LG has announced, quite discreetly, a complete renovation of its range of input devices and media for this year. Comes as a step forward compared to what we will see at the Mobile World Congress next week, taking advantage of that our attention is not lost (yet) in an ocean of new products from all manufacturers.
It is of the Magna LG, Spirit, Leon and Joy, four modest phones that renew much of the catalogue of the South Koreans this by 2015. With screen sizes that move between 4 and 5 inches, the LTE and Android 5.0 becomes more basic ranges from manufacturer.
Magna LG, Spirit, Leon and Joy, so are
The announcement has been pretty discreet, and we don’t have too many details about these devices, even if a few basic characteristics with which to know where we are moving. We will see the rest and try first-hand during MWC in Barcelona next week.
Repeats the fact that larger, in this case phone Magna and Spirit, are the best in specifications. With 5 and 4.7-inch screen receive higher resolutions, in 720 p, while the two smaller fit into its diagonals of 4.5 and 4.0-inch 480 x 800 points (or what is the same: the resolution of a Galaxy S2).
LTE and Android 5.0 finally reach all ranges
These models bring a decent specifications that will tell all once know your price. At the moment we have left ads like that they saw a couple of years ago, with resolutions manifestly insufficient and that now are beginning to make the user to forget about these limitations.
No doubt it is also good news that the latest version of Android comes to all devices, regardless of their performance (although seems that yes the version of LG Joy with 512 MB of RAM will stay in Android 4.4 and that minimum of Lollipop is giga of RAM, that already brings the vast majority of devices).
We see that finally the buttons on the back have come to stay, and even though I have my doubts about whether it will be more useful than annoying to the target of these phones, it seems that LG feels secure with its higher ranges design.
We also see that they come with the selfies in mind, in particular in the Magna, with its front-facing camera 5 megapixels. But in general in all these terminals, since they come with Gesture Shot, that we It allows you to shoot the camera using gestures in distances of up to 1 meter and a half (that could take by measuring one arm more joyous rosewood). Everything you need to do is a gesture with his hand and a three second count down will start.
Up to the range of LG entrance embraces the stick for selfies
The deployment of this new line (which surely will sell quite well through the operators by the end of year) It is a step forward for the LTE and its implementation for the 3 G, Although this depends on how you finish organizing LG versions of these devices, as we can see there are a few. Of course, we will leave doubts during the MWC next week.
We have put them to some mid-range phones that we already have on the market, to take some perspective and see where are LG shots with these great proposals.
