LG L Series III smartphones come preloaded with Android 4.4 KitKat
LG has never really been one to wait for major shows in order to announce its new hardware. Instead, the Life s Good crew has a tendency to introduce its new products in the weeks leading up to big events, just like it recently did with the G Pro 2. Today LG did just that once again, introducing us to its new L Series models ahead of Mobile World Congress.
The L Series III lineup of smartphones consists of the L40, L70 and L90 models, and as you might expect from their names, the higher-numbered units sport higher-end specs. Starting out at the low-end is the L40 and its 3.5-inch 480x320 display. Inside of the device is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and either a 1700mAh or 1540mAh removable battery, depending on the market that it s in. Rounding out the L40 s spec sheet is a 3-megapixel camera, 14.4Mbps HSPA connectivity and Android 4.4 running beneath LG s custom user interface.
One step above the L40 is the L70 and its 4.5-inch 800x480 IPS display. The L70 features the same 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 4GB of storage as the L40, but boosts its RAM up to a full gig and its HSPA connectivity up to 21Mbps. The L70 also adds a VGA front-facing shooter, and around back is either an 8-megapixel or 5-megapixel camera, depending on the market that it s in. A removable 2100mAh battery powers the L70, while a combination of Android 4.4 and LG s custom software overlay comes preloaded on the device.
Rounding out the L Series III trio is the L90. This device boasts a 4.7-inch 960x540 IPS screen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 8GB of storage, all of which make it the highest-end handset of this group. There s also 1GB of RAM, 21Mbps HSPA connectivity and a removable 2540mAh battery inside of the L90 s frame. On the outside is an 8-megapixel rear shooter and 1.3-megapixel front camera, and as with the other two L Series III phones, the L90 comes preloaded with Android 4.4 and LG s custom UI.
