We have a full week ahead of us before the Mobile World Congress gets started at Barcelona. And for all this duration, news could be on the products which we will be having our first glimpses.
Most of them will die prematurely, but not the one from LG for sure.
While its South Korean rival has been kept busy in teasing their upcoming next Galaxy device, LG has made out a sort of confirmation on the products that will be unveiled during the annual mobile expo.
What’s interesting is that this year, LG isn’t keen to engage in a battle with the flagship smartphones from the rest, including Galaxy S6.
LG has announced the list of four new smartphones that will be unveiled next week, and they would be LG Magna, LG Spirit, LG Leon and LG Joy. And none of these would be pushed to a segment higher than an entry-mid level smartphone.
LG’s newbie models will be a replacement to the current L series and 4G enabled F series phones that fall under the entry level segment.
But word from the manufacturer is that there won’t be any compromise on the looks and design of these budget smartphones, as LG will bring in its premium smartphone design to the new arrivals.
With these additions, LG is looking to ‘nourish its brand power even further in the low-priced smartphone market’.
Each new model will be available for 3G as well as LTE networks, unlike LG’s previous series which had distinct models with distinct network connectivity.
All the models will be featuring a 1.2 GHz/ 1.3 GHz quad-core processor that comes with 1 GB RAM, with variation being made in the remaining specs that includes display, and camera specs.
LG Joy will be the smallest of the smartphone, arriving with a 4-inch screen. The screen size is increased moving up the series with LG Leon arriving with a 4.5 inch screen, LG Spirit with a 4.7-inch screen, and LG Magna with a 5-inch screen.
The latter two models will be packing an improved 720p display and will also provide 8 GB of on-board storage space.
MWC 2015 will also be hosting the venue for the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S6, although hinted by Samsung as only the ‘Next Galaxy’.
Microsoft could also be unveiling their flagship smartphone, Lumia 1030 with the most eyed addition from the tech-giants being the launch of Windows 10 OS.
