In addition to showcasing two higher-end devices, LG presented two other mid- to entry-level handsets at MWC 2015. Known as the LG Leon and Joy, they are the latest additions to the company's L-series of affordable, low-cost phones.
Both devices will have 4G and 3G variants, with the former being denoted by a shiny, faux-metallic design on its back cover. 3G models, on the other hand, will have a simpler plastic look.
The LG Leon has a metalic finish nd gives a premium feel to its users whereas the LG Joy is made out of plastic, which was not expected by most of LG user though.
LG Leon is slightly smaller than the Spirit and has a 4.5" screen, but with a noticeably lower resolution. At 480 x 854px, it's in the lower 200ppi range and is generally unimpressive. The LG Joy is the smallest of the bunch with its 4" screen. The screen has 480 x 800px, making for 233ppi pixel density.
Just like its curved cousin, the LG Leon has either an 8MP or a 5MP main camera, depending on your region, but the selfie camera has been further demoted to VGA. Above all LG Joy has a basic VGA selfie camera, while the main camera is a 5MP shooter.
Depending on the market, the Leon can come with either a 1.2. or 1.3 Ghz quad-core processor whereas the Joy will differ in that it will house either a 1.2 Ghz dual or quad-core processor.
Additional LG Leon features include 8 GB of internal storage accompanied by 1 GB of RAM, and availability in both LTE and 3G versions. The LG Joy has more limited resources and comes in two versions - one with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage and another with just 512MB of RAM and 4GB storage.
LG's Leon will be based on Android's Lollipop but in LG's Joy case we are not sure whether it will get shipped with Android Kitkat or Lollipop.
LG has packed a 1,900 mAh battery in both the flagship devices, even though both devices have heavy OS.
However LG indicates that pricing should be at par with previous L-Series handsets, which ran between $99-$199 (Rs. 6,155- 12,372). Hence keeping these two flagship devices in the mid-range category.
