LG on Monday announced that the company will showcase its latest budget smartphones: the LG Magna, LG Spirit, LG Leon, and LG Joy at this year's MWC tech show in Barcelona. LG will also use MWC to launch its new luxury smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane.
The mid-range Magna and Spirit smartphones will have slightly curved screens and rounded backs, for better grip. The two phones will also have in-cell touch displays.
LG Magna, the top-notch smartphone among the crowd, features a 5-inch 720p HD display, a quad-core CPU (1.2GHz or 1.3GHz depending on the market), 1GB of RAM and an 8GB of native memory. It also comes with an 8MP (rear) and a 5MP (front) camera. The phone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with LG's native UI on top. The device houses a 2,540mAh battery pack.
The LG Spirit, on the other hand, offers similar specs as the Magna, but in a smaller form factor. It comes with a 4.7-inch 720p display and 2,100mAh battery.
In the meanwhile, LG Leon has a 4.5-inch FWVGA display, and 1,900mAh battery. Lastly, the LG Joy features quad-core or dual-core CPU depending on market, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB or 4GB of expandable memory. The device will ship with Android 5.0 or Android 4.4. All these devices will be made available in 3G or LTE variants.
