LG unveils four new mid-range phones, aimed at users with selfie sticks

0

LG has announced it will unveil four new mid-range smartphones at the Mobile World Congress event which will be held in Barcelona next month.

The new devices – the LG Magna, LG Lean, LG Sprint and LG Joy – include variations of a number of key features found on the company’s existing flagship devices.

The LG Magna and Spirit, which are the premium devices in the range, feature slightly curved screens, drawing inspiration from the G series, which is the first time LG has included such design in budget models.

Another feature from the company’s flagship G series includes Glass View, which allows users to view missed calls and messages on screen even when the phones is turned off.

The phones also include LG’s Gesture Shot feature which allows users to use hand gestures to take selfies, with LG extending the feature to recognise gestures from as far as 1.5 metres away in order to accommodate the use of increasingly selfie sticks, which could be a factor in the these phones being a hit in Asia, where selfie sticks tend to be more popular than in the West.

The LG Magna includes a 5 inch 720p display, with 8MP and 5MP cameras on the front and rear of the device, respectively. The phone is powered by a 1.2GHz or 1.3GHz (depending on region) quadcore processor with 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM, which should be enough to fulfill the necessary social media activities, photo taking and basic web browsing.

 The other models in the range offer up similar specifications with different screen sizes from 4.0 inches (LG Joy) to 4.7 inches (LG Spirit).

The phones, which are available in 3G and 4G LTE variants are set to be available globally from next week, but no official word yet on pricing or when they will be available in Thailand.
