The tech giant clearly intends to expand its ‘L’ series range of smartphones as the company has just revealed to public three new third-generation devices in the new L Series III range, named LG L90, L70 and L40.

The news comes a week before the devices’ debut at LG event at the Mobile World Congress scheduled for 24 February at Barcelona.

And while some details such as smartphones’ price tags and availability will be unveiled only during the official announcement, now we know that the three handsets feature the latest version of popular operating system – Android KitKat. Which is more, “L” series flagmans will feature 3G connectivity with different speeds.

However, bit is quite clear that LG L90 sports the highest specs, followed by L70 and L40. All three are reported to be available in Black and White colour variants.

As NDTV Gadgets reports, the LG l90 features a 4,7-inch display with 540×960 pixels resolution. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz, it also features a quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM.

Which is more, L90 has an 8-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. But we know nothing of the smartphone’s memory expansion, though the phone is said to come with a built-in 8GB storage.

A powerful 2540mAh removable battery will back this device. LG L90 will measures 131.6 x 66.0 x 9.7mm in dimensions.

The other model, the LG L70, has nearly the same screen size of 4.5-inch and comes with an IPS display packing a 400×800 pixels resolution.

The smartphone, like L90, will come with 1GB of RAM, but it will feature a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. This model will arrive on the market in two variants with a choice of 8-megapixel or 5-megapixel rear cameras. Both variants will have a front-facing VGA camera.

The L70 will include 4GB of built-in storage. The handset will be backed-up by a 2100mAh removable battery. The LG L70 measures 127.2 x 66.8 x 9.5mm in dimensions.

And finally the LG L40. This model will go on sale with the lowest price in line, as it has only a 3.5-inch screen with 320×480 pixels resolution.

The just unveiled LG L40 comes with a low 512MB of RAM and seemingly the same processor featured by L70 – a dual-core 1.2GHz chip.

In this version there’s no front-facing camera but it features a 3-megapixel shooter. Like the LG L70, the L40 will also arrive with 4GB of storage with no word on its expansion.

Depending on the market, the device will arrive in two removable battery model variants – 1700mAh and 1540mAh. The L40 is smaller and bit thicker in size than the L70 and the L90 (109.4 x 59.0 x 11.9mm).

“In addition to inheriting the refined design aesthetic that is synonymous with LG’s premium devices, the L SeriesIII provides an array of user benefits that extend far beyond a simple upgrade,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

“From the design to the OS to the UX, the L SeriesIII exemplifies LG’s commitment to bringing the best smartphone experience to as many consumers as possible. We’re confident that the L SeriesIII will be a strong volume driver in 3G markets.”
