LG has had enough reason to rejoice, as the South Korean tech company recently announced that it sold 59.1 million smartphones in 2014, an increase of 24% from the previous year.
Thus the next step for LG with regards to the smartphone may likely come in the form of the next generation G4 handset, alongside a slew of entry-level smartphones.
While we're not expecting to see the G4 at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) which is to be held in Barcelona next month, but there's a possibility to see a new low-end handset with a 4.7-inch display to be introduced at MWC 2015.
If latest reports are to be believed, LG might introduce the successor to the LG L70 in the coming days. This can be said as reportedly, an Indian import and export database site Zauba has listed unannounced the Y70, LG's forthcoming entry-level smartphone. It looks like LG is testing the new phone.
The listing also says that the device will feature a 4.7-inch HD screen, making it an entry-level phone. Notably, the LG Y70 will run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
We're still not sure exactly what to make of the LG Y70. However, industry insiders believe that the tech giant from South Korea could attempt to undercut the Huawei Honor Holly and Lenovo A6000 with a cheaper lineup of entry-level Android smartphones.
GizBot will keep you posted on the next update on LG Y70 when more information becomes available.
