG L70 has a 4.5-inch 800×480 IPS touchscreen, either an 8 MP or a 5 MP rear camera (depending on market), a VGA front camera, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, 21 Mbps HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,100 mAh battery. Its dimensions are 127.2×66.8×9.5 mm.
The LG L90 sports a 4.7-inch 940×560 IPS touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 1.3 MP front camera, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, 21 Mbps HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,540 mAh battery. Its dimensions are 131.6x66x9.7 mm.
All of these smartphones will ship running Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Right now no pricing information has been announced, and it’s unclear when these will become available. However, more details could be on the way next week, as MWC starts. So stay tuned.
