LG has unveiled the L Series III, the third generation of its low to mid-level Android smartphones with 3G connectivity. Specifically, they are the LG L90, L70, and L40, all three of which will be showcased in the upcoming Mobile World Congress later this month.
The follow-up to the Optimus L9 II, the LG L90 is a 4.7-inch handset with IPS LCD, qHD (540×960) resolution, 8-megapixel main camera, and 1.3-megapixel front camera. Internal hardware includes 1GB of RAM and 8GB storage. Of the three phones, the L90 comes with the largest battery capacity at 2540mAh.
The LG L70, on the other hand, is a 4.5-inch device with IPS LCD, WVGA (400×800) resolution, 1GB RAM, and 4GB internal storage. The rear camera will be either an 8-megapixel or 5-megapixel sensor, subject to market availability. It uses a 2100mAh swappable battery.
Finally, the LG L40 is the sequel to the Optimus L1 II. As the name implies, it offers the least attractive specs in exchange for the cheapest price: 3.5-inch display, HVGA (320×480) resolution, 4GB internal storage, a half gig of RAM, and at least a 1540mAh battery.

All three L Series III devices are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and run a custom Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. If you want a budget phone from a recognized brand with the latest version of Google’s operating system, these three are among the few choices to become available. LG’s bundled software and compatible accessories will compensate for the entry-level hardware specs.
LG has yet to announce when and where these smartphones will actually arrive, but all of them will be showcased at the MWC along with the LG G Pro 2. The data connectivity sans LTE does suggest developing countries as the target markets.
