Before launching LG G Flex 2 flagship smartphone in the US, LG has finally moved on from its F, G and L series and launched for smartphone with very interesting names: Magna, Leon, Joy and Spirit. The launch of the middle range smartphones from LG is making the news thoroughly as the makers have launched the devices just a week ahead of MWC 2015. There is no doubt of the fact that MWC 2015 is one of the largest events of the early part of 2015. Thus launching a set of smartphone just before the event seems like a bold move on the part of the makers.
LG has added a few new features to the four smartphones. One of the best features is the addition of the gesture shot for the middle range smartphones. In addition, LG has also increased the distance to recognize gestures to 1.5 meters, which is an added bonus for people who are obsessed with selfies. The increased gesture recognition distance will also facilitate the use of a selfie stick with the gesture shot mode.
The best of the lot is Magna, which comes with a 5 inch HD display, 1GB RAM, quad core processors along with 8 GB of internal storage and pre-installed Android L. The device has a 8 megapixel primary camera and a 5 megapixel secondary camera.
The second best is Sprit with a 4.7-inch HD display, 8 megapixel primary camera and 1 megapixel secondary camera. The device also flaunts 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, quad core processors and pre-installed Android L. Leon and Joy follow LG Spirit with 4.5-inch FWVGA and 4 inch WVGA display. The remaining configuration is the same as Magna and Spirit. Leon has a 8 megapixel primary camera and a VGA secondary camera while for Joy the primary camera gets diminished to 5 megapixel as the secondary set up stays same.
According to the reports, LG will be launching the devices at various locations very soon. All the four smartphones will be available in either 3G or 4G models depending on the network availability in certain countries. Reports also suggest that LG might just downgrade the processors and cameras in some countries. Although no official report is out in this respect, the experts believe that the major markets will receive the best configured devices.
The Global rollout begins this week and the hand on reviews will probably be out by the end of the MWC 2015. With quite a few smartphones lined up for a launch at the MWC 2015, it will be interesting to see how these smartphones fares. LG is certainly looking forward to make inroads into the middle ranged market, where Samsung holds a huge market share.
