KOREAN PHONE MAKER LG has announced a trio of smartphones ahead of next week's Mobile World Congress (MWC), the LG L90, L70 and L40 handsets.

The LG Series 3 mid-range handsets follow last year's Series 2 phones and offer affordable alternatives to LG's flagship G Flex and G2 smartphones.

The LG L90 is the highest specification of the three. There's a 4.7in 960x540 resolution display powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and Google's Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile operating system that will be skinned with LG's custom user interface features.

The device will be available in black and white and features dual 8MP and 2MP cameras, 8GB of internal storage and a 2,540mAh battery. Despite being the highest specified of the three, it has no support for LTE, although the L90 will support HSDPA.

The LG L70 and LG L40 also will run Google's Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile operating system and sport 4.3in and 3.5in screens, respectively. LG has yet to reveal the full specifications of these two handsets.

LG CEO Dr Jong-seok Park said, "In addition to inheriting the refined design aesthetic that is synonymous with LG's premium devices, the L Series [3] provides an array of user benefits that extend far beyond a simple upgrade.

"From the design to the OS to the UX, the L Series [3] exemplifies LG's commitment to bringing the best smartphone experience to as many consumers as possible. We're confident that the L Series [3] will be a strong volume driver in 3G markets."

The INQUIRER will be at MWC in Barcelona next week, so check back then for all the latest. µ
