LG unveils new mid-range smartphones – Magna, Spirit, Leon & Joy

LG Magna, Spirit, Leon and JoyLG on Monday announced four new Android smartphones, which will be part of its mid-range portfolio. LG has ditched the usual L or F-series branding and the new phones have been simply named as LG Magna, LG Spirit, LG Leon and LG Joy. These phones will go on sale the week starting February 23 in select markets and will continue rolling out over the coming months.

The company will also be showcasing the phones at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona next month.

“LG’s new mid-range collection continues our legacy of offering amazing smartphones at reasonable prices. For millions of consumers around the world, the deciding factor on which smartphone to buy isn’t how fast or how big it is but how balanced it is. With our new mid-range smartphones, more and more customers will be looking to LG for their next handsets,”said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

On the design front, the smartphones sport LG’s trademark back-buttons and the rest of it is pretty much average.

LG’s Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy run on Android 5.0 with an upgraded version of the company’s UX, making them the company’s first Android phones to feature the latest Android version. The usual LG UX enhancements like Gesture Shot and Glance View are also present on the phones.

The smartphone pricing details are a mystery at this point and so are the India release plans.LG Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy
