LG Joy, Leon, Spirit and Magna officially announced
With less than a week to go before the start of the 2015 edition of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, South Korean manufacturer LG announced today four new mid-range Android smartphones. The new handsets are called the LG Joy, Magna, Leon, and Spirit. All of the four new handsets will be offered in both 3G and 4G/LTE versions.
The four new LG smartphones address various screen sizes: the LG Joy features a 4-inch display with a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels, the LG Leon comes with a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 854 by 480 pixels, the LG Spirit features a 4.7-inch display running at 1280 by 720 pixels, while the LG Magna comes with a 5-inch display with the same 1280 x 720 resolution.
As far as the internals are concerned, the four new LG smartphones are quite similar. The 3G versions of the LG Spirit, Leon, Joy, and Magna feature a quad-core Mediatek MT6582 chipset clocked at 1,3 GHz. The 4G versions of the LG Spirit, Leon, and Magna come with a 1,2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410. The smallest of the bunch, the LG Joy, comes with a low-end 1,2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200. The LG Spirit, Magna, and Leon all come with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable internal storage, and 8MP primary cameras. The LG Joy comes with just 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a 5MP camera.
Design-wise, these new mid-rangers from LG are obviously inspired by last year's LG G3 as the manufacturer did its best to lend a premium look to what is otherwise a pure mid-range series. The LTE versions will come with a metallic back, while the 3G versions will feature a plastic back with a brushed metal texture.
LG has yet to announce exact pricing, but chances are the we'll get to learn more about these handsets next week at MWC 2015.
