LG makes L90, L70, L40 official with Android 4.4 KitKat for emerging 3G markets

Just as we predicted, LG is bringing their L series back for Mobile World Congress 2014 with the LG L90, LG L70, and LG L40. The devices attempt to follow LG’s premium G lineup’s lead with top-notch design, packaged with solid mid-range specs for emerging markets.

Customers won’t have to wait for the highest-end OS  though: all three devices will launch with Android 4.4 KitKat.

    I’d actually get these as a viable secondary phone due to KitKat. Good job LG.

    Great now if only they could make 4.4.x official on their current high end phones.

  • eilegz

    if it cost less than 130 that would be great otherwise its a waste of time moto g and hongmi would be better choice for the lowend

  • Samuel Serafim

    Only L90 is better than Moto G. Moto G is the king of cheap phones, but i dont know Blu company yet.

  • basanta

    i am using Acer Liquid and its really great. Infact i am in love with it :)

  • Rimsha Rajput

    Another aspect that borrow from the high ranges is the new housing Quick View , protected on both sides.
