New LG L80 unveiled in Indonesia, coming to Russia too in May
LG keeps adding smartphones to its L III series. First, the line had only three members, all announced at the same time in February: the L40, L70, and L90. Then the L65 got official, and now it’s the L80’s turn.
The new handset has been so far only introduced in Indonesia, though it’s set to arrive in Russia as well in the second half of May. The LG L80 is, like the rest of the members of the L III family, a lower-midrange offering aimed at getting a smartphone into the hands of as many people as possible.
The L80 comes with a 5-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, a VGA front camera, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage space, microSD card support, all the usual connectivity options, and a 2,540 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat, which is a huge plus in this price segment.
Speaking of which, the LG L80 costs 2.5 million Indonesian Rupiah, which amounts to around $215 or €155 at the current exchange rates. Pricing for Russia hasn’t been announced (or leaked) yet, and it’s unclear which other markets the L80 will make it to in the future. That said, it’s safe to assume that LG will focus on “emerging markets” with this particular phone (given its specs).
