LG launches four new smartphones ahead of MWC 2015

By Jay Jay

Just days before the Mobile World Congress goes live, LG has announced four new mid-range smartphones with varied designs and specs to beat the crowd.

Called the LG Magna, LG Spirit, LG Leon and LG Joy, the four new phones are expected to be released within a week. However, LG has not confirmed the prices or the actual release dates as yet.

Speaking on the eve of the announcement, Juno Cho, President and CEO of LG, said, "LG's new mid-range collection continues our legacy of offering amazing smartphones at reasonable prices. For millions of consumers around the world, the deciding factor on which smartphone to buy isn’t how fast or how big it is but how balanced it is. With our new mid-range smartphones, more and more customers will be looking to LG for their next handsets."

Available in both 3G and 4G models, all four smartphones will contain their power and volume buttons on the back of the devices below the rear cameras.

The latest Android Lollipop OS will feature in all four phones which will also have similar rear camera specs of 8MP each except the LG Joy, which will make do with a 5MP camera.

A look at the specs will suggest that the LG Magna is probably going to be the most expensive of the newly launched phones. It contains the most powerful battery, the largest dimensions and the largest 5 inch HD display.
